Posted this at Ars, figured I'd drop it here, too.

Official site has beta signups and a 21 minute trailer d/l.

Youtube trailers

Official forums Q&A thread.

wikipedia

Breakdown:
  • claimed 2008 release (but is it playable?)
  • MMO based specifically around PvP
  • No leveling. Instead you improve skills to kick buttocks
  • no player names or health meters. visual and audio cues for combat
  • real-time physics including player collision

Looks nice enough graphically, wonder how it'll hold up to all their claims of stuff like 200+ player pvp w/ smooth framerates and just what kinda hardware will be needed to make that happen (if that's even possible). Hopefully they don't put system reqs beyond an 8800GT or it might be like a Crysis MMO.

    ...yah, we were promised a PA guild spot for the beta. In 2005. Still waiting for that one.

    To me, this is another Shadowbane in the making. Promises the moon, ends up delivering cheese.

    Just like Shadowbane, it has the potential to be really slick...but it also has the potential to be terrible, bug ridden and unplayable.

    Goddamnit. I spent like two hours working on a proper OP for the game and you post this.
