FAQ
What is AnSiber?

Ancient Siberia (or AnSiber in short) is a survival massive multiplayer rpg with sandbox elements. It’s mostly player-driven: you yourself fill in the world around you by taking part in a great number of activities, whether it’s exploring the huge map in search of adventures, hunting various beasts, battling countess foes or establishing your own in-game business. A balanced skill system will help you with that, whether you decide to be the greatest carpenter or a legendary horse-tamer.

Who’s developing the game? Is it worth buying?

The game is developed by VALGA Games. Whether to buy it or not, depends solely on you. If you like the genre, want to try out our new features and have early access to the game, then yes, it’s worth a try.

What’s already been done?

The game is in Pre-Alpha stage now. There is a working prototype which is constantly tweaked and modified: new features and content are being added, some aspects – optimized, while the others – removed. You may find out the details on our News page.

What is the game’s PvP like?

Ancient Siberia has a non-target battle system – it concerns both traditional weapons and magic. You were just passing by when suddenly hit by a fireball? Executed your power-attack too long and the enemy dodged? Well, tough luck, friend, things like this happen. It’s not the strongest one who wins, but the most skillful.

When is the game being released? Will it have subscription?

The release date is still to be announced. There will be early access builds, probably, even starter packs with various content. The microtransaction system is not implied in the game and is in no future plans so far.
