Otherland enters early access on Steam on August 26th

I just don't know any more, really.

It was announced years ago, has jumped developers and publishers, and by and large seems like the sort of thing that was never going to come out. But Otherland is indeed coming out on August 26th. Granted, it’s only “coming out” in the sense of an Early Access launch on Steam, but that’s still far more than fans of the original novels have likely expected for the past few years.

Otherland is an action MMO offering housing, an “eDNA” system allowing players to copy and clone items, and a variety of different game environments to explore. You can see exactly what the game will play like on the 26th for yourself if the top-level overview has you intrigued, or if you just loved the books and can’t wait to see the virtual worlds made… well, not real, but virtually explorable at least.

Skipping Open Beta so they can cash in on some fools wanting to try the game early. Probably gonna work aswell.

Feodor Sounds like a closed beta to me!

Even if they gave you 20 bucks to play it, you would still think it’s a total waste of money.

Don’t get your hopes up. The game is really rough and unfinished based on my experience in the closed beta.

Since I have never heard of this IP, could someone who has read the books give me a quick rundown of what the story is about?

This was totally off my radar, but looks pretty good.  The world itself definitely looks like it would be worth checking out.
