The lights are on
The video for the upcoming free-to-play MMO reveals the denizens of the smoldering volcano that hangs over the city.
Hot on the heels of last week’s trailer, the team over at Cryptic and Perfect World delivers another look at the game in action, this time detailing the adventure area known as Mount Hotenow. Players will confront the challenge of the fire giants who live in the volcanic mountain, and work to thwart the giants’ plans to reawaken the slumbering primordial far beneath the mountain.
Check out the trailer below.

I'm interested in this game because I've been invested in the lore for this game from reading R.A. Salvatore for years. I'll probably try it out, but there are so many MMOs now that it's so hard to want to invest time in them without something that stands out from the rest.
@Mailros: I don't fall into either of the categories that you mention. I have never played WoW. Of course I know of it, but never bothered to play it. Back when it came out I was already playing SWG and was very happy with it and now that SWG was shutdown in 2011. Now-a-days I only play DCUO and SWTOR. I might play Neverwinter cause its the first fantasy game to catch my attention, mainly because it has action combat. So your Wow logic is flawed severely.
After seeing the beta in action, I have to say it's pretty impressive for a Free to Play game. I like the world it takes place in, and the combat seems engaging enough to keep me interested.
Hotenow? Hot-now? Sort of a lame name for a volcano.
This game does look pretty cool though, for being free to play. I'll probably check it out.
This looks really good, and very fun. But I'ma be honest with you Cryptic. Every single one of these games - 4-player parties, online co-op, realtime combat style MMO's - is just a time killer until Phantasy Star Online 2 arrives. Maybe I'll give this a look-see when it comes out... but really, I'm just waiting until I can get my MAG on again :)
Nice. This game looks good.
I hope this game isnt as bad as the narrator's voice acting.
Anyway its not like im going to play this for i swore an oath to never partake in a MMO again.
This game looks promising.
This game looks promising. Might check this game out.
Very nice trailer!
I want to like games like this. But It looks like it will play and look like every other MMO/action MMO ever.
