Tabula Rasa - closed beta news

There’s been a lot of hype aboutRichard Garriott’supcoming MMO, Tabula Rasa. Its out-of-this-world sci-fi setting - which stands in contrast to the ocean of high fantasy WoW clones on the market - and its untraditional combat scheme - that introduces a mix between first-person shooters and traditional MMO gameplay - piqued our interest when we first scouted out the title.

Each new player will start out as a recruit with basic firearms skills and access to Tabula Rasa’s mysterious Logos powers. But as you level up, you’ll get to explore several career paths as you climb the military chain of command, allowing you to specialize in everything from handiness at hacking through security doors to blowing stuff up with big ass guns. But until recently, information on the most elite tier 4 classes has been sparse.

That’s why we’re excited to bring you the first round of news from behind the curtain of Tabula Rasa’s closed beta with details on its never before seen tier 4 classes and skills. These classes are the most powerful units in the game, and their specialized skills will be what forward-looking players should be studying as they decide what kind of soldier they’d like to build. It should be noted that since these details come from the closed beta, there’s the chance that these classes and skills may be revised or even removed entirely before the final game releases later this year.
