A Paizo anunciou ontem a criação do seu MMORPG, o Pathfinder Online. O desenvolvimento será por uma nova empresa, criada para isso, a Goblin Works.
A CEO, Lisa Stevens, afirma que o jogo será algo diferente dos MMORPG de fantasia tradicionais:
“A lot of big picture work has already been done on Pathfinder Online, and it’s going to be a bit different from your traditional fantasy MMO. It’s going to focus around the characters you create, in a world that will grow out of your interactions, developing the way you choose to develop it. It takes place in the River Kingdoms of Golarion, with our own Kingmaker Adventure Path providing some of the inspiration. There will be an overarching storyline, and dungeons aplenty to explore, but where Pathfinder Online is going to thrive is in the ability of each of you to leave your mark on the world. Do you want to build a castle that you own and control? Go for it. Want to start a town and rally folks to your banner? Do that. Do you want to ally with the neighboring villages to form a new nation—or perhaps wage war on them instead? The choice is yours. Want to become the most feared bandit in the River Kingdoms? The path is available. Want to become the greatest armorer that Golarion has ever seen? All it takes is hard work. If you can imagine doing something in the world of Golarion, we want you to be able to do that in Pathfinder Online.”
Pra mim, isso lembra bastante o antigão Ultima Online, mas posso estar enganado.
De qualquer forma, sempre gosto de jogos novos, mesmo que não sejam a revolução do mundo.
