Whenever we hear about any MMO that isn't World of Warcraft, we're excited. It's not like we have a problem with WOW, but come on, how about a little variety, videogames?
Today's non-WOW MMO: masthead's Earthrise. Yay! Variety!
"This will change the way we play sci-fi MMOs," said Atanas Atanasov, CEO of Masthead Studios in a press release. "Our team is creating a game that will introduce the next innovative approach to the genre, and we feel to MMOs themselves. We based the game in a vision of society's future, where the technology and economics of today have ensured an unavoidable cataclysm. Earthrise won't be just an MMO, but an experience in a new, never-before-imagined post-apocalyptic world."
A post apocolyptic MMO is a great idea. And Bulgaria is great country. So we expect good things. Don't let us down, Earthrise.
According to the company:
Masthead has employed its own engine to craft the stunning graphics and atmosphere in the game, as well as to handle its dynamic combat mechanics. Explore the diverse and sprawling capital city of Sal Vitas and surrounding unclaimed territories. Fight with advanced PvP mechanics featuring customizable power armor, huge mechanized exoskeletons, and an arsenal of weapons to control contested lands and their resources. Influence the market-based economy by working for the corporate world or trading on the black market, all based in immense and highly customized crafting and offline play systems. Players will shape the society in the beginning of a new mankind; or they will create their own dystopia.
