Metin2 is a free-to-play 3D MMORPG made by Ymir Entertainment. It was at first only released in Korea, but it gained fast popularity in Europe too.
Metin2 is all about the ancient Asian region and the fights between feudal empires. Those empires arose after a terrible disease spread through the land and killed or transformed many inhabitants. Each empire fights now for their survival and doesn’t trust the other empires.
At the start, players can choose between the five classes Warrior, Ninja, Lycan, Sura and Shaman. They decide afterwards for what empire they want to fight. Aside from the choice of gender and equipment, there are only a few possibilities to customise the character, making most players look the same. While player progress, they gain stat points that they can allocate to their four primary stats Cont, Int, Dex and Str.
One of Metin2’s strong points are the guilds. Players can join guilds to reap some benefits, creating a guild base and fight together against other guilds everywhere in the world. Apart from the guild battles, there is also the war of nations, where they fight against players of other empires. One can assume that Metin2 is heavily based on PvP-fights.
