The World FORCE:ERA was designed to go back to The World's roots and be more closely based on Emma Wielant's story The Epitaph of Twilight. The game ended it´s service in 2030 despite it´s great popularity, in favour of it´s portable succesor: The World: Armed Conflict.
"The World" we've come to love is actually named "Alba"; a sprawling floating landmass encompassing the Lost Grounds, Root Towns, and fields, with a gargantuan "Goddess Statue" at its center. There are 34 classes, including base classes, special classes, and progression options. Guilds roam the land and do battle with powerful airships.
