Earthrise is a game that has definitely appeared on the radar of many MMOG players. The apocalyptic, futuristic theme pits players against one another with no factions standing in the way. Remember how hardcore Ultima Online was? Well Earthrise hopes to bring back the player killers, criminals, and powerful guilds that came from that type of game play. This past year at GDC, Ten Ton Hammer spoke to the team and got the chance to find out about the game's hardcore approach to a sandbox environment. The team at Masthead Studios met with them at Leipzig this summer to explain a little more about what is going on with Earthrise and why players should be paying attention.
