Fallen Earth’s reconstruction continues slowly but surely – check out the new screenshots

After Fallen Earth was taken offline last fall, players considered the odds pretty low that Little Orbit would be able to redeem its word by rebuilding and re-releasing the post-apocalyptic MMORPG. While that hasn’t happened quite yet, the odds are looking a little better this week thanks to an update from the studio’s CEO Matt Smith.

Smith is up-front about the project being somewhat lower in the studio’s priority list right now but promises that Fallen Earth “isn’t loved any less” among the team members. “The team is excited to get back into the Wastelands, so we can get you guys the game you deserve too,” he wrote. “We are still very much in the early, exploratory phase of development where we were testing various solutions to each system that needs to be ported.”

He then went on to give a short-term roadmap for the revamp of the notoriously buggy game, including an effort to recreate the terrain, add terrain texture layers, render foliage, fix imported assets, work on the code to assemble character bodies, get a basic movement prototype going, and stream terrain and objects. When all that is done, there will be an internal test to see how it all functions.

Smith also provided several work-in-progress screenshots to show “assembled terrain, buildings, objects and props for the entire world:”

I feel like the game really has to be remade from the ground up and we’ll get the same art assets, so most of the changes will be code-wise.

Not that i am complaining. Matt was right: It was an awful experience if they wanted to monetize it. The game was suffering with tech issues.

I was pretty much convinced that we’d never hear about this project again after the game went offline last October. It feels really good to be wrong about that.

Never in my life I’ve wanted a studio to succeed with update as much as with APB / Fallen Earth (except for “space legs” in EVE maybe).

Hopefully, it’ll be a story of LittleOrbit that could.

They just have to make sure the casinos stay in operation this time around!

Even with all the bugs and lag issues, I loved Fallen Earth, they nailed the post-apocalyptic atmosphere imo.

Yeah they definitely nailed the atmosphere imo, I was sucked right into it and the only reason I stopped playing shortly after launch was due to all the issues.
