    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.

    www.fallenearth.com

    Screens:






    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?

    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.

    Also this.

    Technically you're not supposed to say you're in the beta, but what the hell. What's your ingame name?

    My ingame name is Dirtpunkare Ramon, because he looks just like Dirtpunkaren Ramon, from a Swedish cartoon.

    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'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.

    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.

    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!

    I still don't get why there are so few MMOFPS games about. It's a gap in the market that really needs filling. Planetside did an excellent job but that's near its death and is in desperate need of a replacement.

    If you think it's laggy now, should of seen this bitch back in alpha. Good god that was bad. I stopped playing a month ago or so due to all the fucking character wipes that were planned in the future. (A wipe for closed beta, wipe for open beta, and then a wipe for release, are you fucking kidding me? For a game like this that is so heavily into the servers economy to make the game open beta then wipe the entire market as it gets released is fucking stupid. It's not a simple task creating a working market, since it takes for fucking ever to get anywhere in the game even with a vehicle)

    Games alright, wasn't what they made it out to be when I first found it so long ago though.

    Maybe it will improve over time.

    Edited:

    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.
    No it does not, unless it changed this last month (seeing as the game can't do this I'm going to assume this would require the engine to be re-built, thus, no).

    That was a massive disappointment to me, as was the scraping of mutation powers as they were. Now they are all really just buffs.

    What happened to the kick ass power that they showed in that like 2 year old video of the game. Had the guy (In-game mind you) use the power to pull the ground in-front of him upwards to create a little wall he could duck behind in a firefight.

    The fuck happened to that?

    I got into the alpha on this, but I never downloaded the client, but looking at the screenshots and realizing it's an MMOFPS, I'm definitely going to try it out. Hope my Alpha key works.

    Hit me up in-game if you need any equipment help. I can make all sorts of stuff (excluding melee weapons).

    I'm in the beta, but I never really got into it. I got in right after they apparently changed combat for the worse, and i wasn't impressed with trying to kill things. It quite possibly may have changed now though, I guess I'll give it another go.
