Anyone plays this game?
It's a mix between a MMO and a strategy game, dubbed "Game of thrones meets EVE Online". Its founders are J Todd Coleman (Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Sims Online). They have raised nearly $30M to realize their vision, with 330,000 registered users.
What's different in Crowfall:
Free city building: every player can build their own city in the Eternal Kingdoms
The focus on strategy elements: caravans, territory conquest, crafting, fortifications, politics, war
Unique and temporary worlds: procedurally generated maps that "end" when victory conditions are met
Different ways to win: through Glory (quests from the gods), Power (PvP and sieging), and Wealth (crafting and building)
Seasons and day / night cycle: every world is dynamic and shows the passage of time
The game will enter its Beta phase this year, and anybody who registers a free account can participate to it.
