Faxion Online Overview

Faxion Online was a free-to-play 3D MMORPG set in Limbo of the Christian religion, torn by war between Heaven and Hell. Players created their characters as either a denizen of Heaven or Hell, choosing their classes accordingly—each side had their own faction-specific version of Fighter, Mage and Healer. Players proceed through the game in locations themed for the seven deadly sins, such as the Fields of Hunger (Gluttony) and the Garden of Ardor (Lust) which must be fought over to control the territory in PvP-oriented fashion, where the dominant faction earns the right to open exclusive vendors that sell special items to the reigning faction. One unique feature of the game was its usage of multi-classing, a feature found in few other MMORPGs such as Rift and Final Fantasy XIV. Its limitation is through its available skill points, that can be spent in whatever other class you desire on top of the base skills offered from your first class. Another unique offering of the game is its offline queue system that offers players a chance to grow their characters while away from the game, allowing them to play the more fun parts of the game and avoid the grinding.

Faxion Online Key Features:

  • Heaven or Hell? – Choose between the legions of Heaven or Hell to fight for, and access unique classes.
  • Six Playable Classes – Pick from Crusaders, Diviners, Guardians, Reavers, Occultists and Zealots, depending on your faction.

  • Control Territory – Quest through Limbo and visit areas inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins, taking control of the territories in the name of your faction for special vendors.

One comment

  • I remember being hyped for this one when it was first announced. I was one of the earliest players, but it didnt really impress. The developer was also behind mytheon, an original concept for ultimately there was no market for their games. The whole studio was shut down after their parent company was bought out by Disney I believe.
