Old-school massively multiplayer RPG set in a world of crime, cash and clans.

You are now entering Torn City; a dark and dirty metropolis inhabited by two million real people involved in crime, conquest, commerce and more. In this open-world, role-playing crime game you can be whoever you want, be it Bully, Businessman or Barbarian, so long as you’ve got the brains and bullets to back it up.

Torn City is so gritty and real that British Prime Minister Theresa May's staff used this game to learn about real criminal behaviour. Don't believe us? Google it. This genre-defining MMO RPG burst onto the scene in 2004 with its unique blend of old-school text-based action and immersive gritty content, and Torn's limitless, free-to-play virtual city continues to provide new experiences over a decade later.

Play through this official app with push notifications and instant login functionality.

With a community of established opponents and 13 years of constant updates, new players can plug straight into a living, breathing RPG world complete with history, lore, rivalries and more. Newcomers arrive in Torn every day looking to shake up the established order, but only the most dedicated ever succeed.

So if you’re looking to make a name for yourself just be careful who you cross, because this place is no playground. Torn City is full of back-biting and drama, and whining will not be tolerated. You will be robbed. You will be shot. You will have flaming dog poop left at the front door of your mansion. If you're not ready to fight in the gutter and embrace chaos, we suggest you walk away now.

But if you think you've got what it takes then prepare yourself for a challenge, because every day is different, and on arrival you'll need to make friends and make them fast. The cops won't save you here, as before you know it you'll be plunged headfirst into real-time fights and brutal faction conflict - and that's just day one.

I Like it , however, language is an issue

I like the game greatly, however, if there can be an update that allows for more languages to be used in this game that would be appreciated, like I would like to use Japanese like I do many other games, however, it will just come out as an error using some random letters and numbers, such as when I do signature for profile and forums. If possible, I would like an update that can allow for the use of many other languages, though a translator would be good to use for translating text into another language for others who play this game who may be from another country such as European and Asian countries. I have encountered such things in other games and it makes it easier to communicate with other players of other countries who play as well. Plus if you allow for the ability to use other languages, this could allow the game to spread even further to other countries as well. This could also be beneficial to the game for they may have more donators from other countries that don’t use languages available to be used in the game such as English. Which this means the game could go for even more improvements or updates or events and so forth.

Amazing Long Term Game

This is probably one of the best games you will ever find. Torn is a game where you can do anything, be anybody and do it while you are meeting some great people along the way.

The only down side to the game is the steep learning curve. It truly is a long term game. I have been playing over 10 years and even I would not know how to start a new account in the game. I have referred many friends to the game and the friends I could convince to play for 2-3 months still play to this day. So if you want to truly give it a shot, play for 2-3 months and see how you like it.

As far as the app itself, it is basically just an extension of the internet based game, that coincides with the web based game. You can log into both and play from both. The app is fast enough and works well.

I can’t download it?

I love the game and have been playing off a browser the whole time. I finally decided to download the game so I wouldn’t have to watch a clock or set a timer for me to come back on. I successfully downloaded it and it worked fine for a couple of hours. After a while when I went to open the app it was stuck on the start up page, with “torn” on it. So I finally deleted it figuring it was a glitch. I went and downloaded it again and I forgot about it. About half an hour later I needed my phone and unlocked it to find it still not downloaded. The progress bar didn’t even show up, just the spinning circle right before it starts downloading. I tried again about three more times with the same outcome. I always end up getting a “unable to download torn at the time” message and it cancels it. I don’t know if this is important but I play off both my iPad and my iPhone. iPad is having no problems with the app, aside from some in-game glitches. It’s just the phone that’s not working.
