Enter a unique science fantasy MMORPG and dive into a unique organic living world!

A real community

Ryzom is available in German, English, Spanish, French and Russian, and features a great multilingual community that is mature, helpful and friendly. Everyone can talk and roleplay in their own language; therefore, it is not mandatory to speak a foreign language.

Join us to be part of the family!

Freedom: nothing is more valuable!

In Ryzom, there are no classes to choose. Develop all the skills of your character harmoniously or choose to concentrate on one skill and become a master. You are not forced to choose a faction when you create your character. Join a faction during your journeys, or not.

You don't have to fight in PvP, but you can. Join a guild whenever you are ready for it and build up alliances, or just start your adventures alone or with your friends.

Search for the most valuable materials on Atys to create your own unique equipment with which it is easier to defend yourself against your enemies. Hunt the mightiest bosses on Atys. Conquer an outpost and drill materials for your guild.

Do your own thing or make an impact on the politics. Develop your character in the way you want to and start your own story.

It is up to you, to decide what to do. Feel free.

Atys: a living world!

Atys is an enchanting and unique world, formed by the massive growth of vegetation with enormous roots. Populated by intelligent plants, harmless herbivores and fearsome predators; its marvels are matched by its dangers.

Roleplay for the win! It'll blow your mind.

Ryzom offers official interactive events in which live responsive NPCs are involved. As varied as they are regular, their progress and outcome depend on your actions: nothing is preordained!

Would you like to create your own event? The Animation Team is always at your disposal and will gladly support and assist in logistics.

In addition, many guilds are prepared to open their doors to help your character evolve!

For lovers of imaginary languages, the players and Animation Team create unique languages. Roleplay immersion guaranteed!


Picture yourself, in front of a city gate, looking at a far hill and sighting the scouts of a Kitin swarm. Now picture hundreds of Kitins following them, moving like a united and swarming army.

Huge battles call for the cooperation of a great part of the community to counter these threatening invasions. And what if, one day, the Kitin were to win again, threatening hominity for the third time?

Consensual PvP

You can fight everywhere, but only when you wish to do so. Duels, outposts battles, faction or region fights... You are free to engage in them... or abstain!

Advanced forage & harvest

Ryzom features an advanced harvesting and crafting system.

Harvesting - it allows you to dig materials from the ground depending on season and weather and your skill. It's not so simple once predators get involved!

Crafting - Careful combination of materials depending on their characteristics and colors, allows production of unique weapons and armors. Thousands of recipes are possible.

Living Mobs

A powerful A.I. system allows for a realistic wildlife behavior: carnivores attack herbivorous herds, realistic and dynamic animal motions make them lively, sometimes endearing, other times worrisome. There are also mass migrations on season changes and different behavior for different species. Take your time to sit and observe the life around you, it's an unforgettable view. But beware of predators!

Dynamic environments

Ryzom is a 3D persistent world consisting of five lush and varied ecosystems. Landscape, wildlife behavior and ground material availability all change according to season, weather and time.

Discover the beauty of the Forest in the spring, wage war in the Jungle under a stormy summer sky streaked with lightning, lose yourself in the dunes of the Desert in the fall, or relax enjoying the reflections of a winter sun on the pure water of the Lakes.


Ryzom characters are unusual in that they are not bound to a class. That means you don't have to choose between being a warrior, a mage, a harvester or a crafter. You can improve your skills in all these classes with only one character; you do not need to focus on one path. For example, you can, at your leisure, either train your pike handling, put on your magic amplifiers to heal or cast offensive spells, pick up your pickaxe and harvest materials, or go into crafting a new armor or weapon.

You have absolute freedom!

Full character customization

Entirely customizable character appearance upon creation: shape your avatar the way you like it!
