Here’s a new, visually splendid, science fiction action MMORPG from Singaporean dev RealU and free-to-play types Gamigo. Based on the “cyberpunk Lord Of The Rings” book series by Tad Williams, Otherland seems to mash up abstract sci-fi visuals with more traditional fantasy MMO guff, as well as some entirely abstract things. Crazy whirling fly-through announcement trailer details all this, below:
It’s a bit all over the place isn’t it? Medieval war, Pleasure zone AND Mars Simulation? I don’t really have much of a clue about what’s going on, but I like what I see.
Otherland is going to be free to play, and is due out some time in 2012. We’ll find out more about it before that time, probably.
