latest news blurb features some good news for fans of the the firm's long-running Wurm Online
sandbox MMO. The game's new epic cluster
is officially set to debut on October 28th, and lead developer Rolf Jansson
is among those psyched about the launch date. "The epic code is something I've been working on for several years, and it feels really good to finally release it," he says.
Epic's aim is to "provide the players with a full circle of purpose and something really big to strive for," according to the Wurm
website. The cluster features warring gods duking it out on the moon of Valrei, and players who complete missions (and multi-mission arcs called scenarios) will set dramatic events in motion.
What kinds of dramatic events? The release mentions terraforming events tied to volcanoes as well as the chance for players to become demigods and possibly even full deities complete with their own religion and a stake in the celestial battle royal.
