Mortal Online lanserades 9 juni 2010 med fokus på en öppnare och friare sandbox-spelvärld. Spelet har inget traditionellt levelsystem utan skickligheten baseras istället direkt på färdigheter och grundegenskaper. Spelvärlden har en traditionell fantasymix med en orc/människohybrid, fem mänskliga, två alvliknande och två dvärgliknande spelbara raser.
