The deadly sins in Faxion Online
UTV True Games revealed today the details behind the seven deadly sins (zones) in Faxion Online. Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Lust, Pride, Gluttony and Greed make up the seven zones of this unique and addictive new MMOPRG, which goes into Closed Beta later this month. Players will choose to fight for the armies of Heaven or Hell, and battle for the fate of the living world and the souls that still reside in it! Beyond Limbo, each zone of the game represents one of the seven deadly sins and control of a particular zone by one of the two ”factions” determines the nature of that sin on a sliding scale from positive (generous) to negative (selfish).
From petty jealousies to consuming obsessions, the Misfortune Woods are
home to the covetous and brutal Jade Hand. The Blighted Cathedral,
incessantly besieged by weaponry and constantly worn by evil, stands in
defiance of the land’s denizens to guard ancient treasures and to serve
as the manifestation of the harsh standards by which one creature judges
A testament to the greatest folly of humankind, the Penitent Wastes play
host, jailor and undertaker to all types of beings blinded and bound by
their own rage. A home to both the vengeful and those seeking to end
the violence, the great torn battlefields and rivers of blood are filled
daily with the wrathful, the wicked and the well-intentioned.
Alas, the grim quagmires of the Shadow Delta are too often the last new
image to enter the minds of its new residents. Sick with its own
passive, mind-numbing form of desperation and the longing of all things
unrequited, the astounding power of its sullen silence is every bit as
traumatizing as the battles that rage on elsewhere in Limbo.
Pleasures of the flesh abound in the Garden of Ardor, where many have
been led astray by raw desire – some more lost than others. Unfulfilled
souls wandering the garden’s hedge maze endlessly seek out the embrace
of others longing for the contentment they will never find. The objects
of these affections often fair poorly against such aggressive passion
but find it difficult to protest while their tongue is pinned from yet
another unrelenting kiss.
Those who populate the Ascedia Peaks region believe they are the very
best at everything they do and they are certain the world needs to know.
Home to a tower already reaching dizzying heights, every builder here
has a grand plan for improving this monument to arrogance and is willing
to act as cut-throat as necessary to ensure that it is their vision
which comes to pass and not the mundane day-dream of some common
To the north of Purgatory City lies the high grass plains of the Fields
of Hunger where workers tirelessly harvest crops and prepare food for
their gluttonous, never-satisfied master. That which is not consumed is
hauled off to rot in the great landfill where even baser creatures begin
their feast. These eternally starving wretches fight over discarded,
partially-eaten scraps having long-ago shed the last of their humanity.
The mines of Avarice Canyons are operated by twisted wretches known as
Misers; the most depraved of the souls who have abandoned everything but
their desire for material things. Never satisfied with what they find,
they tirelessly dig only to lose more of themselves with every bauble
they unearth. When any prospector accumulates enough wealth to draw
attention, a brief but intense struggle ensues, the result of which is
an ever-expanding treasure trove sure to attract still more thieves.
“The lore of the seven deadly sins is the crux of the battle
between Heaven and Hell, so it was a no brainer that Faxion’s settings
literally BE the sins themselves,” said Frank Lucero, Studio Head at UTV
True Games. “These zones offer all of the competitive combat play that
players desire including PVP, innovative territory control and an
ability ranking system that will keep players engaged in the timeless
struggle of good vs. evil.”
