A few new details have surfaced regarding the upcoming Xbox MMORPG True Fantasy Live Online. Five races will be available for character creation: elf, dwarf, hobbit, the ever-present human, and one mysterious unnamed race, which will be revealed at a later date. At the beginning of the game, players will start at a small home, which can be decorated and expanded to serve as their personal base. Players can also set up their own stores, but only after making themselves known in the bazaar and gaining the trust of fellow players.
Battles will go beyond the standard command-based fare by allowing players to counter the attacks of the enemy. The game promises to have approximately 70 different magic spells for the player to use against unfortunate foes, and players have the option of riding into battle astride a dragon or a horse that they have caught and raised.
So far, True Fantasy Live Online has received only a vague release date of 2003 for Japan.
