Lords Online is a free to play MMORTS empire building game playable inside your favourite web browser. The genre is becoming ever more popular and Lords Online is certainly one of the better offerings. Lords Online combines the resource management and city development from RTS games with traditional RPG concepts as the player develops Heroes to lead their troops, assigning attributes and gaining new items and armor for them to equip and new abilities for them to use in battle. Featuring a clean and simple interface and some well crafted graphics, Lords Online is certainly pleasing to the eye and offers some pretty immersive gameplay too, making it stand out from other MMO for Mac games.
Lords Online offers three playable races, each with their own strengths and weaknesses; Human, Shaba and Alec, all with the shared goal of eradicating the infamous Beards and restoring peace to the continent of Mu. The player begins the game as the Lord of a small town, with the aim of building the town into a great city and developing an army capable of defeating other players and capturing their cities. The Hero development side of this MMO for Mac adds some complexity and gives players the freedom to experiment and find a play-style that works for them. At the same time, the game is easy enough to pick up quickly and can be played as a casual game slotted in whenever the player has a spare few minutes.
Joining in is simple and takes no time at all, just create a free account on the game’s website and start playing instantly. The game does offer purchase of in-game items for real money but only to provide the player with a customization options and no advantage in game-play, but as with other free-to-play MMORTS games around the web this isn’t necessary in order to play and have fun.
