The 8-bit Studios team are developing a "MOV" multiplayer online versus game free-to-play for PC's, next-gen consoles, smartphones and tablets. Similar to versus games out on the market-think Tekken or Street Fighter-our combat system is based on the skills and reflexes of each player, utilizing a system of combos. However, the action is in third person and may include up to 16 players at a time! All combat will be live action, online in battle arenas where the way players handle their characters will be the key to their success!
In Skara, we do not let characters improve by levels, making them effectively invincible. In other words, a novice player has the same chance of killing a veteran player, just like in versus fighting games. The only difference is marked by the reflexes and experience of each player in battle.

The price to play Skara has dropped 50%! You can now jump into the arena to try our next-gen competitive Hack'n'Slash for $9.99!

With a much more stable build and new features to enjoy, the time to join Skara has never been better. And we need player feedback now more than ever: LOTS of it!

So in return for joining Skara in Early Access, we are offering VIP treatment and
some exclusive items, including:
• Your money back as in-game currency once the game goes F2P
• Exclusive Limited Edition Weapon and Shield
• Limited Edition in-game Avatar

Preparations are underway for another update Monday, 22 December, so keep an eye on the blog for a more detailed account of additions and changes coming to the game.
Meanwhile, enjoy our latest gameplay video, featuring new Celean heavy armor and vote for us! :)

An MMO where you actually need skill instead of Character levels? Might be the first MMO after Ultima Online i am going to play!

Hmm, not the first. There are others out there, like Vindictus. Sadly apart from the towns, there's only Instance Dungeons and Raids (up to 24 people).
This game looks good and I'd love to see more Action-MMORPG's, I really fancy an open world though.

Well we are not an MMO, 16 players is not that massively that's why we like to call us a MOV (multiplayer online versus) game!
