The Chronicles Of Spellborn


So there's a new MMO coming up ["Gasp! No!" - Incredulous Audience] and it's called The Chronicles Of Spellborn. Not sounding good so far, but it's actually not looking too bad. The Unreal-powered visuals have some interestingly trippy aspects, and the game itself has a complex deck-based combat system that relies on combo systems to deliver its punch. Rather than simply being able to unload your skillset, as in WoW, you'll have to work up to the really big hits. Additionally the game is set "within hollow rock-realms known as Shards, floating in the confines of the magical Deadspell Storm", which sounds like a fun time to me.

There's also some weird magical spaceship stuff going on, but I can't find any more information about that. After the jump: the (long) GDC presentation, and Gothic rock-opera, featuring the aforementioned spaceships.

Check out this GDC presentation (recorded in the noisy exhibition hall). Skip to 5mins in to see the character creation, and 20 minutes in to see some of the outside world.

There's also this dodgy glossy-goth rock video over on TenTonHammer. Not quite sure how it's promoting the game, but there we go.

It also has bears, natch:
