Whatever Happened To: The Earthrise Reboot

Earthrise was a sandbox MMORPG that some of you might vaguely recall from many, many years ago.

The game just wasn’t good, it offered manual aiming but neither the server or client performance to pull […]

Falling Out #21: Dumpster Diving

If there was ever a title for an MMO that deserved a better life, Earthrise is probably a high contender. I’m actually fairly interested in how the reboot turns out, and not just because I had the pleasure of experiencing the first run around and seeing what was a game with amazing potential be squandered […]

Of course it doesn’t help that the game comprised of little more than grinding combat and crafting, coupled with performance issues that drove away much of the user base. […]

Sandboxing: Features, Punishment, And More

I love sandbox MMOs and nothing gives me a better feeling than having a good discussion around what the genre needs to evolve. In the past, I’ve used this website to discuss my discontent with the fact that sandbox MMOs could be so much more but often devolve into random death matches with extensive crafting […]

Earthrise Shutting Down Today For A Better Tomorrow

“We did our best to revive the game in 2011, but the time was not enough to keep up with the user requirements. There is a huge interest in high quality open world sandbox MMORPGs, unfortunately the big publishers do not show any interest in the genre. It is unfortunate that low budget companies like […]

During that time you will not be able to login and play the […]
