Swedish developer StarVault has announced a launch date for its MMO Mortal Online. The game will go live on 9th June.
That's according to the latest newsletter (via Massively), which notes that the technical problems of the beta - notably a "desync" issue - have now been resolved. Mortal Online was delayed from a planned March launch to address these problems.
Mortal Online is a sandbox fantasy MMO focusing on player interaction, with totally unrestricted player-versus-player combat and full looting. You can read more about it in our hands on report from early this year.
A sandbox fantasy MMO seems an unlikely prospect in today's landscape. And it is. Nevertheless, Mortal Online has wandered over the horizon without a second glance at current trends. It's an open-ended fantasy MMO where player interaction - not PvE - is at the forefront, powered by Unreal 3, talking about the good old days. It's a strange sight.
Freshly formed developer Star Vault has whipped the wrappers off its PC MMO, Mortal Online.
It is fantasy-themed, boasting no character levels and a hardcore, player versus player focus.
Star Vault bills Mortal Online as a realistic "sandbox" experience where you shape the world through you actions.
