Valorbound is a full-loot, sandbox, PvEvP, horizontal progression, MMO-lite (pheww..) set in a highly stylized mid-fantasy setting. With more believable restraints on character power, Valorbound focuses on the smaller scale and more down to earth adventures. Do your best to survive in a wild world full of Elves, Goblins and magic, and live the fantasy life you've dreamed of.

Experience Ursera’s untamed wilds on exciting adventures, solo or with friends. Help the townsfolk, slay brutal bosses, struggle to survive, and make a name for yourself as you profit on hordes of valuable loot and compete toward seasonal rankings.

​Have you ever been in the penultimate moments of your adventure, final quest objective in sight, only to be ganked and camped by a massive blob of murder hobos? Valorbound’s “Focused World” zones give exhilarating challenges without the uncapped grief of an uncontrolled open world. Just think of it as using the fast travel options of an open world, except your destinations aren’t limited to “overcrowded” or “I’m the only one here”. 

 

With our Focused World approach, we can control player density and the experience that each zone delivers giving players a more honest and grounded PvP experience.

For us, horizontal progression means the outcome of a fight is more influenced by skillful outplays than mindless hours of time. With the gear treadmill removed, players can focus more on the actual gameplay, instead of just the reward. 

 

​Every zone is always relevant. Valorbound’s evergreen content means we give the player top-tier immersive design around every corner. All of our content, secrets, routes, and map knowledge is meaningful for the entire lifetime of your play.

 

Over 20 classes are waiting to be unlocked through completing questlines, buckets of achievements and trophies to fill your guild house, and regardless of the number of quests, tasks cleared, or hours played, horizontal progression  means you will always be able to party up with your friends and guildmates in a meaningful way, without leaving anyone behind.

As vital members of the Adventurer’s Guild, your job is to scour Ursera for valuables and magic items. Equipment comes in multiple tiers but uses a wide range of socketable options instead of random stat rolls to keep things varied. No more hunting for the "perfectly rolled" version of an item amongst the trash. Combine this with our simplified equipment slot count and the re-gearing process is stress free, getting you right back to putting goblins in the ground and gold in your pockets.

 

Your raw strength in combat is determined by your gear, and how you leverage that gear is determined by your skill as a player. We urge you to step off the treadmill, and focus on the adventure, bigger numbers doesn’t mean bigger fun. 

 

In the dynamic player-driven market of Ursera, all items retain their value. Nothing is soulbound, and players are always looking for gear across the pricing spectrum meaning there are endless ways to make a profit.

There are some questions that we do get often, so let us address those for you :

  • ​Can I play multiple characters?
    In Valorbound there's no need to have an alt.. All of your classes can be swapped freely, and players receive "preset" configs for cosmetics, race, and class/skills, to make swapping around even easier than logging out, and logging back in on an alt.

  • Is Valorbound an Open World game?
    No. But with our Focused World we feel you wont be missing that much after you spend some time in Ursera. Our design choices put making you feel like you're in a living place, at the forefront of the experience.

  • What do I have to buy?
    Valorbound is an egalitarian world. No pay to win garbage, no pay for convenience, and no purchased loot boxes. Purchase Valorbound once then optional seasonal passes if you want to unlock additional cosmetic rewards.

  • But I don't want players to take my awesome look?
    Character expression is VERY important. Whether you lost your gear to death or durability, no need to worry. Your cosmetics are separate and cannot be lost or looted.
