The human and elven races have already been tested in the upcoming browser MMORPG City of Steam first two Alpha Weekends. Later tonight the steampunk inspired game will launch its third Alpha Weekend at 10:00 pm EDT (03:00 am GMT).
So you might be wondering what the feck is City of Steam? Is it some sort of Steam city building game? Well no its a free to play browser-based MMORPG similar in visual style and gameplay to games like Neverwinter Nights, Runescape, Baldur’s Gate with a bit of Vagrant Story. However what makes it different to these games is that it based on architecture and style of a steam punk universe. It is a pretty interesting take on the whole fantasy RPG theme.
