Wizardry Online Prepares for Launch With Tutorial Videos

on January 12, 2013 3:24 PM

Wizardry Online isn’t exactly your usual MMORPG, with many unconventional features like permadeath, random leveling, lack of over time healing and nearly unrestricted PvP.

The open beta is going to end on January the 14th, with launch following on the 16th, and while admittedly I wasn’t overly impressed, I’m sure that there’s a niche of players that can like this kind of game, especially between the old¬†Wizardry¬†fans.

To help smooth the transition a bit for those that aren’t used to the rather brutal mechanics included in the game Sony Online Entertainment released a series of tutorial videos, that have the added bonus of showing a whole lot of gameplay to those that may still be on the fence. You can enjoy them below (I included two older videos, the first and the sixth, because they are part of the series and they were, for some reason, published by themselves. Watching the series without them doesn’t make much sense).
