The Fall Of Earthrise

You're probably in trouble if Richard Cobbett hasn't heard of you. When I mentioned to him that Earthrise, a sci-fi based MMO, had closed its servers, he responded with a dismissive shrug, trying to casually hide his missing knowledge in a stance of indifference. But I spotted a bead of sweat forming on his forehead, and knew that Masthead's MMO's failure to make an impact…

Freed: Earthrise To Remove Monthly Fee

Earthrise is a peculiar sort of game. In lots of ways it's an interesting experiment in MMO freedom, with Eve style skills, projectile weapons, and a big PvP-open world. The problems with it, however, are that despite being beautiful, it's grindy, jittery, and has a low playerbase. Devs Masthead have acted to try and remedy that last bit by removing the monthly fee as of…

Earthrise Brings A Slightly Better Trailer

Earthrise hooked my attention with its talk of an open, sandbox MMO world of sci-fi shootiness, and then we saw the first beta trailer and, well, it wasn't the best thing ever. There's a new trailer now (below), and it's somewhat better. It's a little story of some friends adventuring and then getting PvP'd up. It's also clearly staged/filmed on the live server, too, because…

Um. Hmm: See Earthrise In Motion

Offbeat sci-fi MMO Earthrise sounds pretty intriguing, at least going on the information the devs have put out so far, and the interview we did with them over here. That said, the assets that have been coming out of the ongoing beta are... disappointing. The latest beta footage, which I've posted below, doesn't seem to break that them. And I know this is beta footage…

Interview: Masthead Talk Earthrise

Since its announcement in 2008 things have been quiet at Earthrise towers. Bulgarian devs Masthead have been quietly working away on an apocalyptic sci-fi MMO, which has long been sounding like one of the more interesting prospects from Eastern Europe. A free-form, sandbox approach, a player-driven economy, politics, PvP and PvE conflict over resources, and a claim to be doing things in an "old school"…

The Spiderbot Hop: Earthrise Trailer

This is an odd one: a trailer which combines what is clearly in-game footage minus the UI (complete with some bunny hopping) and footage that is obviously pre-scripted stuff. Anyway, it gives us a good glimpse of some of the environments and characters in motion - which are intriguing enough, if bland in places - and introduces laser action for the first time. All of…

Post-Post Apocalyptic: Earthrise

Edit - comments closed on this because it's attracting an insane amount of spam, for some reason. If anyone desperately wants to add a comment to this story, just lemme know and I'll open 'er up again. All eyes are on Conan and Warhammer, MMO-wise, at the moment. While both are undeniably exciting, they're still clinging onto the same fantasy lifeboat as their established competition.…
