When someone asks you if you’re a god, Ray, you say, “Not yet, but I will be if I play Skyforge.”
That’s the promise of My.com/Allods Team/Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming MMO Skyforge, in which players can become gods and fight for the planet of Aelion, forsaken by the god Aeli and subject to the ravages of alien invaders. Today, a wild trailer appeared, showing off the game world and, unlike many trailers, giving some insight into gameplay.
According to the trailer, “A planetwide system displays the prayers for help from the planet’s mortals” — which looks like a form of a dynamic event system with rapid response capabilities. And, since Skyforge promises millions of players on a single server, these responses could be truly massive. If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Apparently everyone.
If you ain’t afraid of no beasts, you can sign up for the Skyforge beta on the game’s site.
