Their own description is too good to pass up. The We Ride team is setting out to bring back the action packed PvP mayhem that many have longed for since the dawn of this century. According to Ben Holme, "I want it to be hard as hell. No magically flaming swords, no mighty castles. No, you live in a barren desert, you're gonna get killed and looted, and you're gonna love it!"

    Well, I can say I saw anything of real interest in the trailer for me.

    Mention of "seasons," meaning progression is reset periodically? Non starter then.

    Also I enjoy earning things, but not from killing and looting others, especially if it involves slaughtering folks senselessly, there needs to be solid purpose behind the mayhem.

    I do play FFA full loot games, but only when I'm convinced there are mechanics in place to manage my level of risk, as so often is it the case where I'm often taking much greater risks than those who hunt me.

    Not a game for me then, will take the advice given so often by fans of this sort of thing and stay far away.

    I will say, with that cool title I was disappointed to find out this wasn't a game based on motorcycle gangs in a dystopian dark setting in the near future. Nope, standard fantasy trope once again. B)

    Quick and easy games to make... plus with the popularity of PUBG, you're going to see more and more of these. The clones come a knocking...

    The voice over reminds of some sap who lost the bet while drinking and had to come up with a voice at the last minute.

    Don't drink and voice over kids...

    Is this a joke or an actual game?

    If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!

    I don't even..... Seriously this looks like the wet dream of some disgruntled Ultima Online veteran that laments the days he was an 'allstar quarterback'/All American Hero/Ultimate PvPer..

    What is even most concerning is the shameless ripping off of the Ultima Online spell words of power.... You can see through the preview video, the player is casting spells such as "In Jux Sanct' (Magic Reflection) and In Por Ylem (Magic Arrow).

    Ultima Online had an amazing magic system and the PvP was great during particular eras.... however you can't just shamelessly rip off their entire spell system without drawing on the ire of EA's legal team.

    Whoever is developing this in their bedroom has some serious lessons to learn..... You can't just grab your 90's nostalgia, nudie mags and a game engine and put them in a blender and expect success....

    Looks like a high school kid's class project, and the narrator sounds like a kid trying to disguise his prepubescent warbling with a very, very bad 'tough guy' voice.

    Free is too high a price. They should be paying us to play this crap.

    If I understand this correctly a single person created this game. If that's true or even a team of 2-3, then congrats for sure. The people flaming the game in here probably lack the ability to create a pancake, so don't listen to them. Most people don't get anywhere near this stage in creating a game. It may not be the style of game I like and I may never play it, but I still commend you for your efforts and passion for the craft. Good job.

    What does this game have to do with PUBG? It looks like an ultima clone before they ruined PvP....that game is from the 90s, and there are already more of them coming out, Shards and Albion are both similar to UO

    Why does it matter if people copy mechanics from different games anyway? No modern mmo has invented all of the mechanics in their game, not even close....so all this clone talk all over this forum and others is ridiculous....now this game might get into trouble as far as stealing IP goes....using the same exact spell words and the same weapon suffixes is riding a fine line.....

    hm, for one man project it seems very interesting and actually features he is mentioning might be interesting /player made quests/dungeons/- it all comes to the actual combat system and how it plays, but he at least isnt trying to sell it and keeps it for free for testing /but the UO spells rip off while bringing some nostalgia is quite lame/

    Yeah that was a little bit over the top. I had a bit of a lol too.

    It kind of looks and sounds like a fan project which should be cool for the niche that didn't like how UO evolved. I'd rather see teams build original clones than rip off code and run EMUs. It think it's cool that they got a game built out.

    The visuals in the game seem okay to me. However, I'm not interested in this sort of pvp thing in the least.
