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 this makes Masthead's sci-fi MMO all the more interesting. Earthrise is something of an odd fish, with both real-time XP grinding and offline advancement, as in Eve Online. It's got a huge PvE world, the size of Azeroth, but also territorial PvP between guilds. It's not exactly looking super big-budget, but there's nevertheless a good chance this might actually last longer than Tabula Rasa - assuming Masthead don't aim too high... Anyway, the beta sign up is on the site, so it might be worth putting your name down.
