Key Features[edit | edit source]

It's still early for Identity, but we have quite a bit to talk about already and we'll be giving more details on new epic features regularly!

A massive, dynamic world[edit | edit source]

The world in Identity is huge with all sorts of landscapes from large busy cities to small rural towns, farms, forests and more. Set in a fictional region of the United States, you'll find enough variety that there's almost always something new to see.

The environment will be changing often as gangs capture territories, real estate is bought up and crops are grown.

VOIP communication[edit | edit source]

Why are other MMORPGs still using old technologies? While the option to communicate by text will always be there, Identity brings voice-over-IP (Internet) technology to the forefront, allowing you to speak as your character. Anything you say will come from your character in the game world, complete with moving mouth and lips.

That's only the beginning, too! With this you'll find working telephones, radios, megaphones, microphones and more. Communication should be fun!

Vehicles and transportation[edit | edit source]

With such a huge world to live in, you'll need all sorts of vehicles to get around quickly and safely! Vehicles range from common and inexpensive, such as a bicycle, to supercars and luxury yachts for those of you building your empires.

All vehicles are being made with painstakingly realistic physics and high fidelity.

Many vehicles can be considered an investment, too! A large transport truck can earn its value back by running goods, so long as you don't run into bandits. Most vehicles have trunk space to fill up with equipment, resources, drugs, and so on.

Guns and other weapons[edit | edit source]

Like vehicles, weapons in Identity are made to feel and function as close to their real-world counterparts as possible, as is the damage they deal! Firearms aren't easy to come by as a civilian and high-powered rifles are incredibly rare as they require you meet an arms dealer who knows their stuff.

Weapons aren't limited to guns, either. You'll find knives, bats, or even boxing gloves!

Own a piece of the world[edit | edit source]

Every home in the world can be purchased by a player, and apartment buildings can house hundreds of people. A house in the world is unique, and can only have one owner at any given time, while an apartment is always available to those with the cash! Houses and apartments can range from a small studio to a massive penthouse.

New homes are empty and it's up to you to fill it with furniture from stores or crafted by players. Furniture includes useful tools like a television or computer, or something to add a little flair for the party you plan on throwing.

Designers can create furniture in thousands of style combinations making something suited to tastes, or even paint on a canvas to sell or hang on your walls.

Do you want a job or do you want a career?[edit | edit source]

You'll find dozens of jobs as you travel the land. There's never a shortage of work for those willing to put in the effort! Unlike a career, jobs are small tasks that can be completed to earn some cash and they're always available (but not always legal). Examples of jobs include harvesting, fishing, hunting, and so on.

Careers are much more in-depth. Work as a police officer, a firefighter, a freight runner and more. Each career has its own character progression branches and often ranking and specialities as well.

For example, imagine a group of friends has just robbed a small store in your town and they got away before police arrived. As a cop who made it to the detective ranks, it could be up to you to find fingerprints or other evidence.

We all have to make a living, somehow[edit | edit source]

With risk, comes reward. If you can manage to pull off a heist and get away with it, you could find yourself with a lot of quick cash. The problem with crime is that there are those who want to keep the streets clean. Once you're wanted, it might be a matter of time before you find yourself behind bars!

The skilled might also find some easy money at the casino or by playing the lottery.
