Fallen Earth open beta next week

Launch nears for "Mad Max" MMO.

Fallen Earth - an independently-developed post-apocalyptic PC MMO set in a Mad Max-style society living in the Grand Canyon - will go into open beta next Monday, 17th August.

According to the official announcement, you'll be able to register to take part and download the client at Fileplanet from 5pm UK time this Friday, 14th August.

Fallen Earth boasts a classless, skill-based advancement system, detailed crafting and a first-person shooter gameplay style. We saw it at GDC back in March and liked the setting, but thought the execution was rather rough-and-ready. It will be interesting to see how it's come on in the last few months.
