Earthrise has officially died.
"EarthRise originally launched February 4rth 2011. Making this MMO less than a year old."
Mortal Online went live in June 2010 making it nearly 2 years old now. With it's rising population, steady progress with patching, and an upcoming expansion in April it looks like Mortal Online will live on for many years to come.
So why did I post about Earthrise dieing in the Mortal Online forums? Both games are indy sandboxes, and while Earthrise failed Mortal Online succeeded by staying true to it's sandbox principles. Earthrise tried to take the middle road to appease both Sandbox and themepark gamers, but failed miserably. Both Earthrise and Mortal had very buggy beginnings, but later improved with bugfixes and more features, but Mortal Online is still going strong and Earthrise has failed to find serious investors to go free to play.
It's always sad to see an MMO die, but at least former EarthRise players can try MortalOnline for there sandbox pvp action.
