Abstract Era Entertainment announces new sandbox MMO Seconds from Silence


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’s no indication of how far into development the game is, nor is there any mention of a prospective release date, and we haven’t been able to dig up much on the studio either. However, interested players can sign up for an account on the game’s official website to be kept apprised of new developments, and as a bonus, anyone who registers during the “special promotional period” (the duration of which is unspecified) will receive three free months of game subscription credit upon the game’s launch. To recap, they’re basically asking for MMO player email addresses in exchange for the promise of free premium time in the distant future. You can decide whether that’s worth it for you or not, but yeah maybe read that privacy policy and use a burner email account.

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.
