    Pagan Online is very interesting hack ’n’ slash twin-stick ARPG, based on Slavic mythology, that is bravely trying to implement some new, more casual but fun experience into the genre. Aside from its bugs and few balancing problems, it has great potential and it is already managing to separate itself from the big competitors in the genre.

    Pagan Online is a Diablo-like hack-and-slash RPG with an alright story. The gameplay is enjoyable, but it's lacking in other regards such as shops, an open world, and so on. It's a nice cheaper alternative to Diablo if you don't mind the lack of depth.

    Slavic pagan mythology is a welcome addition to otherwise stale fantasy scene, but weird campaign structure and emphasis on grind keep messing with immersion. [Issue#240, p.35]

    Pagan Online seems to have gone through development hell — whatever its original concept was, the game has been rewritten, cut into pieces and then reassembled in a different form. Its short f2p-style runs are fun at first, but then boredom gradually sets in, because it’s just rinse and repeat.

    Pagan Online makes an attempt to dovetail two different genres—the ARPG and the MOBA—with mixed results. While the different heroes each have interesting abilities and character designs, the game is bogged down by an unfortunate series of grindy, free-to-play mechanics inexplicably built into a buy-to-play game.

    Pagan Online’s Slavic fantasy pulls from mythologies that are slightly off the beaten path, but so much of the game feels like familiar — and what’s worse, less successful — tropes, mechanics and ideas gleaned from other ARPGs, MOBAs and mobile games. It does have the advantage of presenting relatively short and fast-paced missions to the time-pressed player, but I suspect fans of action RPGs would prefer a more creative, immersive and less repetitive experience to one that is just abbreviated.

    Inexperienced developers tried their hand on a Diablo-like RPG but they failed to understand what makes the genre so popular. Pagan Online is full of restrictions, locked content, reused maps and terrible loot.

    First off the game uses WASD controls, I like it. Many good ideas and different characters. It`s a good solid ARPG.

    The game is currently still in Early Access but I was lucky enough to be able to play the release version at gamescom this week and the story continues to be exciting - the development team has been extremely reactive to player feedback on Discord (btw one of the largest and most interactive Discord experience I had with any game developer) and through other channels.

    Looking very much forward to the games release next week.

    Fun ARPG, different type of controls, WASD and Mouse is primary mode but click to move is still supported. Challenging session based gameplay.Fun ARPG, different type of controls, WASD and Mouse is primary mode but click to move is still supported. Challenging session based gameplay. Can make progress with out spending tons of time. Fun narrative design and engaging characters to play. I never played an ARPG with so many different types of characters! Some look and feel better than others but overall this is a really cool way to play an ARPG. Worth checking out for avid PoE / Diablo fans. Expand

    You get to pick from 3 characters in the beginning but the rest is locked behind a wall. You need these shards to unlock new characters and the shards are currently obtained but doing missions, so no paywall.
    The graphics is very world of warcraft ish, and in my opinion not very 2019, but you either like it or you dont.
    Theres a single player campaign that currently takes you to Act 5. Getting to act 5 is possible to do in two days and even faster if you know what your doing.
    The game will have pets, and you won't get shown new gear you equip other than your main weapon. You will have to unlock skins to be able to look different. The same goes with pets, and even your banner logo.
    This in all ways looks like they will implement microtransactions, and looking at other wargaming titles, it would surprise me this title would not have it, especially when the chosen way to obtain things are they way they are.

    There is no actual world to explore, like in diablo or poe or whatever - there is a hub and a portal from which you go to missions (small rooms with bosses to fight or a some kind of a road to get you from point A to point B and then get back to hub).

    So mobile-looking game without a world to explore calling itself arpg? no ty

Soon, it is strippedGame starts nice and has many good ideas from other games (Diablo, Warframe, PoE) and it is inspired by Slavic mythology. Soon, it is stripped from majority of Slavic mythology and has many limitations (party can have only 2 members which might bug out your inventory and loose your loot). Some players can not even connect to their servers. Campaign has passable story with huge absurd difficulty spike at the end. Pass this title. Expand
