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?
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.
