If you ever enjoyed ultima online or runescape than this is the game for you. GvG warfare for territories, you can build shops, farms, and more on territories you conquered or your own personal island/guild's island. Resources and weapons are sorted in tiers and you need to work with a team unless you're used to grinding. The more you focus on something like cooking or being an alchemist, the higher tier you'll be able to make. You aren't limited to how many things you can progress in like most MMOs and imagination is rewarded. You can gank people transporting their bank in certain zones for good money because the bank is global and if you want to move from wherever you spend most of your time you'll have to transport your bank via Ox.
Certain areas have abundances of resources, and typically the more north you go the higher the danger and higher tier resources are found. In yellow zones you'll only lose a % of silver based on what gear your wearing while in red zones you lose everything. PvE consists of dungeons, and hellgates that are red zone instances and can't be solo'd as far as i'm aware. So a very competitive game and there is so much more than i could possibly mention without spending an hour on this post. It's going to be f2p but as for now you have to pay 30 bucks to play the beta which in my opinion was worth every dollar.
