If you haven’t heard of this game yet, you should! It’s an upcoming massive RPG from 38 Studios and it is absolutely awesome. If you love open world fantasy RPG’s with extensive character customization, crafting, and ruthless visceral combat, you just found your next game of the year.
I know it's awesome because of the gameplay footage, E3 coverage and the writer who created the world/story (R. A. Salvatore).
I know the studio is awesome because I work there ;-) (I'm not working on this game though).
Footage is one thing, but another is the feel of it, is it meaty and really tasty or is it flaw and feels boring, this is kinda important for an RPG, because I hate to play a game that are really flaw and boring with it's Story and Battle System.
But GL and HF to your colleagues with the Game. ^^
My personal view: I can't say what I think of the game, because I haven't played it, But I can tell my view of the Genre that the game sees to be, I am beginning to be quiet tired with all the fantasy, shining human Hero kind of games there are too many of them on the market, also they all almost look the same, only new models and landscape, but story mostly the same, Good vs Evil. But maybe it is something else with this? I most say I do not know R. A. Salvatore and his creations, so i can't tell.
Also, can you tell us if there is going to be something really Goofy?(You do not work on the game, so I do not demand an answer for this one d:)
Either way, GL and HF with the game developing, big respect from RedKnox! d:
I recommend watching the PAX East coverage, but be aware that it is 40 minutes long. It will show you more of the combat, features, and character customization. One of the best features of this game is the care that was applied to the story. It is a serious story, though I cannot say as to what the details of the plot are (good vs. evil or what not). It is certainly not goofy.
I was interested in this game well before I begun working there, though that may fall on deaf ears due to my apparent bias, haha.
That's not to say it can't be a good game, but I've kind of grown as to not really take most MMORPGs too seriously anymore.
Same here, I do play Rift, mainly because I got friends to play with and leak of Sci-fi/modem MMOs on the Market. I hope for a Mass Effect MMO <3
But calling the game a WoW Clone, I wouldn't, the graphic style of the game looks not "cartoony"- and "My little pony"-ish.
