Four distinct humanoid races, or 'homins', came to exist on Atys hundreds of years prior to the game's current timeline (although it is not specified how or why!) These races developed into separate and fairly isolated societies, inside their own favored ecosystem. Interacting benevolently with all four homin cultures, but hostile towards each other, were two far more advanced races: the Kami, the legendary magical spirits of the earth, and the Karavan, the techno warriors from outer space. The Kami are depicted as elusive, chaotic, playful, and highly protective of Atys, while the Karavan are more secretive and have never been shown outside their protective suits or far from their machinery.

In the game year 2481, the homin races were nearly exterminated when the hostile and horrific mutated insect-like Kitins were accidentally released from their home deep within Atys' roots. The surviving homin refugees began working together in 2485 to rebuild a single, mixed society in relatively remote areas. Soon after that came the additional threat of the 'Goo', a spreading infestation that renders areas uninhabitable and drives wildlife mad with rage.

Come and discover the hidden mysteries of this world. But be careful; your choices will impact not only you, but the world of Ryzom as well!

A unique virtual MMORPG world

Planet Atys is not only an MMORPG, but also a living, virtual world, with five rich and diverse ecosystems. A powerful AI technology makes flora and fauna interact dynamically with each other and the ever-changing environment.

MMORPG based on Freedom

Choose and fully customize a role-play or RPG character from any of the four races of our MMORPG. The skill-based action tree then allows you to gain experience in fighting, magic, crafting and/or foraging, and to fully customize your spells and special attacks (There are thousands of possible combinations!).

Role-play oriented

Your role-play actions influence the story line of our MMORPG. Lots of large-scale Role-Play and RPG events are organized around players’ wishes.

Multiplayer Consensual PvP

Different types of PvP combat coexist in our MMORPG, and since not everyone likes PvP in an MMORPG, you can choose whether or not to get involved. If you are looking to engage in multiplayer combat, the game offers various possibilities: Duels, GvG, FvF and full PvP.

Strong Role-play & RPG Community

Available in English, French and German, our MMORPG Ryzom enjoys a strong, friendly and mature role-play and RPG Community. The communication between developers and players is an essential component of the unceasing improvement work of our MMORPG.
