Trailblazing MMORPGS

Ember Sword is a free to play, modern, and truly player-driven fantasy Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game.

It's a modern rewrite of the Free to Play business model in favor of the user, and a love letter to MMORPG gamers. Yes, we had to turn the traditional MMO monetization model completely upside down. We don’t sell lootboxes, we don’t account-bind your cosmetics, and there’s no VIP system nor Pay to Win.
