Game Title: OtherLand
Genre: Sci-Fi
Developer: Cybepounk
Publisher: dtp Entertainment
Status: Development

German publisher dtp Entertainment has revealed that it's working on a new MMO set in a "multiverse" of virtual realities called Otherland. Based on the science-fiction novels of the same name by Tad Williams, it's scheduled for release in 2010.

Otherland - detailed in a full preview on Eurogamer takes place in a near future where the super-rich have their own private virtual worlds on the net, peopled both by AI, and unwitting humans who don't know that what they're experiencing isn't real.

The game takes place entirely in virtual reality as players travel across a varied series of worlds, with themes ranging from mythology, science-fiction and fantasy, to historical, contemporary and cartoon settings. The appearance of players' avatars will alter as they go, and the game worlds will change dynamically around them.

There will be scope for co-operative gameplay and player-versus-player conflict, as well as a wide variety of casual and social minigames in a hub area called Lambda Mall.

Gameplay details are still largely under wraps, but the core of the game will revolve around your ability to gather information, and manipulate the "code" that dictates the appearance and properties of your avatar and the world around you.

To make Otherland, dtp has funded the creation of a new multinational studio in Singapore called Real U. The studio is headed by Andrew Carter, formerly of Melbourne House, and formed around core talent from the long-lived Australian developer.

The game runs on a modified version of Unreal Engine 3, and is aiming to set new technical standards for MMOs.

a great article. your and my experience does not have much differences and i also like enjoying the game's sorroundings and doing quest with a group of people but having too much botters and cheaters really destroys my gaming experience.

Aion, as Beautiful as Before, Is Different to Me Now

Personally, I found Final fantasy XI to be a big let down. The pace of the game is so tedious. Being a big fan of the whole series on consoles- i expected quite a lot. However, Perhaps FFXIV may be different. F2P sounds good however a lot of riff raff usual entail with such things.

FF XIV Follow-up Report: F2P is not an Impossible Dream

Sad....Is she that godly at CS?? I doubth it. Quiting school bad move. "models for a friend" = Doing Xrated things and degrating your self. Notice it's not a professional company. I mean honestly, if you can't even finish the basics which is (1st-12th grade) and graduate.... How much or a moron can you be??.... Her looks will fade, her hands will develop artritis and she will either get pregnant or catch an STD and end up working a dead end shitty job living with her parents. But this is after the whole CS thing blows up in her face.
