Otherland First Look Gameplay Video

This time we take a look at Otherland (closed beta), a free-to-play sci-fi multiverse MMORPG that was canceled in 2012 but returned in 2014 with a new developer and a renewed ambition. Based on the novels by Tad Williams, in this game the players enter a multiverse and explore different worlds, from medieval to cyberpunk and others.

    Man, I am super intrigued by this one.

    I mean, it was just so mysterious. And had so much potential. Especially as one of the rare games to try and execute the 90’s sci-fi futurism tone of connected worlds and whatnot. Very Lawnmower Man-era (heck, the design of the world & ‘Simuloids’ show off that heritage pretty overtly – and that is a cool, untapped area of Sci-Fi to draw inspiration from! More games should!). I find that really unique and very exciting… if done well. Which I had no idea at all how this was shaping up.

    Seeing all of this has been rad for me then! I didn’t even know it had action combat before. Or at least, actioney take on traditional WOW-combat. And even with the roughness here (duh, for a CBT), it actually looks pretty solid! I mean, it’s rough for sure – like you said, it lacks Wildstar-style visual indicators – but again, this thing was in development back around 2010 or something originally. It’s bound to be a weird mix of modern and older, outdated stuff. But considering the rocky development road, I’m… kinda… impressed. It really could’ve looked like a complete disaster, yeah?

    Good overview, FMMOS!

    I’m also even interested in perhaps checking out a book in the series now…

      If you want to see more gameplay, twitch streamer Iluya has a few streams of the beta past the tutorial.

      Regarding the books, be aware that it’s all one story, split into 4 volumes, like LotR. So you can’t really check out A book in the series. I highly recommend it, but you should be aware of what you’re getting into. It’s along similar lines to a much shorter Wheel of Time. Only with, you know, computers and stuff.
