Whenever I hear any news on Moonlight Online I let out a super girly squeal of joy and I bounce around in my seat like a giddy 6-year-old. I love me some video games, particularly vampire games and MMORPGs (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game), and since Moonlight Online is both a vampire game and an MMORPG I am all kinds of excited.
Moonlight Online has been in the making for the past three years now and it’s going to be huge. It’s not another simple browser game or a silly iPhone app, it’s an actual big and badass game with loads of players all going at it against one another. As an ex World of Warcraft addict I am in need of a new MMO to keep me entertained, and what better than a vampire one.
The game isn’t complete yet, but some fantastic screenshots have been released (see below) and it is in pre-alpha testing right now. So it’s taking a step closer to coming to gamers everywhere.
From the Moonlight Online website:
“Stalk the dark streets of forbidding cities in Moonlight Online, IGG’s first vampire-themed 3D MMORPG! Race down dank alleys and leap from building to building using superhuman acrobatic abilities that enable parkour-style stunts in real-time combat.
Become immersed in moving tales of forbidden love and epic heroism as you explore a supernatural world filled with frightening creatures. Choose from among the 3 supernatural races and take sides in a centuries-old feud.
Let the Vampires take a bite and feel the life drain away, replaced with…a hunger. Run with the Werewolves and feel the true strength and fury of the wild! Or retain some semblance of humanity and remain human, forever on guard against the evils of the night.
Whatever you choose, know that there is no turning back…”

Here’s more info on the gameplay:
Three Awesome Races
As the little description above says, there are three races – human, vampire and werewolf. Each race has its own terrains, each have their own distinct traits and unique strengths.
Vampires possess superhuman strength and agility in immortal bodies that house their undead souls. Their incredible reflexes give them exceptional dodging abilities that enable them to avoid many physical and spell attacks.
Werewolves possess incredible stamina, making them one of most tenacious of the three races. Their astounding speed and leaping abilities permit them to scale heights and descend pits that others wouldn’t be able to reach. With a fierce bond to nature, they are unsurpassed when it comes to harnessing forces of nature.
Only humans have been blessed with the gift of healing. Skilled with great intelligence and courage, they continue to persevere in the face of every challenge. Pushing their talents to their limits, they have established many schools to train their champions in the arts of might and magic.
Riveting Quests & Moving Tales
A comprehensive newbie quest guide will familiarize gamers with the gamesuper quickly. After that, all that’s left is immersing yourselves in the rich storylines of Moonlight Online. There are large quests, as well as small side quests.
Soul Equipment System
A character’s weapon is his or her greatest tool in Moonlight Online. Every weapon has a soul that can be awakened by the Soul Cleric. Once a weapon’s soul is stirred, it will grow along with its owner, lending its unique spirit powers to the character. When the user kills a monster they will naturally earn experience and pick up loot drops, but their soul-awakened weapon will also take something from the battle, drawing upon the creature’s spirit powers. With the help of the Soul Cleric, these mysterious spirit powers stored deep within a weapon can be harnessed to grant a character amazing stat boosts and new skills.
Looks and sounds SO awesome! I can’t wait! I will do a happy lil’ nerdy dance when this game is released.
