The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a new Free-to-Play game from Ubisoft Montreal for the PC that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!
As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players! Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!
Yes, but not exactly. The camera view and controls are similar to what you find in those games, and there also is an RPG-like progression that lets you unlock new skills, weapons and stats as you level up. However, in Mighty Quest, the challenges you face have been created by fellow gamers, and the goal is to stay on top of the competition by looting their castles - but also by making your own castle as hard to defeat as possible.
There currently are four heroes: the Knight, the Archer, the Mage and the Runaway. Each hero has a unique set of skills and weapons that provide distinctive play styles. The Knight is tankier and has a wide assortment of melee skills, the Archer is nimble and can control positioning on the battlefield, the Mage is slow but has powerful area damage, and the Runaway is a mid-range rocker girl with strong attacks and musically-inspired abilities.
Yes, with a name like that there better be! Our random item generator ensures that you’ll find a wide variety of weapons and armor with special abilities, ranging from simple stat boosts to abilities spawning spectral skeletons that fight for you. But the best gear is rare and you’ll need to hunt it down with patience and a bit of luck.
No, castle building is very accessible to all skill levels. At its core, building your defenses consists of simply dropping the creatures and traps of your choice on the castle floor. Of course, that would make for a very rudimentary defense, so there are several tools that help you create a more organized castle, such as setting up how creatures warn each other, or placing trap power supplies in a way that maximizes trap coverage in a specific area.
You have access to a large variety of creatures and traps, and you unlock new ones regularly as you level up. At the start, you can only control lowly Derps and Snotters, but you quickly unlock ridiculously cool creatures such as the necromantic Bone Puppeteer, the visionary Stare Master, or the red hot Explodifier. And let’s not forget elite creatures that cost more defense points, but are correspondingly more powerful. As for traps, you get a full assortment of rotating flames, spiked floors, springboards, explosive mines, and other deadly devices. And for freedom, well, there are a few placement rules, but overall, you are completely free to create whatever defenses you desire. The only condition is that you are able to beat your own castle in a test attack, thus ensuring that players will never face a castle that’s totally impossible to beat.
Oh yes, you’ll have access to bosses; big and chunky pieces of monster mayhem that will test invading heroes to their limits. But which one would you trust to guard your precious treasure? A giant jumping spider with huge claws as legs, or perhaps a hulking undead sorcerer, or even a carnivorous dinosaur queen with her brood? The choice is yours, but be wise about it because you only get to use one boss in your castle.
User Generated Content. Indeed, the Mighty Quest for Epic Loot features UGC in the form of player castles. Every attack is different because each player can build defenses in any way he/she pleases. Some have more traps, others more creatures. Some feature swarms of small creatures, others focus on a few big fights. Some castles are dark and gloomy, whereas others are rich and regal. Possibilities are endless, and you’ll never know what to expect. That’s the beauty of it all. There is as much content as there are players, and this does not even consider the fact that a player may want to change his/her castle many times.
Mighty Quest is a multiplayer game, but it’s asynchronous, meaning that when you attack a castle, the defending player is not actively defending. Traps and creatures do the job by themselves. This implies that you don’t need to wait for anyone to play the game; you can enjoy Mighty Quest at any time during your day. There will always be new castles to attack and new defensive tweaks to be done. Additionally, you can leave messages to anyone, you can build a friends list to keep tab of their achievements and activities, and you can talk to other players live through the chat. Last but not least, you can watch video replays of the players that attack your castle. You’ll be maniacally laughing when you see them fall to your devious defenses or inadvertently step on that well-hidden springboard … for the second time.
Yes indeed, you’ve knocked on the right door. In addition to the fun you’ll get out of besting other players, both as an attacker and as a defender, MQ offers a competitive league system. If you are skilled, you’ll rise in the leaderboards and be in prime contention for fame and rewards. There is also a weekly competition on predetermined castles that elite players try to beat with the best time.
Yes you can. You can dress your hero using special costumes, or you can have him/her be followed by a cute and funny pet of your choice. As for your castle, you can choose among a range of skins, such as royal or gloomy.
No, not at all. There are many different real money purchases that can be done, mostly for customization, convenience or speeding up progression, but none of them has an impact on how strong your character or your castle is. Please refer to the Shop FAQ for more information on monetization options.
