Ready to feel old? It’s been 20 years since the action roleplaying game Nox released on computers. Yes, two decades!

Think about how much has changed in that time. We didn’t have iPhones, people were actually nice to each other on the internet (for the most part), and only about 360 million of us had internet.

Even so, Nox holds up today as a classic action/RPG hybrid with an engaging story and fun gameplay. If action RPGs are your style, definitely keep reading to learn more about Nox and other similar games that have released throughout the years.

Looking back at Nox

Developed by Westwood Pacific, Nox introduced players to a high fantasy parallel universe where you could choose between three unique classes and, in turn, stories. Its three different stories helped the title stand out, as did the title’s unique fog-of-war system called TrueSight. To this day, games are still using variations of the same system!

Framed as one of the most anticipated games at E3 in 1999, it was well-received by critics and gamers alike. It even got a free update in August 2000 that introduced multiplayer.

Nox helped define 20 years of hack’n’slash action RPGs

Even today, we still see elements that were introduced or improved upon in games like Nox and the original Diablo. To this day, these games have stood the test of time and continue to evolve and become bigger in scope than ever before. People love action RPGs and hack’n’slash titles so we thought it would be fun to look at some of the great offerings in the genre to help celebrate Nox’s 20th anniversary.
