Sci-Fi plus PvP Freedom
The science-fiction genre seems to be on the rise in the massively
multiplayer gaming marketplace. With the release of Tabula Rasa, the
continuing success of EVE Online, and the ongoing development of
Jumpgate Evolution, it seems only logical that the next round of MMOG
unveilings should include a good helping of sci-fi. Recently, the
Bulgaria-based Masthead Studios announced that they were hard at work
developing a PvP-oriented science fiction game called Earthrise. The
Ten Ton Hammer staff tracked down Atanas Atanasov, CEO of Masthead
Studios, to answer a few of our questions about the game.
If I must describe PvP in Earthrise with one word –
it is "freedom". In
most popular MMORPG titles you are limited to attacking players from
the opposite faction or players from a guild that you are at war with.
Earthrise will give freedom to the players to attack anyone they want
to in most areas, not without consequences however.
