Fallen Earth breaks away from traditional MMO style

There are a lot of fantasy based MMOs on the market right now, but developers Fallen Earth have made the first real step out of this trend and produced an MMO based in a post-apocalyptic future – with guns and explosives the main course of the day. Will this game result in more and more sci-fi based MMOs like DUST 514?

Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, Final Fantasy XI, World of Warcraft, Guild Wars – all these MMOs share one feature; they are all based in a fantasy world of swords and spells. So it was inevitable that a developer somewhere would think to themselves, after watching something like Star Wars (coincidentally there is an Old Republic MMO coming out soon), why all the fantasy? And tada, Fallen Earth.
