The shared open-world sci-fi land of Aida will soon be available to adventurers around the globe! The official Tower of Fantasy Twitter account proudly announced that the game would launch on August 10, at 5:00 PM PDT or 8:00 PM EDT.

Tower of Fantasy is a sci-fi action RPG similar in many ways to Genshin Impact. The title has many similarities, most notably the art style, but it brings its own unique features to the table. For example, this game has an in-game lore-friendly reason to collect multiple characters.

Global Release Countdown

Players (or Wanderers, as they’re called in-game) collect weapons by purchasing them with special currencies at the Simulacrum. The weapons come pre-installed with “Simulacra”, which are basically AI versions of ancient heroes of the past. This gives the weapons a bit of personality. The player can swap into the Simulacra’s form when equipping their corresponding weapon.

Players will have tons of options in terms of Simulacra, each with its own distinct looks, playstyles, weapons, and personalities. We will have the likes of a highly robotic Nemesis, to a Diluc-styled King (who uses a scythe instead of a greatsword).

What Else is Unique about the Tower of Fantasy?

Tower of Fantasy is obviously inspired by Genshin Impact. But like we stated earlier, it is still its own game. Another example is that traversal in Tower of Fantasy won’t be as limited in this game. Due to its Sci-Fi nature, players will have access to some highly advanced tech that will allow them to traverse the planet of Aida with ease.

Some of the cooler vehicles include a personal jetpack which allows you to freely fly through the environment. This should be liberating, and quite welcome to players of World of Warcraft or Guild Wars 2 that love their flying mounts.

Players will also have access to a cool motorcycle, a mechanical horse, and robotic legs, to name a few.

A Personal Fantasy

Tower of Fantasy also boasts its own in-depth character creator, something that wasn’t available at all in Genshin Impact. Instead of needing to choose between just two looks, like the Traveler, you can truly create your own sci-fi space hero/heroine.

Fine-Tune Your Character

Players can fully customize their Wanderer with many options, such as body type, outfits, colors, and hair layering.

Tower of Fantasy Pre-Registrations

Previously, the game opened up Pre-Registration around early July of 2022. In less than a month, the game was able to attract over 3 million users across all available platforms (PC, Android, or iOS – no consoles as of yet!).

Tower of Fantasy Pre-Registrations

Like a lot of online games, Tower of Fantasy planned to give out in-game bonuses for all players based on the number of pre-registrations. Because the game was able to break its highest planned tier (2.5 million pre-registrations), they added a 6th tier of rewards for all players. Here’s the new breakdown:

  • 500,000 players: Astra Frame x1, Black Nucleus X2, Wholegrain Bread X10, Gold x2888.
  • 1 million players: Limited Title x1, Black Nucleus X3, Fried Chicken X10, Weapon Battery III X4
  • 1.5 million players: Gold Nucleus X3, Exclusive Avatar x1, Sizzling Meat X10, Gold x3888
  • 2 million players: Jetpack Paint: Orion x1, Gold Nucleus X3, Crispy Grilled Fish x10, Weapon battery III X4
  • 2.5 million players: Outfit: Star Sand X1, Gold Nucleus X4, Nut Tea X10, Gold X6888.
  • 3 million players: Dark Crystal x500, Black Nucleus x5, Caterpillar Fungus Noodles x10 (that sounds nasty), Beauty Restore Voucher x1

One note on the “Exclusive Avatar” in the 3rd tier: this reward will depend entirely on the platform that a player claims the rewards on. PC players will get Zeke, Android will have Shirli, and iOS will receive Nemesis.

The presence of a “Beauty Restore Voucher” seems to give off the impression that the character customization might be limited to only if you have one of these items available in your inventory.
