Amalur MMO "Project Copernicus" revealed in trailer

It's been a crazy few days for 38 Studios as they try to figure out how to stay afloat, but amid all the chaos they accidentally revealed the launch date for their MMO Project Copernicus. Well, to be technical it wasn't 38 Studios that leaked that info, but rather the governor of Rhode Island (opens in new tab), amusingly enough.

The world looks fairly compelling at least. We're just wondering whether 38 Studios was thinking, "well, we might as well show the fans the game now that they know the release date." Or if they were thinking, "we'd better release this video to try to attract some investors." Either way, we're hoping this game ends up being fully funded. Gaming can always use more beautiful virtual worlds.
