Otherland opens its early access doors today

Does Otherland hold potential to be an immersive MMO? Fans today will get to find out as the title opens up its early access testing on Steam.

The sci-fi MMO is adopting a buy-to-play model, and as such players will have to fork over some cash (at least $20) to get into early access testing. According to the developers, the game is mostly feature complete, with early access taking the place of open beta instead of being a repackaged alpha test. The team is asking for help during early access to track down bugs and to judge whether the combat balancing is too easy.

To find out more about Otherland, read our recent first impressions of the title and then watch the early access trailer after the break.

Update: Note that the game appears to be region-locked to the US and Europe. With thanks to our commenters for clarifying this.

scathson Actually PvP is entirely consensual outside of one zone (Hackers Zone). You can flag yourself for PvP anywhere though.

Got it and pretty impressed so far. Animations and world are both top notch.  Combat needs a bit of work.  Pretty great for ranged right now, but melee can get stuck easily and you cant just autoattack in front of you even with AE weapons unless you have locked onto a target.
As an Aussie I had to jump on the Asian server (100 ping!), because the ping of >300 on the US made it unplayable, which is a bit odd because I can play with 300 ping in other games without too much drama.

This game isn’t getting very good first impressions on Steam…I will wait for a sale (more than the current 15% off) or closer to final release and check it again.

The graphics caught my attention. I think I’ll have a look at the game and see what features it has.

That wasn’t the point of my comparison. Rather a sci-fi story about fantasy world in a virtual environment…some seemed to be confused with this notion.

Nordavind Farscape was a fun show, a mix of serious sci-fi and over the top craziness and Scorpius was a great villain. Great actors too. :P

Played the beta. It’s definitely unfinished. It’s been in development hell for a while
