Shadowbane First Look
10:02 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The Corporation has taken a quick first look at Shadowbane, an upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online RPG from Wolfpack Studios. News on Shadowbane has been relatively quiet as of late, though trust us that noone at IMG has forgotten about this intriguing title. It will be the first Everquest-like MMORPG to make it to the Mac, a development awaited eagerly by Mac RPG fans. It will also feature many improvements over the current titles in that genre. Here's an excerpt on guilds, an integral part of the game:
As a part of the guild system, players will be able to join or form their own guilds, build cities complete with taverns and weapon halls, conquer nations through sieges that will last real-time days, fall to the hand of their enemies or beg for mercy, and run lemonade stands on all the major roads. Due to being guild-oriented, Wolfpack feels that there will be a lot more accountability and consequence for one's actions because no longer is it "some guy randomly PKed me and ran off". Now it's "some guy from the Lords of Chaos guild PKed me and ran off--let's declare war!"Shadowbane is still in development, but they are hoping for an early 2001 release. Check out the official web page for more on the game.
