If you are like me into RPGs and esp. MMORPGs then you may want to check out these upcoming MMOs and apply for a (closed) beta spot if you haven’t already done so.
Age of Conan
By Crom this looks promising indeed, esp. for all PvP lovers out there. Blood and gore galore. Bring it on.
Update: Played at gc2007. Delayed until 2008 and that is a good thing. Still, what I saw so far was not too thrilling.
Richard Garriot’s new project. A Sci-Fi MMO. Will it be more than a MMO-FPS? The setting is compelling.
Update: Release Oct. 19th 2007. It will be another MMO released way before it is ready. Failure will be the consequence.
Sword of the New World
Multi-Character control? Intriguing concept and snazzy costumes. Me like, esp. the hot panties. Need to check this out.
Update: Released. Awkward from A-Z. Forget about the costumes. This game sucks.
Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising
This just looks awesome. It looks so stunning that you cannot help but wonder if there will be anyone who actually has a PC able to run this in all its glory.
Update: Still looks good, keys are being mailed out these days in waves. Watch your inbox!
Built with the Unreal 3 engine, Fury unleashes the full havoc of pure online PvP across servers! If you are no fan of PvP then this might be a bit too rough for you.
Update: Played at gc2007. Sluggish controls, awkward UI, mediocre graphics and the PvP sucks. I can’t find anything good to say about Fury except for the Fury Pizza Boy commercial.
There’s of course also Warhammer Online but honestly, will it ever come out? I never was really and now definitely am no longer interested in that one. There are too many way more interesting titles coming up.
Good luck with the signups!
