Seven Knights 2 - Open Beta Gameplay First Impressions and How You Can Play It


Seven Knights 2 Story and Gameplay

Introduction


It has been over 6 years since the launch of the original Seven knights and now we are finally getting the second release in the series. The long awaited for Seven Knights 2 by Netmarble has just launched its open beta on iOS and Android in South Korea this November 18, 2020 with a huge success! Unlike its counterpart, Seven Knights 2 actually falls into the mobile 3D MMORPG genre with live action combat system. In this article, let's talk about exactly what is Seven Knights 2, the gameplay, different game modes, the story, the characters and how to play it if you don't live in Korea.

Just Another Mobile RPG/MMORPG?


At first, I wasn't too sure what to expect from Seven Knights 2 as it looked like any other Korean MMORPGs for mobile. As I started playing the game, I quickly realised that this was not the case. On top of the incredible graphics and engaging story line, the game boasts a very unique 4 party member combat system while players control one character at a time but can choose to swap to any party member at any given moment. The combat also feels like a perfect blend between strategy and live action where players will have the option of going auto-play or manually moving and attacking. Seven Knights 2 will have over 46 playable characters each with their own unique skill sets, gear customisation, roles and lore.

The Story of Seven Knights 2


Fans of the first Seven Knights rejoice as you will see many familiar characters in the second instalment. The game will take place 20 years after the first game with many story and character cross-overs and connecting parts. I won't talk too much about the details of the story line, but from what we've seen so far, it has been incredible and engaging. At one point, I thought I was playing a Final Fantasy game as the production was so amazing. (I am beginning to sound like a fanboy) Nonetheless, Seven Knights 2 definitely had some love and care put behind the story line and production to give players a wonderful fantasy experience.

Characters and Classes


Seven Knights 2 features over 46 playable characters where some will be given to you as you progress through the game while others you'll have to unlock through a GACHA system. Each character will have a specific role between offensive, defensive, support and multiple type/aoe and shooter/long ranged. You will also be able to set different formations and party mechanics to create a smart/strategic party setup.

Each character also has 4 unique skills and an ultimate skill which can be all used automatically or manually depending on your preference. Furthermore, each character you own can also be equipped with different items and customised to your liking through other progression mechanics. Having a deep knowledge of each character and their specialities will help you put together the perfect party to get through the game.

Open World and Multiplayer


Players are put into a massively open world with other players but the entire story line will be played solo in your party of 4. However, beyond the main story, players can see others players and their party in the open world, talk with other players in the chat system, do boss raids with up to 8 players at a time while choosing one character as your main. There are also other game modes where players can choose to do solo or in teams with other players. Keep in mind, online-multiplayer will not allow you to have your initial party of 4 and will make you decide to pick only one controllable character similar to the multiplayer in Genshin Impact. Seven Knights 2 also has a PvP system where you can fight other players 4v4 but it is heavily leaned towards combat power (CP) which means there may potentially be some pay to win.
