Mortal Online devs will launch Mortal Royale to Steam early access today

    
18

So here’s a thing that did not exactly make my list of favorite trends this year: MMOs transparently courting the battle royale market with sidegames. However, when they keep it “massive,” I mind it a whole lot less, and that’s exactly what Mortal Online developer Star Vault is up to with Mortal Royale, which hits Steam early access at 1 p.m. EST today (beating Daybreak’s PlanetSide Arena to the “1000 players” achievement).

“Based of our MMO technology we now bring ‘massive’ into the battle royale genre with matches that support up to 1000 players on a single server! Everything from the size of the playing area to timers and loot dynamically changes to best fit the amount of players in the battle. Find and tame mounts to give you not only speed but a powerful advantage on the battlefield. Scavenge the lands for armor, weapons, bows and powerful magic to execute the unworthy and stand as the final surviving champion when the storms finally ends.”

The Steam page is promising a free-to-play business model, giant map, mounted combat, and “ancestry character customization.”

There are aspects of the way MO works that might make a BR mode interesting, but the game is too janky to be able to spin it off into a serious deathmatch type of experience.

Best case scenario would be this game finds a moderate audience and makes a moderate amount of cash (which they could really use), but if that happened they would have to spend most of that money supporting the BR game and maintenance mode-ing the MMO.

So, a bad game mixed with a bad fad.

Hey, go for it, i’m sure it’ll be successful!

Put cheese on a German Chocolate cake. Make a video, put it on Youtube and link it here. I want to see your face when you take a bite.

There’s actually a modality of creppe here in Brazil where they put cinnamon, chocolate and cheese.

It’s called Romeo and Juliet.

Probably because it’s better to drink poison.

You made me remember something I’ve always known but just plain forgot in this thread. People around the world love to eat different things and genuinely think they taste great. Vegemite is a prime example. I’ve always wanted to try a Vegemite sandwich due to eh Men at Work song “Down Under”. I worked with a lady from Australia that went back for vacation and brought me some back. When I hear that song now I cringe having now tasted Vegemite.

The more of these that are released – the less I’m interested in ever trying them out. Each one falling over themselves to be less original than the two successful ones.

1000 players on a single server? I think they’re being overly optimistic about their player numbers. How many people are actively playing Mortal Online?

I cannot be the only person that had a WTF moment … why another BR? + Ashes of creation has a lot more traction and coverage and is releasing the same in a couple of days.

While I wish the team the best of luck I do wonder if this was a good move. To be fair I didn’t even know the game was around still.

It’s actually free to install and play. But it’s Battle Shityale so I don’t really care about it.
