Fallen Earth preview
Fallen Earth preview [ Game -> Preview ]

There's a new preview for the post-apocalyptic MMORPG Fallen Earth at Warcry. It's more to do with the setting than anything else, and looks OK if you like MMORPGS.
Hettinger and Watkins say Fallen Earth was inspired principally by the way Mad Max and other movies like it made dark futures seem real. When it was created, Mad Max played on the fears of the oil crisis in the late 1970s, fears every member of the western world experienced, which gave it both believability and mass market appeal. Icarus is using that concept, marking today's inklings into genetic engineering and viral research as a starting point for Fallen Earth's universe.

Set 150 years into the future, Fallen Earth has a very "Falloutesque" vibe. Technology from the past has been forgotten or lost, and players are charged with rediscovering the majority of it. The first year of the game, according to Icarus, should remain rather low tech; shotguns, pistols, and low grade genetic manipulation will be the norm.

I take offense at the phrase "Fallout fans never had it so good" that's used later in the article.
