Fallen Earth is a free-to-play MMORPG set on an Earth where the population has very nearly been wiped out from a rampant virus and nuclear war. The game takes place in and around the Grand Canyon (now known as Grand Canyon Province), one of only two known places on the planet where humans exist. Players take on the role of a neutral survivor amidst six competing factions, and may either choose to join a faction or remain neutral in order to persevere through the wild, mutated landscape of the game.
FE opts to follow a classless system, so players have more freedom with the skills they employ with their characters. The majority of the skills come by mutations, either from the Shiva Virus, or from nuclear radiation. Players will contend for resources through fighting a variety of foes, such as bandits, raider gangs, mutated critters, and the deadly environment itself.
The May Producer's Letter has been published on the Fallen Earth site. In it, the news is announced that the player created town called The Outpost is now live on the public test server and that the team is actively working on stability and getting it prepped for inclusion in the full game.
The Outpost is set to bring something entirely new to Fallen Earth. The March State of the Game letter allows the team behind the town's creation to show off several interesting teaser screens and artwork. According to Marie Croall, the town will be similar to the Citadel, but larger with more robust features.
The Fallen Earth team has taken to Twitter to let players and fans know that the login server has been shut down due to a series of DDoS attacks. No further information has been released or any indication that servers are back up at this point. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
The latest Fallen Earth progress report shows off some of the things that players can expect to find in the game during the holiday season. Fans can get a look at several screenshots and also get a bit of a peak at what the team will be working on next.
