This is the best looking game since AOC. I has seamless gameplay due to the Unreal engine (the one that gears of war / unreal tournament uses)

I am excited bout this game, I will be preordering it asap when its released, this game looks amazing...

I'm very excited about this game. I'm also glad they decided to go with the Unreal engine, it really is an incredibly optimized engine that will do wonders for an MMORPG.

wow unreal engine....... i really want to see a non instance battle with 100 or more ppl around with mounts too thats not a slide show then i ll believe that unreal engine works for mmorpgs. As for the pretty scenery well AOC was a marvel to everyone's eyes but then ppl started to play .......need to say more?

Having worked with the Unreal Engine (on a project that was canned, for a company that went bankrupt), I don't have high hopes for it working in something as open-ended as an MMO. Especially one that aspires to huge battles.

I really found it better suited to single-player or non-massively-multiplayer games, where the designer can keep a lid on how many actors were active at a time.

But, to be fair, that was a few years ago, an earlier version of the engine.. maybe they've made some advances.

I believe Vanguard uses the unreal 3 engine. Though that's a bad example :). The game, while fun, is still kind of clunky.

Did not seem to work extremely well with vanguard. Alot of people seemed to say it worked well with spellborn. That was 2.5 this is unreal 3 so might be a difference. Also seamless world should be interesting.

This game has alot of interesting features and is not a copy of darkfall. Where darkfall is all about city sieges and massive massive battles this game does shoot lower small scale conflict.

It does want sieging, but they are up in the air with player cities or not. I think instead they wish to have a city control system tied to non destructable player housing mixed with destructable forts.

They are also implementing a UO faction like system and an interesting religious system that corresponds with PvP.

"Mortal Online is the new PvP MMO that everyone's squeeing about -- one that's set up to attempt to out Darkfall, well, Darkfall."

That won't be hard...
