When is Tower of Fantasy released?
Tower of Fantasy will be available on August 11 on PC, iOS and Android. At its launch, the title will be translated into French. And if the latter is considered a serious competitor to Genshin Impact, it is because it is published by Tencent, the Chinese digital giant.
Basically, what is Tower of Fantasy?
If we say so much that Tower of Fantasy is a competitor of Genshin Impact, it is because it collects the principle in broad strokes. Thus, We are facing an open world action role-playing game with a very anime aesthetic in which we obtain weapons that have different capacities and that allow us to carry out builds depending on what you have equipped. Exploring the regions, we deal with monsters we encounter along the way before rushing into dungeons or attacking with other players.
Tower of Fantasy is a very particular gacha in terms of its character system, we’ll explain why. At the beginning of the adventure, the player creates their avatar using a very advanced customization tool that allows you to do whatever you want. As proof, several anime or video game characters have been reproduced in the Chinese version thanks to this extensive customization and it is also a practice encouraged by the developers.
Where the game is quite original is in the way it handles other characters. Indeed, when you make a draw in Tower of Fantasy, sometimes you get weapons that correspond to heroes. So you can equip your weapons to make the build of your choice while keeping your avatar physics created at the start of the game. However, for those who want it, it is also possible to assume the appearance of the character whose weapon has just been recovered, for those who appreciate the character design of the game. these heroes that are called Simulacron in English cannot be played directly, but actually serve as skins. A quite surprising system therefore and that differs from the team of Genshin Impact characters.
To use the comparison again, in Genshin Impact, the combat system is based on switching characters on the fly to create elemental reactions that deal heavy damage to your opponents. In Tower of Fantasy, we don’t change the fighter during a fight, but the weapons between the three that your avatar carries. Thus, each weapon has its own capacity and that is close to a particular role: some lend themselves more to tanks (to take damage), others to DPS (to do as much damage as possible) or even to healers (heal). Also, your character can become one of their roles thanks to the Soul Resonance system. Wholesale, Depending on the three weapons you equip, you can benefit from a significant passive bonus that brings your stats closer to one of the three roles. above. And for solo players, there’s also a balanced passive bonus. Therefore, it may be in our interest to switch from one build to another depending on the situation. Beyond the choice of weapons, the game offers a lot of equipment that you can put on your character to increase the overall stats.
As for the gameplay, each weapon has a basic attack and a special ability. In order to further invigorate the action, by dodging an enemy hit at the right time, you can freeze time around you to chain your opponent however you want. Kind of reminiscent of Bayonetta’s Witch Time mechanic, except here it fills up a very special gauge. In fact, when fighting, a gauge fills up, shown by a blue circle around the weapon icon. Once completed, you can activate a “burst”, which could be translated as surge in French, which is, in a way, the last attack of the weapon you have activated.
As for the combos, there are several depending on the situation, unlike Genshin Impact. Beyond the basic chain, you will have different attacks after dodging or if you hit from the air. Lastly, you can also charge your shot on the ground or in the air, which re-rolls multiple shots that can even get stuck in combos. Suffice it to say that the game allows you to make varied sequences thanks to these many movements and the possibility of changing weapons at any time.. Finally, there are also relics, special items that you can equip that have various unique powerful effects like a vortex, a storm, or transforming you into a robot.
What form does the open world of Tower of Fantasy take?
One of the main plots of Tower of Fantasy, offers many vehicles to explore its open world: motorcycle, jet-pack, ice surfing… We recover them in different ways throughout the adventure and can be used thanks to the relics provided. Beyond that, we find elements of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that were also present in Genshin Impact, such as the possibility of climbing all the walls or even flying through the air thanks to a glider.
Beyond that, the world of Tower of Fantasy wants to be rich in activities. Therefore, there are many large towers that allow you to reveal a new area by removing the fog of war once you reach the top. Thanks to this, we can locate the different points of interest that are in a region and that can make it possible to recover summon orbs for the standard banner. These activities can take many different forms, often quite simple puzzles. There are also ruins that are Zelda-like dungeons that you have to do alone and that allow you to recover useful resources. Finally, you can also come across chests with golden halos that are protected by a guardian that you must defeat to get your hands on them. But Tower of Fantasy not only offers fights, as there are also mini-games of different types that allow you to recover a coin to spend in a special shop.
Tower of Fantasy servers are made up of about a hundred players, a small number so that users can easily find friends. Together, it’s possible to take on tougher enemies in dungeons or raids, and this is where the opportunity for each player to take on a role becomes important. With a balanced team consisting of a tank, a DPS, and a healer, players are more likely to survive. This is especially the case against world bosses, which are particularly powerful enemies. they respawn every hour and when defeated can drop SSR weapons, the highest level of rarity at the moment, as well as useful resources. To play with friends, you can create a guild which is unlocked at level 30. And again, Tower of Fantasy not only offers fights as there is also an amusement park in which you can have fun with your friends through various activities and take poses to take screenshots.
Tower of Fantasy is scheduled for August 11 on PC, iOS, and Android.
