I’m really getting excited about 38 Studios’ RPG.Â I was refreshing the official website all morning while it was my turn to watch the new puppy and I refreshed it the exact second the trailer came up and they changed websites.Â Yeah, no life.Â The trailer did not disappoint me.
It’s only a trailer but it does make two things clear. 1) There’s a story and 2) It’s going to be action packed. It goes along nicely with what they stated their game would be like in the press release two days ago.
The official site is also up with just a sprinkle of information.Â The screenshots look great.Â The music is also well done.Â Â Maybe the most important thing is that they’ve clarified even more in their FAQ about how Amalur is the setting for Copernicus.Â Also pay close attention to the ‘immortality’ part of the story and how it will play into explaining why players in their MMO do not die.Â Pretty cool idea.
Keeping it consistent in one universe is EXACTLY what they should be doing.Â Â Â They’ve accomplished something today and that’s getting me excited about a future title.Â Games aren’t exciting me as much as they used to and it’s nice when one finally does.
Now I just have to stomach the fact that we’re a year away from release at the earliest.
