How will PvP Work in Throne and Liberty?

Here's how the PvP will work in NCSoft's upcoming 2023 MMORPG Throne of Liberty.

How will PvP Work in Throne and Liberty?

Throne and Liberty, developed by NCSoft, is one of the most anticipated MMOs expected to release in 2023. 

As with most MMOs that choose to include a mixture of PvE and PvP content, the developers of Throne and Liberty must attempt to find the correct balance for all of its players, as it's inevitable that some players won't want to do any PvP at all, while others prefer to focus their efforts primarily on fighting against other players. And of course many players will fit somewhere in between these two categories.

In the recent Director's Preview released by NCSoft, Game Design Director Lee Moon Seop talked about how PvP will function in Throne and Liberty. 

The majority of the game's world will be considered a "safe zone" at any given time, meaning that no PvP occurs there. However, each area in the game will have a schedule of events that take place, which all players in the area can view. Some of these events will cause a PvP competition to begin in the area, and players can go there to participate, competing against other players to increase their rank in the competition.

The developers didn't give us any specifics about the kinds of rewards you'll be able to earn from these events, however they were keen to emphasize that this system should ensure that players don't find themselves stuck in a PvP situation without wanting to be there. It seems there are no PvP only zones, so if there's something you want or need to check out in an area that currently has a PvP event ongoing, you can just return there a little later on if you don't want to get caught up fighting other players.

There will also be Guild wars in Throne and Liberty. Powerful relics known as Possession Stones will be up for grabs in these battles, and acquiring them will unlock enhanced guild capabilities and procurement of important materials for the guild. 

The Director's Preview video showed off some pretty large battles between players when they were speaking about the Guild wars, so fans of large PvP battlefields in MMORPGs might want to keep an eye on Throne and Liberty.
