First released in 1997, Tibia is one of the most long-running Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs). With more than a decade to draw in new players the userbase is huge, with active player numbers in the six figures. Unfortunately the global appeal of the game can make interactions difficult, as many players do not speak the same languages.
One of the big pluses of this game is the extremely low system requirements – compared to other MMORPGs. Basically any system can handle it. In addition to that, the download is nice and small, making it getting started a breeze. This is however the result to some quite simple graphics that may not be enough for some players that are used to big budget effects.
Players will see a nicely simple user interface, with inventories and other data confined to the side of the screen. Both PvP and non PvP servers are available, and ten years of updates means that there is a lot to play through and experience.
The free version will leave your character somewhat limited, with your character restricted to only four vocations and a limited list of features, unless you pay extra.
Tibia wouldn’t still be running if it wasn’t an enjoyable game. If you can get past the graphics then you will find a huge community and a lot of content. The free version is well worth your time and you might find yourself happily paying for extra features.
