GDC 2011: New Iris Online videos show off mounts, classes

If you've been following the adorably epic Iris Online, you'll know that the game has had its share of exciting developments over the last few months. Furthering that theme, members of the gPotato team sat down with Massively to show off some new cool videos at this week's GDC 2011!

One video shows off the three races and 15 classes you can find in the game as well as gives a look at the tarot card system. Players will hunt after and gather a collection of cards that, once completed, can be used to buff the player and even predict the future! Forget the Magic 8-Ball -- tarot cards rule.

The second video details mounts -- a lot of new mounts. Want to ride a motorcyle or polar bear? Iris has them. There are also some new dungeons and epic bosses, a ton of beautiful detailed landscapes, and a look at a system that allows players to transform into actual monsters, enabling them to fight as those monsters or to sneak past aggro. You will also be able to see PvP battles like capture-the-flag, PvP zones that players will fight their way through, and even a bout of friendly dueling.

Now, what are you waiting for? Click past the cut and watch!
