Riders of Icarus is an upcoming action-adventure MMORPG that focuses on the taming and riding of a myriad of wild and legendary beasts - think dragons, bears, even chickens. Yes, that legendary.. After choosing a class, and taming a mount of your choice, players are then free to participate in an assortment of cooperative and competitive play atop their steed.
Mounted combat is the main draw of Riders of Icarus, in particular the aerial combat system, with some of the game’s colossal bosses only approachable from the skies. Riders of Icarus contains hundreds of creatures to collect, tame and train, with the full Korean version giving you the option to create tiny and adorable pet versions of any beasties that you no longer used but wanted to keep, so here’s hoping that it appears in the Western version.
