Welcome to Rise of Agon!

An epic fantasy MMORPG set in the dynamic handcrafted world of Agon, where character progression is not restricted to predefined paths. With no classes or levels, players have the freedom to mold their character to fit their own personalized play style. The unique fighting system embraces twitch-based, first-person combat and full loot mechanics which drives the foundation of risk versus reward. Forge alliances with neighboring clans to lay claim to territory, wage war against those who seek to disrupt it and be a driving force behind the political landscape of Agon.

Discover the world of Agon, a realm filled with verdant forests and dry wastelands, quirky and dangerous creatures, and kingdoms built by players. With no instances and only one server, massive open-world battles can begin at any moment. Always look over your shoulder in the world of Agon, because nowhere is safe, and everywhere is full of potential danger!

The threat of death has real consequences, with the penalty being that players’ bodies become fully lootable in certain areas. This adrenaline rush is intensified by the combat system, which applies real-world physics and free aim to a first-person point of view. What separates you from your opponent in combat is real-life skill in controlling your character.

Your first steps

Agon can be a dangerous place. There are over 260 different types of dangerous monsters ready to waylay an unprepared traveler. The first thing a new arrival will have to grapple with is the controls. You won't survive long if you don't know your way around the interface.
