FACTIONS: Origins of Malu
  • Game FACTIONS: Origins of Malu is unavailable in current region.

Origins of Malu is a open world sandbox with a strong focus on strategy / skill and freedom to build and play how you want to play. Factions is the a testing component developed for Early Access to allow our community to get in and provide feedback on our system while we bring the MMO to full life.


Large immersive world to explore and to conquer

Fast paced FPS inspired combat; there is not Tab targeting here and we are firm believers that skill not gear should determine the battle

Physics based destructibles- You can destroy walls, rocks and lots of other things

Extensive open skill system- the ability to fine tune your customized build incrementally and extensively

Intelligent AI- world bosses learn and improve after every battle

Open world Building

Multiple battleground style game modes

Customizable characters

Intense PVP combat experience

The following is the step by step plan by which we intend to bring the world of Malu to life according to the full vision which has driven its creation. Once we pass Steam Greenlight (with your help), we will release an early access version of the instanced battlegrounds as soon as possible. All resources derived from this will go towards refining and developing the game further, with the eventual goal of creating a full size open world MMO. To this end we have created a public roadmap of our planned development at

The purpose of this is to collect feedback on features and to give our community an understanding of our master plan, as well as the ability to influence and prioritize our development effort.


Our first phase will be the creation of a battleground game with a focus on combat and basic gameplay. it is our goal to make this is as tight as possible before we concern ourselves with other features.

All 3 races 9Qulinta, Toljon, Jolah) playable

All tier (1) skills of each race

Dynamic changing abilities

Controllable structures such as cannon and artillery

Leaderboards and combat staticians

Tournament system

Capture the Chochobi
- This is a new twist on an old favorite - capture the flag, but with space chickens! The goal of the game is to find the chochobi on the map and bring him back to your base. But be careful! He will twist and squirm and try to wriggle out of your grasp. You can try and run him home, or you can pass him to your teammates rugby style. We previewed this gameplay at PAX Prime 2012 with Alienware and it was very well received.

- Coordinate with your team to capture the entire map! Distributed throughout the terrain are various faction nodes. The goal is to destroy the opposing team's nodes, allowing them to respawn as your own. This game style will include a series of power-ups, mini goals, and other fun surprises we have in store for you.

Those who support us in phase 1 of this project will receive special consideration when when we launch phases 2 & 3. More details forthcoming!

Orbiting a dying star in a forgotten solar system, the red, iron rich planet of Malu teems with life. Near the equator, on one of the few land masses, lies a colossal pillar that ignites the sky with energy. Every living thing feeds from this in one form or another. Crystalline orbs grow in trees and brush to collect energy which gets consumed by the strange and exotic beasts that stalk the crimson plains and yet there is a small moon thats fills the skyline of Zeta a smaller less refined planet that was a staging group of development thousands of years ago.

The unknown race of beings that created Malu had used Zeta as a staging ground for the creatures and races that would inherit Malu as their own. Forced in combat to test each races capabilities and weakness the inhabitants of Zeta are at the will and mercy of the ones who control the strings. There experiments that took place utilized great power that would resonate and shift time and space and sometimes opening portals to different times.
