Face of Mankind: Fall of the Dominion announces beta
With the exception of the Runescape Old School server, it's rare to see an original, classic mmorpg successfully revive itself, but it seems like NeXeon Technologies are acheiving the impossible....twice.
Face of Mankind was one of the longest stretching projects of the early millennials; first emerging in 2004 it bobbed in and out of beta tests, launching in 2006, collapsing slowly into 2008 revived again in 2009 and then fading into the background again over recent years.
Then, in May, last year, an ominous Kickstarter campaign was initiated for the Rasputin of mmo games, promising a new hope in Face of Mankind: Fall of the Dominion. The newly revamped iteration punched through its $50,000 kickstarter goal and they have now returned from the drawing boards with news of a Face of Mankind: Fall of the Dominion open beta. The beta will begin on April 18th, and is hoping to see a swarm of players enter, to test and help balance the vast, persistent universe that promises "limitless potential" to its inhabitants.
The sci-fi mmorpg will jump between first and third person interaction and offers open PvP, skill-based combat growth, a significant amount of cause-and-effect from each individual players' decisions and a bunch of "true sandbox" features; from crafting and exploring to upgrading and customizing personal spaces.
