World of Darkness MMO
Posted 02 April 2012 - 03:51 PM
I'm always a little bit skeptical of MMO's. There's only one that I've really loved, and I've played a few.
But I also *love* the World of Darkness setting, and I'd be willing to give their MMO a fair shake and then some.
Anyway, on Penny Arcade they posted an article about it, and I figured I'd share. It's some of the first real information I've seen about it.
I'm actually really excited about the prospect of the inclusion of Permadeath.
I'm a little bit disappointed that they intend to use the old World of Darkness setting, because I was really a fan of nWoD, but I think I'm mostly alone in that.
And I'm crazy excited that they are going to (eventually) include Werewolves. Holy shit am I excited about that. WoD werewolves are my freaking favorite.

I also like the idea of player controlled cities. I'd love to see that in every MMO. >.>

It makes things so much more dynamic! Cities in other MMO's get really boring.
The whole interpersonal politics thing might actually make it really fun to be a vampire, too.

It'd be very interesting to see cities taken by force and occupied as well.

I think if you want to see that sort of thing, though, then you'll probably want to get into it pretty early.
I suspect that it'll be pretty much like real life, where it's really hard to unseat someone once they accumulate enough power.
