A look at Cabal 2, the upcoming free-to-play MMO


A sequel to the free-to-play MMO Cabal Online, developed by South Korea's ESTsoft, is quickly approaching beta. I got to take a short tour of one of cabal 2 instances (with some of the game's developers leading the way and making sure I didn't get completely killed), which featured a number of increasingly more powerful boss monsters.

I typically prefer to tank, as I find hitting things with giant weapons is more fun than standing at the back of the crowd lobbing magical attacks, but the level 40 wizard I was given to play felt powerful as hell, particularly with his explosive, roaring, screen-shaking fire attacks and swirling ice vortexes. While I wasn't wielding enormous axes or blades, I still felt like I was seriously whomping on the monsters we faced.

The bosses had their own fire attacks, explosive pillars of flame that would target each of us if they weren't interrupted by our own attacks and debuffs. As one towering boss moved around the arena she left a massive trail of scorching lava, giving us less and less room to find solid footing as the fight wore on. The devs told me that if the battle lasted too long, players could find themselves with nowhere safe to stand.Something I really enjoyed about combat was Cabal 2's combo system. I'd launch an attack, in this case, a fireball. Once the first fireball had been hurled, an icon appeared briefly on my screen. Tapping the fireball key a second time when the icon appeared launched the attack again, and if I chained these key presses together just right, the result was a four-move attack with extra damage dealt at the end of the combo (plus some cool animations for each stage).

It took a few fights to get the timing down, but once I did I got really good at it, and combos gave the combat a fun reflex-based challenge as well as the feeling that I was building and rebuilding on my own power, as opposed to simply selecting attacks from the hotbar and waiting for them to recharge.There's also a special Battle Mode power I got to try, which briefly stripped me of my usual powers and abilities and provided me an entirely new hotbar with a handful of more powerful specialized attacks. With a short duration and long cooldown, Battle Mode is something to be used sparingly and only when you really need it—use it too early in a fight, and it might not be available if something bigger and tougher appears. In the instance we played, something bigger and tougher appeared every few minutes.
