Brad McQuaid is making an MMORPG. That is not in itself a shock, seeing how he was once the important thing fashion designer of EverQuest and government producer of the now not-terribly-a hit Leading edge: Saga of Heroes, however howdy – a brand new Brad McQuaid recreation is giant information. Pantheon: Upward push of the Fallen hasn’t formally been introduced but, however after the sport’s (at the moment dormant) twitter web page used to be uncovered a few days in the past, McQuaid printed the brand and some early small print in a sequence of tweets.
First, here is that brand. McQuaid describes the atmosphere as “Difficult Epic Planar Excessive Fable”, which might provide an explanation for the presence of a ringwraithy kind factor within the nook.
McQuaid additionally published on his twitter feed that there will probably be a “minimal three years to [Pantheon's] liberate. Additionally, there may be going to be an extended beta”. When requested if the sport might be a ‘real open world MMO’, he answered that it’ll function a “extra open world, with quests and stuff to do, however you do not need to do all of them.”
Yet one more titbit comes from Pantheon’s twitter account, which describes the sport as “the up to date, difficult, team-targeted MMO Sport”.
Apparently, McQuaid factors out that the sport’s twitter feed “just isn’t owned by means of SOE”, as it is now not been totally clear whether or not the sport has any hyperlinks to Sony On-line Leisure, or whether or not it can be a brand new project by means of a completely separate firm. We will probably be aware of extra very quickly – McQuaid and co are planning to launch a Kickstarter for Pantheon.
