Hailan Rising will be the industry’s first full scale PVP-based Fantasy MMORPG developed in Unity 3D and using the Mixamo.com animation system.
GDC 2011 was too early for GamersFirst to show us the client but they promised us that at E3 we're going to get a first glimpse of this Unity3D MMO!
The team told us that players will find themselves as survivors in the post-apocalyptic fantasy world of Hailan, just as the massive flood waters that destroyed the world are receding. Players must choose to play as one of eight character classes and choose a nation to which they will pledge their allegiance. Battle between the nations force players to defend their realm in a PvP packed MMORPG played out on land, at sea and in the air.
Hailan Rising removes the traditional ‘leveling’ system and replaces it with an FPS style system of advancement. Players must power up individual combat abilities while learning new abilities from other classes.
Main features of the title include:
- The Etherea System – Players can learn any ability from classes that are foreign to their own.
- No Item Limitations – Any player may equip themselves with any item or weapon, regardless of which of the eight classes they choose to play.
- Large-Scale PVP – Open World PVP between hundreds of players can take place at any moment.
