New Sandbox MMORPG Announced: Shards

Shards Online - news

The new independent developer Citadel Studios has just communicated their first project, codenamed "Shards", giving a sneak peek.

Taking inspiration from their previous work on Ultima Online, the forefather of all RPGs, the company is determined to deliver a real next-gen MMO in which players will be able to determine their gaming experience while the way players collaborate with each other in-game will be changed for good.

Have a look at their announcement teaser trailer!

"We left our soul-crushing, corporate jobs to make the games we’d actually play," told Derek Brinkmann, founder and CEO of Citadel Studios. "As we started our first project and experimented with concepts, we discovered ways we could share our passion for creating living worlds with gamers themselves. Ultimately the community will dictate what Shards becomes, because we’re not just providing a game but also a platform for players to express their creativity."

Shards is set in a richly-imagined universe with meaningful lore and environments that range from familiar to astonishing. Based on their own personal passion for the genre, Citadel is ignoring the modern online gaming imperative to squeeze every last cent from every player. They therefore promises to give players more power than ever before, without continually seducing them to take out their purse.
