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.

    Everything tied to them is crap.

  11. Eshko on October 31, 2012

    well … looks nice but the chances of this not being pay to win a rather slim like most of aeria games

  12. 70calories on October 31, 2012

    speaking of Aeria anyone know when or if Lime Odyssey is gonna be coming out? seems like that game has been “coming soon” for ages now with little updates… seems like they should finish launching there other coming soons rather then tacking on more to the list

    • Eviil on October 31, 2012

      They still didn’t release it? lol If they remove it, I wouldn’t be surprised. They have all these other games being added and not a word about LO.

  13. 70calories on October 31, 2012

    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

  14. Kingsan on October 30, 2012

    This game looks awesome. Via trailer anyway.

  15. Lee on October 30, 2012

    Ew another point and click game, why do they think that just changing the storyline and characters and switching to sci fi would… oh yeah… nvm, just remember how many people love spaming 1-9

    • LordHikaru on October 30, 2012

      … I still haven’t played a non-point and click that doesn’t involve spamming some kind of button. Think its kind of a mute point at this point in time.

    • Mohammed on November 11, 2012

      Sam Posted on absolutely aegerd it’s probably more appropriate to have a Best Idea Executed Across More Than One Channel, Including At Least Two Digital category or if you want to be succinct Most Versatile Idea but you’ve got me thinking about how best to evaluate integration

  16. Rufinus on October 30, 2012

    80vs80 ok am ready for the lagg

  17. AttlaZ on October 30, 2012

  18. zoren on October 30, 2012

    something decent from aeria games?

  19. Tio Z on October 30, 2012

    “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?

    • spunkify Author on October 30, 2012

      Im a huge Warhammer fan and yes SC was influenced by Warhammer 40k. But the suit in the video more closely resembles the SC version rather than Warhammer.

  20. Nyro on October 30, 2012

    This actually looks promising. Although I never get too excited when i see Aeria.

  21. Iskavan on October 30, 2012

    So Cabal but with mechs?

  22. DC on October 30, 2012

    It’s basically Queen’s Blade Online but with another name.

    • Tio Z on October 30, 2012

      Question is, like most games that come to the West, will it be censored or remain true to it’s original?

  23. Ramen94 on October 30, 2012

    Awesome. can’t wait to try it out!

    • Siimaniez on November 11, 2012
