Fallen Earth Review

MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy took a deep look at the post-apocalyptic MMORPG, Fallen Earth this past week. Here is excerpt:

This Week's Game of the Week is one of two upcoming MMOs that is fast approaching its launch date and with so little time until its doors open, many players are looking for more detailed information on Global Agenda.

Being Developed by Hi-Rez Studios, Global Agenda is an MMO shooter based in a 22nd century world where player created factions struggle against each other for power. Simultaneously, they fight in opposition to a totalitarian world government bent on domination. Built on the popular and durable Unreal 3 Engine, Global Agenda promises fast-action PvP, a dynamic, player-driven world, strategy elements, robots and more!

Global Agenda blends the concept of persistent World MMORPGs with the fast paced action of a shooter and will be one of the first AAA MMOs to make that particular attempt. Over the next few weeks, keep your eyes peeled for inside beta report from the game as our own Bill Murphy is checking it out leading up to launch.
