Holy cow that building looks delicious, I want to nibble on its rooftiles. But the landscape in the background looks awful. Hopefully players make it cool instead of awful like Second Life.

They make a lot of big promises. I hope they do really well!

They have actually just released a major graphics overhaul about a week ago.

This update, which also included numerous mechanics changes, has prompted them to add one additional phase of closed beta for testing purposes, which unfortunately means that open beta will be delayed another month or two.

This looks very promising.
If this will provide the same freedom of Ultima Online, it will end my dark age of MMOs. Last MMOs I liked have been Aion and GW2.
The last MMOs I really loved has been Dark Age of Camelot, almost two decades ago.

I hate to derail the thread, but if you're looking to recapture that oldschool MMO feeling, I strongly recommend Project Gorgon. If you can overlook performance issues and incomplete areas, what's left is a pretty awesome MMO in the classic style.

I played the closed beta but it's pretty barebones atm. Very UO-clone-ish but doesn't have enough content to separate it into its own sort of game imo. The NPC merchant mechanics are terrible though I've heard they're going to change them. But imo the game is far, far from finished.

Thanks, I will have a look.
