What is Zeal?

Zeal is an indie Action RPG that allows you to build your character and fight against players in Arenas, slay creatures in Dungeons and conquer savage lands against both in Conquest Mode

No grinding or leveling

Forgoing traditional MMORPG aspects, in the world of Zeal you login and pick your character. Once you've done that, you jump right into the action! Be it solo mode or with friends, Zeal is MMORPG combat with none of the MMORPG grind.

Completely customizable classes

No character in Zeal has a predefined role. Their abilities, appearance and stats are all able to be altered. You create a character custom-tailored to your specific design and taste.

PvP focus with PvE elements

Zeal is a PvP-focused game but will also include multiple PvE modes of play. Dungeons that will challenge your skills along with both single player and co-op campaigns await for all those who can stand to stop fighting each other long enough!

Gameplay

Zeal’s combat depends on strategy, positioning, reaction speed, aiming and teamwork.

As players thrive to master their build, they must read enemy strategies quickly, trying to predict their enemy depending on what kind of spells they use while synergizing with their teammates.

Fast-paced combat and realistic physics allow Zeal to keep up the feeling of fluid gameplay. Dynamic weather, environmental destruction, adaptive AI and many other features will await you in game.

Classes

The game will have up to 15 classes on release: Brute, Judicator, Naturalist, Wizard, Warrior, Shaman, Outlaw, Ranger, Witch, Cultist, Lancer, Shapeshifter, Beastmaster, Cleric and Exile.

Example class: Judicator

With profound customization options such as picking weapon styles, abilities, stats and perks, players will be able to play any role they want: Tank, Support, Healer, Nuker, Bruiser, Melters (Damage-over-Time specs) or Pet Masters and all sorts of hybrids.

More details coming soon

The Lore

Zeal takes place in two worlds with fates entwined by corruption of a malicious and unknown force. Haltorn, also known as the old lands, is a bastion of civilization. Populated by numerous kingdoms, clans, guilds, orders and cults, the peace shared between these many different cultures is ever-strained and the threat of open conflict is never far away.

As a treacherous rift roils open, creating a bridge to the new world of Archea, the lords and those of power in the old lands send their greatest champions on a quest to investigate, scavanage and conquer the tumultuous new lands.

They know little of the savagery and danger that awaits them. Though their skills are sharp and their might is great, will they face the challenges of the new world — and one another — to emerge victorious?
