I recently found out about this MMO from a friend of mine.
It's set in a not so distant future, where an apocalypse has destroyed our civilization as we know it. (I didn't read up much on the story, but it isn't nukes I think, some disease and war or something)
I'm currently in the beta, and I really really like it so far. You start with a unit and goes through a tutorial phase which involves killing stuff and riding an ATV with a bomb and explosions and stuff.
When you're done with that, you start in a village of your choice. There are no classes (I think), but you progress as you go.
It's more Mad Max influenced than Fallout, if you ask me, it's a hybrid between both mixed with hightech.
The game is currently in a closed beta, but being part of it is easy (I got my key after 4 days)
At the time, I crash constantly and lag, but that may be because of my bad hardware, and they'll probably fix most of it as the game progresses, and I hope so, because I feel like this game has great potential'. On the website it says that it'll be out in 2009 Q2, but I think it will be delayed some more.
And yes, you can drive veichles! '
Anyone else have heard of this game/are in the beta? I'll post some of my own pictures later when I'm home from work, since all above is from the official website
This OP sucks, and I know it, but it's still some info. If someone would like to write a better one, just PM me and I'll credit you for it.

Looks cool. I'll try and get in on it. It seems like fallout but with less nukes and more disease and societal collapse.

Yeah, just ask if you think it's hard to apply for the beta. It's somewhat annoying, since you'll have to create a forum account, and go into your settings, and check a box that you want to be in the beta, Then you can write why and how and shit.
I'd try it, looks fun. Is the combat system the same or different from others?
Is it point and click?
I refuse to play those.
This looks freaking awesome.
What's combat like?
Is it level based? (grind?)
Be careful posting screens, look at the EULA of the closed beta. I know that for the BF Heroes closed beta I'm not allowed to release screens publically.

Technically you're not supposed to say you're in the beta, but what the hell. What's your ingame name?
It's not point and click.
My ingame name is Dirtpunkare Ramon, because he looks just like Dirtpunkaren Ramon, from a Swedish cartoon.
What point of view do you have?
Great... the first thing i saw on the homepage was a big button saying [THE GAME]
I came across this when I was looking for a MMOFPS to play, it really caught my eye. Looking forward to its release.
I'm also in the beta, absolutely love it. So far I'm level 19 mainly focusing on rifles and crafting.
We should make a Facepunch guild.
Also, motorcycles are bitchin'.
I wish I was in the beta for this...been waiting for a game like this to come along forever.
I'm in the beta but I stopped playing because the lag was unbearable.
If your not planning on using it could i get it? ;D
I'm in the beta. They've got a lot of work to do on the controls, methinks. Not very streamlined or anything. I understand it's a beta, but still, holy shit. I haven't used it in a while. Don't think I will.
Anybody not playing their beta, can I play it? PM me your info, please :C

They fixed a lot of the frame rate issues in last week's update.
Looks interesting, hope it turns out well... i for one would like a change in MMO's (WoW/EQ/whatever clones can go and die in a big fire)
I applied today, how long did it take you guys to get an account?
[QUOTE=dudder;15139799]They fixed a lot of the frame rate issues in last week's update.[/QUOTE]
really? I might try it again then.
[QUOTE=Havoc.;15139899]I applied today, how long did it take you guys to get an account?[/QUOTE]
took me a couple of months.
If I have to pay monthly for this, and a patch makes it shittier than version 1.0, then someone will make a private server or EMU for it. If I have to pay for this, shit will hit the fan.

You have to pay for this.
Not at the moment, but you will eventually.
I was sold at "Mad Max."
I always preferred Mad Max style apocalypse over the Fallout style. Very little humor in a very bleak environment. Fallout 1 and 2 made it seem like everything was recovering with entire casinos and cities and shit like that sprouting up, Mad Max was really about the end of the world.
Wow this looks pretty sweet, i might try and get in on the beta :biggrin:
Jeez. I applied for the beta a long long time ago. I sort of forgot this game existed. I'm sure I have to make a new account to apply for this beta. The graphics are much much better then the last time I checked!
So wait, how do I apply for the Beta? Just sign up for a forum account?
Sign up for a forum account > Activate Account > Go Control Panel > Click 'Apply for test' in the bottom left corner of your CP > Fill it out and your set.
I've known about this for around 4 years. GOD DAMMIT, HURRY UP AND FINISH IT! Does it still have destructible landscapes? The original announcement said it would.
