Mankind struggles for survival in Earthrise: First Impact, the sci-fi mmorpg shooter developed by SilentFuture UG. In a distant future, the Earth suffered a terrible catastrophe as a meteor shower rained destruction upon the planet. Later on, a new type of crystal was discovered within the meteors and those crystals had intriguing properties. This new crystal became the central source of energy for the Earth and entire industries were created around it. It was too late that it was realized that the crystals had a devastating impact as it converted oxygen into a poisonous substance that cause living beings to mutate. Now most of humanity is infertile and the race only survives via a cloning facility on the moon. The Earth is covered with dangerous, mutated creatures and large corporations now control most territory. There is constant conflict over scarce resources and over who has power.
Earthrise: First Impact has a great deal of sandbox gameplay as players can truly create the characters that they wish and player crafting is a necessity in the game. The skill system in the game is free and open, meaning players can choose what skills they want to increase without regards to being forced to only being able to take certain class skills. Players can increase their skills as much as they want as there is no max skill level in the game. By being able to select what skills they want, a player can choose any role or specialization that they wish. While there are plenty of weapon skills, players can also choose different crafting skills and device abilities to increase their versatility.
Players can join one of eight separate factions in Earthrise: First Impact or choose to remain a lone wolf. Each faction has their own agenda and the dynamics between the factions are dynamic and can shift dramatically. There are plenty of dynamic missions, quest chains, and epic boss fights to be found throughout the game world. Players can also cruise around in both civilian and military vehicles to explore and to fight.
Crafting is a large component in Earthrise: First Impact. Items decay over time so you will have to replace your equipment eventually. You can purchase gear from an NPC vendor or from another player or you can craft your own gear. Player crafted gear will tend to have better stats than NPC gear. Almost anything in the game can be crafted and the higher a player's crafting skill, the better the final item will be. Players can also modify their weapons in a number of ways such as increasing damage or improving weapon quality. Players can also spend experience to upgrade weapons as well.
Player-versus-player is a big factor in this free mmorpg. The entire world of Earthrise: First Impact is open for PvP, so players will need to keep their eyes open and be prepared for a fight at any time. The danger is even greater in that the game has friendly fire so your best bud could accidentally shoot you in the back. Watch where you're pointing your weapon! If you get dropped in PvP, you could lose items that will be looted by your opponents. There is a karma system in place though to discourage players from becoming too obnoxious. The game is free to play with microtransactions for features such as additional character slots and will not be pay-to-win.
