For those of you who haven't seen the gameplay footage for Blue Isle Studio’s Citadel: Forged with Fire, it features some pretty vicious yet comedic PvP allowing you to use a variety of weapons and magic with the ability to create your own style of play.

During the PvP gameplay it shows two magicians exploring around Ignus, creating a guild and looking for a place to start building a settlement. They soon encounter a string of dangers along the way which are abruptly handled by one player scorching the enemy with fireballs and the other using what looks like quick jolts of electricity. Players are given a huge variety of clothing and weapon options like enchanted weapons and armor or custom-crafted broomsticks, you can also use tamed airborne companions like dragons and giant eagles or craft elixirs that allow players to do the impossible.

Citadel: Forged with Fire is an online sandbox RPG with magic, spell-casting, exploration and resource gathering. You start out as an apprentice in the magical arts and then begin to adventure around Ignus, the new and hazardous world placed before you. Your goal is exploring, advancing, forging alliances, gathering, building kingdoms, protecting your builds and creating a name for yourself helping you stand out from Houses found throughout Ignus.

From what has been displayed in some online trailers and gameplay footage, the game includes a very wide variety of features. According to the game’s website, you can explore a “36 square kilometer landmass of sweeping plains, dense forests, craggy mountains, festering swamps and frozen tundra.” The game seems to be very large and diverse while introducing a lot of different scenery and including a fair amount of variability in the gameplay features.

Resource gathering and sharing between comrades seems to be a prime aspect of the game being needed to craft clothing, armor, buildings or even gathering ingredients to create potions and elixirs. These tasks of gathering resources and building structures can all be performed while in PvP. Another prime aspect of the game is be forging alliances with other online players and treating what’s called “houses” Which are like guilds or factions and allow players to become part of a team and go up against other houses.

The game has received mixed reviews on Steam. With a lot of the negative reviews pointing out flaws on optimization and frame rate issues. The game is currently in Early Access, meaning the developers are still working to develop a stable version.
