Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind Dungeon Siege III, Fallout: New Vegas, and Neverwinter Nights 2, is working with Russian Internet giant Mail.Ru on a new MMORPG for the PC. Dubbed Skyforge, the game is not a crafting-focused blacksmith simulation set in the Skyrim universe. Instead, it's a "sci-fi fantasy" game that combines traditional MMO and RPG elements with combat inspired by console action titles. Check out the trailer:
There's no mention of the engine technology, but the visuals sure look pretty. I dig the inclusion of more action-oriented combat, too. The most impressive thing about Skyforge may be the scale, though. The official website claims the game will support "millions of players on one server."
I don't see a release date anywhere on the Skyforge site, but there is a beta sign-up page. Let the "In Soviet Russia..." comments begin.
