Citadel: Forged with Fire is a sandbox fantasy RPG and it seems to be heavily influenced by ARK: Survival Evolved. The game twists the recently established staples of the sandbox/survival RPG genre with airborne mounted combat and a healthy dose of magic.
Citadel: Forged with Fire looks like a mix of Skyrim, Conan: Exiles and Harry Potter. The game's pre-release footage looks like it will feature the usual sandbox stuff we have come to expect from games like ARK, but adds airborne mounted combat, its own take creature taming and a spell casting system on top.
"As a newly minted apprentice of the magic arts, you will set off to the dangerous world of Ignus. Tame mighty beasts, forge alliances, explore uncharted territories or fight for dominance", reads the game's Steam page .
While talking to a few people who participated in the beta test that took place over the last weekend we heard that the game is still far from finished, but seems to have potential.
Aside from some server issues, a lot of praise was directed towards Citadel's flying brooms and various spells, like telekinesis, which open up a lot of possibilities for PvP shenanigans. Citadel also seems to allow for a lot of creativity with its construction mechanics.
The game will be entering Steam Early Access tomorrow 26 July 2017, and becoming an early adopter costs about £20 at the time of writing.
