Most of you have heard of FreeWorld, a small MMORPG in development for several years at MindSurge Entertainment. Recently, they contacted us with some odd news. They'd thrown the game out!
What does this mean? FreeWorld: Portal Apocalypse. This is not a sequel. This is not a redesign. This is basically a whole new game from the same company. We explore what this means in this new Q&A with CEO Clyde Bielss and have re-debuted the game on our list.
| MMORPG.com: Just what is FreeWorld?
Clyde Bielss: I guess the question here would be, “What WAS FreeWorld?” We have publicly announced the cancellation of the original FreeWorld and the birth of the 100% new MMO “FreeWorld: Apocalypse Portal“. This new version, though it still holds the FreeWorld name, is not a sequel to the old game; it’s a completely new game. We have taken everything from the old game, tossed it aside and started from scratch. This new MMO will have some similarities to the first FreeWorld, but even as we speak the engine is being redesigned from the ground up to improve graphic quality and game play. Everything from the combat mechanics and monster AI to the skills and quest systems are being rethought and implemented with new ideas. We hope to have a test phase for this new build starting in the next few months.
