Medieval is Just So... DoneThe search for intelligent life in the non-ancient realm
But it's causing problems for new MMPOG developers because what is familiar may no longer be new enough, different enough, to draw their $60 purchase and $10 a month for very long.
A lot of players have their hopes in Star Wars Galaxies, however. Developed by LucasArts for Sony Online Entertainment, the game will include a number of planets, space travel vehicles, a skill-based system of advancement and is developed with a new 3D game engine. In terms of graphics, the preview screenshots look right up there with the nice graphics of Dark Age of Camelot with a comparable selection of races to play.
The characters will have an opportunity to build on land, a popular feature that was until now unique to Ultima Online. The mob spawns will be dynamic, which removes the "item camping" rub that many games suffer.
