Has Undead Labs ever shown anything that resembles an actual game or is it all still smoke and mirrors?

@natheist it a fine line, show enough to hype but hide enough to sell the surprise

these guys are seriously starting to annoy me...

All you hear from them is how great their game is going to be, how badly every other MMO sucks and then they throw some vague stuff about their game in with some concept art...

It better be the best thing since sliced bread and the second coming of Jesus or they will not get a foot in the door.

Oh wait I forgot... It's a console ONLY MMO.... so noone cares about it anyway

@eLdritchZ -The game might not appeal to you but it has a ton of potential. It has more than enough proven development talent (Jeff Strain, James Phinney) working on it combined with an untapped Xbox 360 MMO market.

If just one percent of Xbox Live users actively play this game it will be larger than EVE Online and RIFT and be the second in the world for a subscriber based MMO. One-half of one percent of Xbox Live users would put it in the top five for subscriber based MMOs.

@HokieKC A zombie MMO would appeal to me.... if it were on the right platform... Do you really think that even 1% of Xbox players cares about an MMO? where do you think that trend to make those 10 hour long B movie experiences comes from?

Also, potential? we don't even know anything about it yet -.- there's no details on features, no gameplay footage, nothing... just some vague blabber about their awesome plans and then a whole lot of big mouth talk about how everyone else sucks...

As I said, until they show something concrete they are absolutely and completely full of it and are not worth a news post on massively imho

@HokieKC

The Xbox360 MMO market has remained untapped because Microsoft famously blocks each attempt. Square Enix has said that the only reason Final Fantasy XI made it onto Xbox Live was because the service was in its infancy and Microsoft hadn't made up its mind on policies yet.

If Undead Lab's MMO is exclusive to Xbox Live, expect it to be a lobby-based MMO rather than an open world game.

@Omali - Microsoft is the publisher for Class 3 and Class 4. Undead Labs has stated MS has given them the freedom and support to do what they want.

You can see almost immediately what he means from the guy with the thick hair and beard riding in the back of that rusty-looking 70s era pickup. Very interesting.

Yes, console MMOs do invoke a sense of horror in me. Mission accomplished?
