On November 17th, the new MMO Frozen Flame (Steam) will start in Early Access and can then be played by everyone. The game scores with a unique game concept and nice graphics. We at MeinMMO summarize.
What is Frozen Flame game? The survival MMORPG draws you into a world that is constantly being destroyed and is called Arkana. There is a magical flame within her that can curse living beings and then turn them into insane monsters.
You should only survive until the so-called cataclysm occurs and your world and your character are destroyed. Or you manage to stop the whole thing.
To overcome this, you can play the following content in Frozen Flame:
In many aspects and in appearance, it is strongly reminiscent of the failed survival game Rend, but would like to make a lot better with its own ideas.

Exciting mechanics even win prizes
How is the game going? While you are playing Frozen Flame and smashing your way through the world with your character, there is a constant danger lurking in your back. You complete quests, craft and defeat bosses, either alone or with up to 50 other players on the official servers, but you can also create your own.
Everything is aimed at preventing the cataclysm that is heralded by a big boss in a fortress. If this happens, the game world and everything in it will be destroyed, including your character.
Then you have to start over, but keep some of your progress, a few items and your power. So you get stronger with each end of the world until you eventually manage to stop the cataclysm.
This goes down well: Frozen Flame has already won numerous prizes for this idea. Including one for the best game design at the White Nights 2018 and at the NYX Awards 2022.
The fans are also looking forward to the game, as can be seen from numerous threads on the game’s reddit. So far, there have only been a few betas for the game that you could be lucky to take part in. But now the early access should finally start.
That gives it hit potential, like this early access hit with the potato in its name:
Early Access starts in November – Delayed
Where is the game currently? The game has been running in a closed alpha version since July 10, 2020. Some betas also followed, the last one only on the weekend of October 29, 2022. Apparently, it delivered good results, which is why the start of early access on Steam was announced shortly afterwards.
This starts on November 17th and from then on everyone can play. However, there is no exact price for it yet. So far, access to the beta has cost €24.99, so it is possible that early access will also be in a similar price range.
Why postponed? Incidentally, Frozen Flame was originally supposed to be launched on Steam in the 4th quarter of 2020, but was postponed several times due to the Covid situation and is finally making it.
The game is scheduled to stay in Early Access for about 12 months and then become a full buy2play title, so don’t worry that you’ll just spend your money here for early access and the game will then become Free2Play.
What do you think? Do you think Frozen Flame is more compelling than the survival game Rend, which had a similar approach?
While Rend died in 2020, some games were already affected in 2022. Kritika Online even twice.
