Omega Labs First Look

Posted Thu, Aug 07, 2008 by Taea

The folks over at Massively traveled down to the NCsoft Studios to get a look at the newest dungeon in Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa. Senior Designer Wynne McLaughlin gave them the down and dirty secrets coming out of this weapons research facility. Bring your best gear to the read, though. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

Inside you'll find the half-robot, half-zombie Machina, made from the bodies of Bane soldiers... or even Human soldiers. Genetic experiments of all sorts. Biological warfare. McLaughlin explains to us that this is intentionally the hardest content in the game, because it's after you've hit the level cap, but you continue to improve your skills and your armor -- so it should be tough. Even the small team of NCsoft developers decked out in some of the game's best gear didn't manage to get through it unscathed: there was more than one death as we watched them tackle the instance.
