•Tabula Rasa (WMV, 11.3MB)- right-click to download
Thursday 11 May 2006
Despite sounding like something spicy fashioned from chickpeas and wholesome hummus, Tabula Rasa is in fact one of the brightest, noisiest and most impressive looking things in the Concourse Hall. Just right-click on the link above to download the movie and see for yourself - it's got more bangs than watching the whole of WWII on fast forward.
Created by Richard Garriott and the chaps behind groundbreaking Ultima, Tabula Rasa is an MMORPG that catapults you across space and into a frantic battle to save the universe from the Bane. But what the plot lacks in innovation, the gameplay makes up for in pace. For, along with the high-tech weaponry, you have access to alien-granted powers far beyond other humans'.
Not that your path is entirely pre-set, as your character can flirt with any skill branch without being railroaded on to one, fight alone or as part of a unit communicating via voice commands, or steal huge mechs to crush all beneath your metal feet.
So immerse yourself in the footage and we'll be back soon with more news on this adventurous and explosive MMORPG.
