Players will find themselves wake up in an unknown beach in the mysterious land of Autis, with a blank mind and a bare hand. Before the retrival of the lost memories comes the urgent survival in this split world full of factional conflict and roaming hostile creatures.
Marked by the Greek mythology, Troy Online enriches its gameplay with many a familiar character and creature out of it, such as the Crete Labyrinth trapped the children-devouring Minotaur and fighting heroes like Hector, Achilles and Amozons, all serving in-game NPCs.
Besides the grand, mythological back story, various supporting systems featuring equipment crafting, collectable items and armor combinations have done their bits to make an in-depth and diversified MMO. And instant dungeon groups or varied guilds allow for cooperative party play. Yet on the top, it is the wide range of battlefields and PvP settings that outweigh as the core play.
In-game PvP mode varies from one to another by combat objectives and tiered levels, which offers different gaming experience for players with different minds.

Different as each surely should be, the character development is criticized by some players for its soft features and silly animation.
