Microids and Olydri Games have announced a co-publishing agreement for Noob: The Factionless.
Noob: The Factionless is a turn-based RPG set in the universe of Noob. The franchise was created in 2008 by Fabien Fournier and Anne-Laure Jarnet, recounting the comical adventures of a team of newbie players in a fictional MMORPG called Horizon.
The game has you play as four heroes who alternate between the real world and a virtual universe known as Horizon. It features several gameplay mechanics including exploration, turn-based combats, as well as main and secondary quests to complete.
According to Microids:
Noob: The Factionless tells the adventure of four beginner players, forming the Rush guild comprising Baster, an eager and competitive Neogician; Drek, his best friend and blundering Berserker; May, an ambitious and sometimes arrogant Fortune-teller; and finally Logs, a dreamer and naïve Elementalist passionate about cooking.
Together, they hope to quickly reach level 100 and unlock their Legendary class to join the elite of Horizon players. They wish to see the Rush guild becoming one of the greatest guilds in the game alongside the Noob, Justice, Roxxor and Pro Game Master guilds.
Besides the challenges encountered in the virtual world of this MMO, they will also have to complete quests ‘IRL’ (in real life).
Noob: The Factionless is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch in 2023. The game is currently available on Steam Early Access, although it is only in French at the moment. Retail versions, as well as a Collector’s Edition, will also launch simultaneously; the game will include localization in several languages at launch.
