Human survival is but a very important concern for all of us. Thankfully, we’re no longer in the days that we have to hunt and gather the resources that we need because modern technology makes that task almost non-existent. At one time, however, our race had to work hard real hard to survive and make a living in this harsh world.
If you’re looking to simulate the early days of our civilizations, then you’re pretty much going to be at home with Haven and Hearth. This is a survival MMO that you can play for free; you only need to update your Java to the latest version in order to run the game in your computer.
This is not your usual game in which things progress quickly. You’d have to wait and work hard in order to achieve a few things. The grind may appear tedious to most gamers who play the game for the first time; however, if you stick around long enough, you’ll find that there are a lot of things you could actually enjoy from the game.
The Kinship system is worth noting. This is the game’s equivalent of a guild or clan that is prevalent amongst other MMOs. Because the game’s theme is more of survival, forming Kinships is vital if you want to create a settlement up from scratch – you’d need the help of your Kin in order to effectively distribute workload and utilize skills.
The skill trees here in Haven and Hearth are one of the factors that you could customize. You could pick what skills you will want to learn, and this will affect the kind of tasks that you will be doing throughout the entirety of your stay in the game’s world. There is no opportunity to be a “jack of all trades” here in the game; it takes a lot of time and Learning Points to progress in one specialty, so you’re bound to focus all your energies into that.
There are opportunities for combat here, but only when if another player attempts to steal stuff from your settlement. However, because each character is bound to be specializing in one thing, combat may be dragging and difficult for both parties. You’d have to develop enough skills for that.
Constructing things is one of the main jobs you’ll be busy with here in this survival MMO. To build, you’d have to be equipped with the right skills and the right amount of resources. Resources are gathered from the wild, but it’s going to be challenging. When you see your jobs getting finished, however, you’ll want to give yourself a pat on the back for all that hard work.
The game also has a very supportive community through its official forums, through which you can form relationships with other players that can lead to kinships. You could also find information on how to navigate the game, and other useful tips, from the game’s forums.
