Wakfu – turn-based tactical Massively Multiplayer Online Game

Last Updated on July 13, 2021

Wakfu is a turn-based tactical Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMORPG) and a television cartoon, under development by Ankama Studio. It takes place in the same fantasy world as Dofus, 1000 years later. Players will start a fantastic and epic adventure. Together with their magic powers, they either fight against the fauna and flora of the World, or tame them to become breeders or farmers. Thanks to an icon-driven and intuitive language, players can interact to create alliances or confront each other in heroic fights. Each of these actions will directly and considerably influence the economy and the rules that govern the World.

Wakfu is based on an idea where players have to keep the world in the state that they want it. Planting and harvesting has impact on the environment on the area you’re in, as does your fights.

Wakfu will be primarily pay-to-play, with a small free-to-play area for players to sample once it comes out of the beta stage.

Features include:

  • Attractive graphics.
  • Manages fights against other players (PvP), as well as fights against monsters (PvM) in a turn-based style.  A sphere of combat is created each time a confrontation occurs, forming a closed system in which the combatants use strategy to overcome their opponents.
  • Character progression.
  • Zones and spell states.
  • Offers a political system that is open to everyone.
  • A dynamic environment.
  • Player based economy.
  • Learn a profession:
    • Harvesting and craftsmanship – 6 harvesting professions (the farmer, the herbalist, the lumberjack, the trapper, the fisherman, and the miner/fisherman) and 10 different crafting professions (baker, chef, weapons masters, armourer, jeweller, tailor, leather dealers, and handyman).
  • Discover or rediscover the World of Twelve’s best-known places and characters, including Astrub, Amakna, Bonta, the Miss Uglies and the famous Black Crow.
  • The flora and fauna in the game form a real, living ecosystem managed by the players.
