Fury (stylized as FURY) was a player versus player (PvP) competitive online role-playing game (CORPG) / massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Auran. It was released on October 16, 2007 and was shut down on August 7, 2008. This place the total life of the game at slightly under ten months. The soundtrack was composed by Pedro Camacho[1]. The game was shut down on August 7, 2008.

Fury's focus on PvP combat differentiated it from traditional RPGs that center around player versus environment (PvE) content against non-player characters. However, like most RPGs, Fury used collectible equipment, skills, and a ranking mechanism for players. Fury used a method of matching equally ranked players from across the world in PvP matches, and was said to not always work well.[citation needed]

Fury further differentiated itself from traditional RPGs by making many of its spells and abilities activate instantly and lacking a cooldown period. The pace of gameplay thus tended to be faster than PvP combat in traditional RPGs. For example, spell-casters in Fury were sometimes not frozen in place when casting a spell, which allowed them to retreat and avoid obstacles that might otherwise have locked them in.
