Fallen Earth is a free post apocalyptic game similar to Fallout 4

It’s year 2156 and the world as we know it has been destroyed by nuclear and bio-chemical weapons. Thanks to a company named LifeNet, which holds samples of human DNA, your body has just been regenerated using the bio signature left in the LifeNet databases. If the unfortunate happens and you get killed, it will simply repeat the process. All the players, like you, are essentially clones built by LifeNet which is an automated (and abandoned) system ran by artificial intelligence. It’s up to the players to survive in this free open world MMO called Fallen Earth.

Massive 1000 square kilometers of open world

While most of the earth is an inhabitable wasteland filled with lethal radiation, you still have a massive 1000 square kilometers of mysterious open world to explore. The action takes place in the Grand Canyon which is probably the only habitable place left on the entire planet. Looters and scavengers as well as horribly mutated animals are roaming the lands and it’s especially dangerous outside the villages. If you’re not careful and don’t plan your route well, you might end up stumbling on a bandit’s camp which will most likely end badly for you.

Craft your own weapons, ammunition and tools

If you’re extra lucky, you might even stumble upon a fruit that’s not poisonous due to radiation. The game has a ton of skills and abilities which help you progress further. For example, by advancing your cooking skill, you can cook better food that heals you faster. Or you can concentrate more on crafting weapons and ammunition which you can either use yourself to loot villages and camps, or you can simply sell the stuff you craft and become a traveling merchant instead. Over 95% of the items found in-game are player crafted and since the game is completely classless, you can play it exactly as you like- there are no limitations whatsoever.

The best free post apocalyptic game

While many players are continuously arguing that the game isn’t as great as, for example, the infamous Fallout 4, it still beats every similar game out there simply because it’s free. In fact it’s probably the only free to play post apocalyptic MMO currently available! It’s true that the game has a few bugs here and there and the developers team isn’t really working that hard on making this game better, but it has grown exponentially over the last few years which in turn has made it a lot harder to manage for the guys who are pretty much working on the game out of the goodness of their hearts. There is of course an expansion pack available, but I’m not really seeing a lot of demand for it right now.

In conclusion I can say that if you aren’t ready to purchase Fallout 4, then the next best thing in line is definitely Fallen Earth, but before you jump in and start playing, you might want to check out other games like Fallout 4 on Games Like Zone.

The Free to Play Post Apocalyptic MMO

So I was just looking around the Steam store for good games to play one day when I came across this game called Fallen Earth.

At first I didn’t really think much of it because I was actually looking for games similar to Silent Hill and Alan Wake which are both horror survival games- the genre that I enjoy the most.

For reasons unknown to me, I decided on downloading and installing the game, it was free after all! After about 10 minutes or so I was finally able to get in the game and into the action…

When the game starts you are thrown into a post apocalyptic world where Anarchy reigns and nobody is safe anywhere in the world. Not only that, but you will soon realize that you are in fact simply a clone and when you die, your bio signature is stored in a network called LifeNet that helps you regenerate your body directly from the DNA in LifeNet databases. Pretty cool, huh? Something like this has been one of my dreams in real life… so of course I was able to relate immediately!

 

Fallen Earth’s own description of the game

 

It’s 2156, and the world has been destroyed by both nuclear and bio-chemical means. Your story takes place in one of the few habitable places left in the world, the Grand Canyon. As a clone with an uncertain past, your job is survival in a world now built on destruction, betrayal and fragile factional alliances.

 

After a brief tutorial where they show you what is possible in the game you will be teleported somewhere in the game. I’m not entirely sure if the location is different to everyone or not, but I was able to choose where I will spawn and I found that the enemies in that area were pretty weak. So I’m not sure if I just picked a good spot or what… but it doesn’t really matter.

 

What’s really awesome about this game is the fact that it has an open world that’s free to roam and discover right from the start!

 

See the screenshot up there? You can visit every mountain top and valley that you can see in the horizon. There are a lot of items, junk metal, herbs, fruits and all sorts of other cool stuff for you to collect and you can even murder everyone in one of those small camps they have all over the world and just loot their corpses for awesome gear. A dream come true for sure, heh.

 

Oh and there are a lot of mutated animals running around. For example take a look at the chicken in Fallen Earth

Crafting and building stuff

 

Yeah so in the game you can make pretty much everything you need to survive. All you have to do is find the necessary required items for any particular thing you need to create and you have to have enough intelligence and experience to actually craft it. You can gain experience by killing enemies (obviously), by looting medical cabinets, by scavenging stuff lost in the desert, digging out old graves and so on. The possibilities in this game are astronomical.

 

I just got myself a horse by the way. It makes traveling around the world much easier. I have seen people drive cars around but Gasoline is very expensive in this game… how the hell do they get so rich?

 

Conclusion

 

It’s just an awesome game. What more can I say?

 

If you need to find me in game then I am called Ynef there too… You can send me a letter through one of those in game mailboxes that are pretty neat.
