Default Crowfall breaks $6M in funding, starts new test session


A brief intro: Crowfall is incoming medieval fantasy MMORPG, described as "Game of Thrones meets Eve online" (by developers) or, say, "Your Star Wars Galaxies crafting in my Shadowbane" (by fans). You can find much more details and images, say, in IGN's Crowfall Wiki.

Besides USA east & west coast, they already have working test servers in EU, Singapore and Australia (!), as mentioned in yesterday's MMORPG.com column. This is very important detail for anybody interested in latency and PvP, which is Crowfall's core feature.

Pre-Alpha tests started just recently (the game was kickstarted in March this year), and at this point it still looks rather like some kind of buggy MOBA than large scale game with sieges, alliances, politics and all that stuff. Anyway, here is some test footage:

PS feel free to ask anything, good or bad - I'll be checking this for questions.

The game was voted for "The most anticipated MMO" on MMORPG.com, skills and skill trees are revealed (roughly, progression will be similar to Eve Online's), ArtCraft Entertainment just announced destruction, sieges and captures as the core of next (February) wave of tests and for anybody interested - here is 20 min of game development behind the scenes.

PS Also, here is some bit more recent (than the OP ones) test footage:

Wasn't sure if creating a new thread was a better idea than a massive necro...

The game is still in development (yea... after all this time lol, it's a KS MMO so it takes a while o.o)

They've made some interesting changes since then, like unlocking the gender/classes/races so instead of the predefined archetypes, players can customize their character (i.e. like most traditional MMO games out there).

I apparently can't post a link to Youtube, but there's a cool video out there showing some graphics improvements, it's named "Crowfall – “Massive Reveal”, Part 2: Graphics Overhaul".
