    Which would need to be licensed from R.E. Howard estate
    Odd comment. 
    Solomon Kane is simply "an example" of what the game could look like. And as I said I think the film is excellent. "Last of the Mohican's" or "Treasure Island" - it could easily shift incorporate the Carribean and add Pirates - or countless other books could have been suggested.

    As for copyright though it does expire. For modern works "death + 70 years" is typical in countries that are signatories to the Berne convention. Howard died 1936 however and many works were published after his death so .... suffice to say it is "messy". However in some countries you will find Project Guttenberg Solomon Kane stories in e-book form in the public domain.

    And I am going to finish by plugging the film again because I liked it!

    Well glad to see someone with a fuck ton of money is willing to give the sandbox MMO another go.



    I have serious doubts that this will be a deep sandbox MMORPG - they are going for watchability, and twitch streaming - complexity and depth make BORING streams. 

    Black Desert with all it's system is boring as shit to watch, same with a lot of farming/crafting intricacies of AA - it's boring for others to watch that.

    Since all Amazon games are going for heavy "twitchability" - I don't think they're going to be very complex/deep games - so even as a sandbox - I expect this one to be a very light sandbox game.


    Just my 2c.

    See this:

    "Focused on emergent gameplay and rich social features – including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards – your only limit in the New World is your ambition."

    Broadcaster led events?
    Achievements?

    Does that sound like a deep sandbox MMORPG to you - nope

    Their top priority is to make it very watchable and streamable, not to make a deep MMORPG



    So more than likely an open world sandbox MMO version of ARK where everyone builds and has a battle royale.

    sounds like it - basically a h1z1 king of the kill variant with maybe some building...or some improved rust...not interested... if it was a spiritual sibling to everquest next - hell yea...but another battle royal..pffff no one needs that

    I can't see the setting having mass appeal, but what do I know, I'm a plumber.

    Yet another PvP gankfest "sand box"? I thought that the "survival" gimmick had been worn out by this time.

    No, I'm pretty sure the gimmick that has worn thin is the "let's take our merry band of adventurers and run off to kill the big baddie (the game won't let us lose because it might damage our egos) so we can gather enough gold (supplemented via cash shop) to play barbie dress-up, home decoration, and hide from the real world".

    Now that's something that NEEDS to die.

    Sounds really promising, and even if it is overly twitch oriented I'd take that over the alternatives we received over the past decade. So many people, myself included, have been asking for a AAA sandbox and finally we have one. Also, I loved the purely mature setting AoC and no one since had, here's hoping they do something similar!

    Interesting, since CCCP abandoned the WoD.O. there was a gap for adult MMORPGs. Also I read comment about the history of that era but I dunno how much they will follow it, although it sounds excellent as base content to use and expand. With witches, voodoo and animal spirits but also gun powder and imported skills of swordfight from Europe and Eastern Asia...

    But now its really early for all these promises and the only stuff I can think and worry about is this twitch integration. How it will happen? They will try to recreate the DayZ into a fantasy theme?

    I do not 100% agree with this assessment. Building bases, establishing power is going to be boring, that I agree with, but if done right once the bases are built, territory claimed (bandits etc) I can see the game play at that point taking a turn and becoming twitch worthy.

    Also, believe it or not people just playing GW2 (for instance) get followers. No kidding, just grinding levels in GW2 and there were something like 50 watchers when I roamed through a few hours ago. So people will watch anything.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    We have such limited information on it that it makes it currently the best game ever that I haven't played.  I am an optimist so it has all the cool stuff I always wanted and none of the junk that annoys me.

    If I was feeling a bit pessimistic today it would of course have all that crap that ruins games and none of what I deemed important.

    A setting is just a backdrop really and is usually the least determining factor to why I play games.  I can think of past present and future settings and all of those in between that set the backdrop for some games I loved and some I didn't care for at all.  

    There are probably thousands of games with elves and fairies and dwarves and I am just thankful it doesn't seem to be leaning towards that.

    Time will tell what its actual content and game play is like and I really hope they hit this one out of the park with their big backing to produce something that keeps me entertained for at least a few months.

    Anything by Amazon is sure you be good! This looks like a very interesting and fresh concept, I will definitely keep updated on it.

    My problem is the Mature rating... I'm Christian (Catholic) and I dont play games with that rating.

    Too bad, was excited. Not now. Wont be playing.

    Back to WoW and waiting for Camelot Unchained.


    what does rating have to do with being able to play a game or not? Why would it matter if it was rated "Teen", and if it was the same exact game? If it helps, in the UK will be rated teen as they aren't as fanatical over there about ratings as in the US. Even nudity is allowed there and anyone can see it no matter the age lol

    But I'm guessing this is just a troll post made to make laughs :D


    I dont troll, thanks... No, its all about nudity. I can deal with violence and scary things. But it is against my religion and morals to be exposed to nudity when I make all efforts to keep purity for Jesus. I dont know if they will have nudity in it but in most games with the Mature rating tag, there it is. I plan on playing Camelot Unchained because I love PvP and it has hardly any nudity whatsoever.

    Now if someday I find out this game is Mature rating only for scary imagery, and minimal nudity, then yes I will probably play it. But right now the Mature rating makes me think against that.



    Ah you gotta love fanatical religious zealots thinking nudity the most natural thing in the world is somehow bad while violence is ok ...

    Actually, this is more of a USA mentality than a religious one.  Nudity isn't a big deal to Europeans, etc., but in the US they've always censored it and made a huge deal about it.
    Whereas, like you mentioned, violence gets completely ignored and accepted by the US, in general.

    I've seen the Euros mock and joke about this all the time.  I admit, as an American, I totally agree with their point.  I think it's strange the way something as natural and simple as nudity is heavily censored but people don't even twitch at seeing folks being mutilated and slaughtered.
