Earthrise - Sandbox MMO, out soon

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
www.play-earthrise.com/

I'm sure there will have been a lot of people keeping an eye on this game - our guild signed up to the beta about a year ago and I've been keeping an eye on it myself for around 2 years.

It's a sandbox MMO, you start with nothing and you make yourself into whatever you want to be... i.e. You don't pick a class, you pick as you go along and you can unlearn. That's the way I understand it anyway.

The entire game will be ran by player crafting, resources come from mining and your mines can be stolen. Player cities, mercenary guilds, ect. It looks sounds rather appealing. Not to mention there are a lot of pre-CU SWG Vet's going to this game - probably the best community of any MMO I've ever played.

I thought I'd make those who aren't aware of this that the game should be out very soon, I'm hearing as soon as a week or two's time.

There are a lot of things that need fixing by the sounds of it so I'm not overly optimistic of a nice, perfect start, but then again what MMO has had that!?

For those of you who enjoy MMO's, you _really_ need to try a sandbox so you can get away from being the same as everyone else, have your own home in the city that you want to live in, join a guild that suits you (terrorist, mercenary, law abiding, neutral).

If anyone else has better info on this - please share!

Is it full pvp?

If not I guess I am still waiting for mortal online to come to NA.

I don't think it's full PVP in terms of, you can only level from PVP - but in terms of the endgame it's all about what territory people own as to how strong your side will be - an ever changing world all decided on PVP.

As for the gameplay I haven't seen much recently much about 6 months ago it doesn't look fantastic, but then again it's about the same as SWG looked and I loved the combat in that. It's just not WoW-based combat like most games these days - it's a change!!

Which is why I asked if it had full pvp but I guess not.

What I really meant is could I run around and kill anyone I wanted to for no particular reason other then his hat looked nice?

In the game I was trying to compare this to (mortal online, or darkfall even I guess) you can do this and WHEN you die you lose all your items. Mortal is unfortunately still only European servers so I can't do to well on them.

Earthrise still looks all right I guess and if it had a trial I would try it out to see if I like it or not but most new MMOs typically don't aside from a beta.

Just looking at some more Gameplay Videos, but this looks bangtidy.

I like the fact that it's an actual RPG MMO, as opposed to something like Global Agenda, which is just an MMO Shooter. I think this is looking like what I wished GA was. I hope the character progression is slow so that it's worth while putting time in; I hate games that cater for casual gamers making your character maximisable in a handful of months.

Dreadlocks + cornrows = dreadrows?

I'll be waiting out 2011 for the MMO wars dust to settle. Too many potentially great ones are coming out this year for me to make a commitment to one right now.
