Last blog post I talked a little bit about my new teaser video of a new free MMORPG, Faxion Online which is now in open beta. Click on that link to watch the vid if you haven't yet, it's only 30 seconds long.
There's more than one upcoming MMO in 2011, however, and lately I have been taking a look at a new game that is not your traditional type of MMORPG.
I'm talking about the new PvP-oriented game MicroVolts. It’s not your usual generic fantasy hack-and-slash with shiny magic spells. It’s a Massively Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter (MMOTPS). You can read more about it in my earlier post.
Both Faxion Online and MicroVolts seem to be going for the PvP crowd and it's going to be interesting to see if they succeed. That's a tough crowd to please!
On the other hand, some of the people who worked on Shadowbane are also working on Faxion Online. I'm thinking that the fans of Shadowbane who have been looking for a new PvP game since it closed down are probably thrilled to see the dev team make another combat-oriented MMORPG.
