With the imminent launch of Earthrise, the post-apocalyptic MMOG from Masthead Studios, Ten Ton Hammer wanted to look deeper into the game. With a setting that includes a totalitarian government, an underground resistance, mutants, scarce resources, and man-eating plants, who wouldnt want to hack their survival skills in this post-apocalyptic setting? To that end, we managed to trade enough non-irradiated water for the chance to sit down and talk with Atanas Atanasov, Earthrise Producer.
Atanas Atanasov: Players in Earthrise will not be divided into classic MMO roles such as healer, tank, etc. Parties can assign roles based on the gear that a player has and the skills that they know. The tricky part in PvP is that players will be able to switch weapons during combat and can play different roles at their will, as long as they have learned the necessary skills.
