It was only a matter of time before someone tried to merge Facebook with a true MMORPG experience and the developers at Ohai are trying to do just that. This week IGN got the chance to check out the Alpha stage development of Ohai's new online game City of Eternals. The game is set in a world of vampires, pitting players against zombies and allowing them to form covens with other vampires. The game is being developed by several developers that helped create games like EverQuest, Planetside, and Free Realms. IGN also has 100 free invites available to those interested in giving the game a try.
The game is still in Alpha, so we didn't get to see all that it has to offer, but it appears City of Eternals plays similarly to most other MMORPGs. You take control of a character who has just recently become a member of the undead. But the other vampires don't quite trust you yet, so you're sent on a series of quests to prove your worth. Once you're done with those quests you get your own home, which can be customized to your liking, and the ability to run around the world at will.
