Otherland is an action-packed Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game based on Tad Williamss highly acclaimed novels. Embark on exciting adventures in a virtual multiverse with several diverse worlds ranging from fantasy to sci-fi. Built on the Unreal-engine, the Otherland MMO features beautiful graphics, action-based combat with direct controls, PVE and PVP, a rich storyline and complex RPG character development with four classes and numerous skills. The game’s unique virtual reality setting brings several innovative features. The eDNA System, for instance, allows you to craft and clone both Items and NPCs to help you protect your virtual apartment or play a part in clan wars.

A unique virtual universe
Otherland is a network of virtual worlds with completely different graphic styles! This allows for an incredible variety in landscapes, NPCs, outfits and weapons. Shop, trade or just hang out in the Bars of the futuristic Lambda Mall. Fight other players in the Hacker Zone, join the medieval war of EightSquared, uncover secrets on Mars, fight fearsome creatures on Bugworld or explore the Chinese-themed FiveIsles... Each world is filled with numerous quests, connected by a rich backstory presented as a sequel to the novels.

Breathtaking Graphics
Visually stunning landscapes, gorgeous environments, smooth effects and incredibly detailed characters all created on Unreal Engine.

Action-based Combat
Combat in Otherland feels more like an fighting in an action game than in a classic MMORPG. Aiming directly, moving with WASD and using your mouse to look around and control directions contribute to that feeling. Yet, you need to use Skills and Items wisely to defeat your enemies.

Character Customization
Based on four classes, Otherland bursts with an astonishingly wide variety of character customizations. Heights from tiny to huge, morphologies going fromthin to muscular, and the ability to wear anything and everything you find will give you the chance to find your own truly unique look in the Multiverse.

Every item and NPC in Otherland is made out of electronic DNA. After defeating opponents, players can extract their eDNA to gain unique recipes for items - or even NPCs themselves. This unique feature creates numerous options to customize players’ looks and interact with the world.

Player housing
Set in Lambda Mall, each player is given their own virtual home called USpace, which can be decorated and customized. USpaces are used to grow Soma, the game’s main resource, and can be attacked by other players, leading to PVP encounters. Afraid to go on vacation? Collect eDNA from creatures and clone them to protect the USpace in your absence.

Clans and Clan Wars
Found a clan with your friends!. Coming soon: Wage clan wars and choose to donate your eDNA creatures to your clan’s own world: the Clan|Space. Expand your Clan|Space, explore and defend it!
4 Classes are available to the players.
Warrior: This is as close to the classic tank as possible, specialized in strong close quarter abilities and high endurance.
Assassin: The second close combat class in the game. Massive damage but low endurance make this class a glass cannon.
Marksman: Their range advantage lets them keep their opponents away. A strong damage output with the safety of range makes this a survivor’s class.
Energizer: With its medium output of damage and average endurance, this class might not seem the best choice at first glance. But their healing abilities make up for all other shortcomings.

Business Model and Future DLC Plans
Otherland in Early Access is a Buy to Play game with optional free and paid DLC to be released over time. There are no micro-transactions at this point. The game features two currencies, bits and Credits. While bits are the main in-game currency which you can farm and earn through quests, credits are used for vanity items and currently in the game for testing purposes (given to players as a bonus). Again, the use of credits is optional, they can NOT be bought at this moment and you will be able to earn them through daily quests after the next big update.

Otherland MMO reviews and comments

Early Access Review times my Faszit from the Launchday on Steam: Of Course there were problems here and there, but you're used to that with all THE MMO. It's not called "Never play on Patch/Release Day!" For nothing. And the People behind the Game give their all, are always reached on Twitter and super nice. I find the Class when the Dev como s take care of the Players < 3 I think Otherland will become and remain a Niche MMO because of his Setting, much like The Secret World. However, There will certainly not be a Lack of players for all the Group content in the Game. And I personally prefer to have a small Community where you feel comfortable than a huge Crowd as in certain other Games. The Combat System takes getting used to and so I first knocked out some Mobs and checked until too late how to fight "really." Once you understand it, though, it ends up doing quite well. The Classes, hm .. You can choose one of the four Classes at the Beginning. I chose the Assasin. I currently have 3 Weapons at My disposal: Daggers, Sword and Staff. The Worlds are sometimes very confusing, but it is all structured quite harmoniously and has already Made me personally feel like reading the Books for Otherland once. I have already won the big Shopping Street. Virtual shopping 4tw! There are also dozens Of ways to style his Avatar. There is also a Kind of Housing that you can design "a little bit." Faszit: For People who would like to test out a slightly different MMO, I can only recommend the whole Thing. At the Moment there is even a Discount:) Addendum: Meanwhile I was able to spend a few Hours in this Game and I think it's great. Despite the Bugs, no Mispurchase Guarantees < 3

Early Access Review Welcome To Values Readers in the World of ONLINE MMO Otherland, based on the novel series Otherland by Tad Wiliams. First of all, it should be said that this Game has a troubled History, sometimes set, again not, then small Beta Phases with many Bugs and Server Problems. And hey, please, don't expect a Beta test like Blizzard delivers them, you have to take some Patience here, because Bugs are still plentiful. The Developers want to contribute the Community and EURE Help is needed. I can't name a real MMO Yet, it's more of a Mix with a strong Penchant for Solo Role-playing. Now this Game is available at Steam In the Early Access Varinate. The Beginning is made nice; You can then opt for one of the 4 Roles Marksman, Assassins, Warrior And Energizer. The Unreal 3 Engine is used. The World, ohhh you, you have to see, the Beginning is the Limbo (Chaos) Area, really turned off. The View of the World Consists of different Areas, usually with a strong Breeze Of Cyperspace. Gaudy Colours. There is no Skillbaum like that, you step up and with the Class trainer There are only improved Skills. The Quest May not be very special, exciting but still beautifully done. Work is still under way on the Combat System, it still has its Quirks, but it's running. A little spongy yet. You aim with the Mouse, usually you have 2 Attacks, if you have accumulated enough Energy with the first Attack, you can trigger the 2 Attack with the other Mouse button; P. For Fans of Otherland and Cyberspace, definitely worth a Look. Especially, as already written, brings a bit of Patience for the Bugs and reports them too. For me, Otherland is very refreshing, it's something other than WOW and Co. I like the Setting and the Music has something.
