Richard Garriot's "clean slate" goes live in
October and MegaGames has got the scoop on everything from the live Beta
to the two year time sink that went into the game's original (and
scrapped) design. For those of you living under a rock, Richard Garriot
is the creator of the Ultima series – the infamous "Lord
British" who brought you the pinnacle of fantasy MMO gameplay. With
Tabula Rasa, Lord British is looking to side-step his reputation as a
king of fantasy, and revamp his image as an MMO innovator. No more orcs,
wizards, or ninjas; to hell with the typical lore-hemorrhaged plot.
Tabula Rasa is an action sci-fi shooter cross-bred with good old MMO
|Tabula Rasa - The Story|
Tabula Rasa is a massively multiplayer online action game that takes you
into the heat of battle at the frontlines of an epic war between a
xenophobic alien race bent on galactic conquest and the coalition of
rebel soldiers who’ve traveled across the galaxy to stop them.
Combining the action of a first person shooter and the immersion of a role-playing game, Tabula Rasa takes the player on an intergalactic adventure where the individual has an opportunity to significantly impact the pace of battle on a global scale. Players enter the game as rebel soldiers wielding a variety of futuristic weapons, potent demolitions and the mystical power of “Logos”. It is up to each individual to use their stealth, ingenuity and skill to assist a ragtag coalition of rebels in their efforts to stop an enemy known for its intelligence and unyielding determination to enslave the Universe.
