The world is in peril and it's last hope at saviour lies with a group of genetically modified women. Yes you read that right JUST women. Why? Who knows but it was probably man's fault and we had it coming. Nevertheless therein lies the premise for Aeria Games latest MMO Scarlet Blade.

The game was announced today and according to Tom Nichols, Director of Publishing at Aeria its "one of the most unique and impressive games" the publisher has had the privilege of publishing. According to Tom the MMO features "a phenomenal level of depth and style" and expects the "charming cast of all-female playable characters will attract a passionate following of MMORPG gamers.”

Along with the announcement, a new teaser website and trailer have appeared which give us a small amount of insight into what we can expect from the MMO. Looking past the obvious similarities in armour between Phantasy Star Online 2 and Scarlet Blade, the MMO seems to be set in a world of interesting diversity. Players should expect environments ranging from lush, exotic jungles, snowy peaks and labyrinthine caves to treacherous abandoned military installations.

Players can also expect "dynamic" features such as the ability to don a suit that eerily resembles the iconic space marine suits from Starcraft. We are told these are in fact hulking mechs that provide temporary access to completely new abilities, play style, and vastly increase power. I still say its a space marine suit.

Beyond this the only other feature revealed currently is the PvP battles where players can expect clashes in sizes up to 80 vs 80. Beyond this players can also take to a huge continually contested open zone specifically built for strategic PvP play between factions. I'm always a fan of large PvP and siege warfare and I am excited to see this style of PvP continue.

Aeria is accepting signups now for the closed beta phase of Scarlet Blade. In the meantime you can check out the teaser trailer and let me know if the mech suit 45 seconds in does or does not look similar to a space marine.

the fact you can't play as male kinda disappoints me I much prefer to play as my own gender however seeing as how queens blade was mostly about it's sex appeal I don't think I'd like to play as a guy in skimpy booty shorts sooooooo yeah

"the ability to don a suit that eerily resembles the iconic space marine suits from Starcraft."

You mean Warhammer 40k, right? The place where they took those from, right?
