Auto Assault at Worthplaying [ Game -> Preview ]

More info on Game: Auto Assault

The latest preview of Auto Assault is at Worthplaying. Nothing much new is said, but that's hardly surprising.

The combat in the game is action-packed. The interface could easily be out of an arcade action game, being one of the first MMORPGs I've ever seen that could, and perhaps should, be played using a gamepad (perhaps with the Xbox 360 controller attached to your PC, wink wink) instead of the traditional mouse/keyboard setup. In combat zones, you'll drive your vehicle around, with a variety of weapons and abilities at your disposal. The vehicles I saw all had a front-mounted gun and a rotating turret weapon of some sort, allowing focused attacks to the front of the vehicle and weaker attacks directed in any direction. Although the game looks and plays much like some sort of vehicle combat game, whether you hit and how much damage you deal is all being calculated behind the scenes using random rolls based upon your skills. Your weapons each create a visible arc stretching out from your vehicle, and only targets within the arc can be attacked when firing. At the heart of Auto Assault, the game is still very much an MMORPG, albeit one that plays like an action game.

I suppose MMORPGs are going to move to consoles properly pretty soon. I'm undecided on whether I should care or not...
