    Such little information that rushing to call it an MMO is wrong.

    We don't know if it has a massive open world.

    We don't know if it allows massive multiplayer.

    Who knows how online it actually is. It might be another instance-based peer-to-peer cashshop game.
    There are no bathrooms, only Zuul.

    "... no information is useful."

    I wish more had this outlook toward all games. Only gameplay is relevant. If a developer is not talking about or showing gameplay direct- who gives a shit.

    The UI looks sleek.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    I'm assuming OP works for that Crowfall company. I have no idea how a "game can look promising" just from those little tidbits.

    Not saying the game won't be good, but I mean this is the MMO Champion forum where we've heard this same thing dozens of times:

    WELCOME TO CROWFALL.
    If you’re here, it’s because you’re looking for something.

    Something deeper than a virtual amusement park. More impactful than a virtual sandbox. More immersive. More real. A game where decisions matter.

    We are, too. We’ve been looking for years, and we still haven’t found it…. because it doesn’t exist. Yet.

    All that pessimism out of the way, the few design/artstyle choices we see so far are interesting.

    WOAH, a sandbox MMO that's more immersive where decisions matter?! We've never seen ANYTHING like this! Next they'll say it's more difficult, crafting matters, and cooperation is really important (and probably start a kickstarter). Also the GoT ripoff of the banners at the bottom is great.

    The only reason to give this a pass on this is that one of the main guys was a creator of Shadowbane which did actually have most of those things (J. Todd Coleman). Shadowbane had more than its share of problems but it's one of the few that could actually claim to have the stuff listed there.

    If it's mostly an updated Shadowbane I'll give it a look at least since I played that for a few years.

    I feel like every recent MMO (and by recent I mean like 10 yrs) that hasn't lived up to the hype has touted having someone who worked on something good at some point. It seems they can never recreate their awesome previous work, whether that's because of nostalgia or something else I'm not sure.

    I know, and most people wouldn't even consider Shadowbane as something good. I was reading one thing where they were touting all the previous MMO experience the people working on this had, and all I could think was "Someone working on any of these games in the past 8 years is not something to brag about". Shadowbane was flawed enough in its own right that if someone merely updated it, it could have a decent niche following since there hasn't really been anything quite like it since (that I've seen anyway).

    Plus like video game development teams are huge. Any time a great game comes out there are like 100 people who worked on that game. I don't think anyone could attribute the success of a game to just one person or feel that they are going to carry a whole new dev team on their back.

    Have to agree with this lol The OP even says "Game looks promising. So far we have litle of information about the game." >_> You know next to nothing about it, no game-play or anything and yet, it looks promising?!

    Granted, I'm a fan of art and it does have some pretty things to look at. But until I see the actual game-play and hell, actually know some solid info about it, I have nothing to get hyped about.

    Meh, got bored by WoD and i dont see any mmo being interesting nowadays.
    Cod has a new campaign, new weapons, new multiplayer levels every year. Zelda has been recycling the same weapons, villains, and dungeons since the 80's. Zelda recycles enough to make cod blush. The same weapons, villains, dungeons, and princess in every single Zelda for the most part. It's almost as cheesy as bowser vs Mario round 35

    That's because you do nothing but fanboy all over it, it doesn't need to be stated in threads like this lol

    OT: I think it'll be hard for anyone to get excited over this until they actually know/see more about it. Unless they're the kind that just gets excited at their being any old MMO on the horizon.

    Yeah, no. I think you'll find a lot of people disagreeing with you there, and for good reason. You may be fine with a game that has Stick Figure A and Stick Figure B, who then travel down a Stick Road and fight a Stick Figure C, with no plot, no lore, no graphics, no nothing, but an insanely great gameplay, but a lot of people want their games to deliver a bit more than that.

    A good example on this might be, while years and years apart, take Dune 2, which was an insanely good game but which had absolutely abhorrent gameplay as far as RTS' go, and then compare it with pretty much any current C&C, all of which have fine-tuned the gameplay, but as games suck way too much to be played.
