Funny flamethrower

The Stargate Worlds website has a nice video podcast where they talk about the flamethrower weapon they intend to introduce in the game. Excellent to see that they put some humour  into it 😉

The Chronicles of Spellborn finally has a release date

September 20, 2008 1 comment

It seems that the folks at Spellborn now decided that it is time to release their game, The Chronicles of Spellborn. The release date is set to November 27th. 

This is what they have agreed with the European publisher, Frogster. It seems that the aim is to have the same date for those on the other side of the Atlantic as well, but they need still to sort that out with Acclaim.

Release dates are slippery when it comes to MMORPGs, but I think there is a good chance that they will keep this date. It is only a bit more than 2 months away and they have not thrown around release date that much before. 

If the game turns out to be pretty good I do not think it will be a big hit right from the start. Rather I think this might be the kind of game that may grow slowly, a bit on the side from the big hyped games. Perhaps a bit like EVEs growth. Which I think it quite fine, a nice alternative to big media and hyped releases of other games.
