Amazon are striking a very brave path into a sub-genre of MMO that has seen some real disasters but also some legendary triumphs. Star Wars Galaxies, Ultima Online, Shadowbane and Eve Online are all games set in stone as the real foundation for the MMO sandbox genre.

There haven't been many attempted by larger companies in the past few years because the risk is too great for the potential reward, but with Amazon Studios stepping into the ring with some extremely impressive first footage we could well see a AAA sandbox MMO in the next few years. No word on a release date yet but considering the impressive state of the pre-alpha build, it's not a million miles away but it's certainly not round the corner either.

I was very impressed by what I saw and I'm very excited to see which direction the game takes next. All aboard the hype train.

    Really? Every link took me to my Amazon page with a "Currently Unavailable" notice.... Does that mean I'm already signed up for Alpha?

    Reading further down, which I wasn't prepared to do before, I see you have to hit the "Email Me" option, and that does it.

    If I really want to be a good Alpha tester for a new game like this, is there a 'Bible' for testing I should follow?

    Gut Out!

    What, me worry?

    While killing other players is possible, it will be discouraged by a criminal justice system that we sadly weren't given details of yet, but we do know there will be bounties that can be placed on a player's head. These sort of features allow the introduction of emergent gameplay where the players create the content for themselves. With criminals with bounties on their heads comes bounty hunters, harking back to the old PK (player killer) vs Anti-PK days of Ultima Online.

    It's likely the similar thing to LiF MMO, the PvP has consequences anyway but it's open world possible and frequent enough if you aren't watching out

    The whole "UO open PvEvP" thing isn't my cup of tea but I'm interested because of Amazon.  Ultimately I prefer my games to be focused, as inevitably PvE or PvP suffers as a result of trying to juggle them both.

    Non-voluntary PvP with full loot?  Yay, I'm so happy I could shit...
  • RhoklawRhoklaw Member EpicPosts: 6,420
    So, full loot PvP eh? Is this truly an MMO or are we going to end up with something like Conan Exiles?

    Combat better be solid if they plan on making any of this work.
    Raging Demons for all flowchart "Kens". This is a metaphor.
