Shh, do you hear that? That’s the sound of a new MMORPG, as this week fledgling studio Abstract Era Entertainment announced the existence of its in-development title Seconds from Silence. Described as “a moddable action based [MMORPG],” Seconds from Silence is a fantasy sandbox that aims to “simulate living a life in a medieval fantasy world where the laws of the land are governed by the players that own them.”
The game claims to offer players complete freedom to forge their own roles in the world, from mercenaries, thieves, blacksmiths, and alchemists to paladins, pirates, vampires, and vampire hunters. Seconds from Silence cites the Elder Scrolls and Witcher series as inspirations, and it promises players varied opportunities to shape the world around them by constructing their own houses, camps, and castles or politicking for power over cities, guilds, and even entire kingdoms.
There doesn’t seem to be much else to share for the time being, but you can get a peek at a handful of screenshots and read a bit more about the game’s planned features over at the official site.
