World's First FPS-MMORPG Announced

Summitsoft announced today it will publish Avaria's Endless Ages, the world's first true real time first person shooter MMORPG (massively multiplayer role playing game). Situated in the persistent world environment of Iia, Endless Ages has proved an addictive success since the official launch of its online pilot program last year.

Players can hook up with clans or go it alone as they hit the arenas, uncover thousands of quests, tame and ride wild beasts, run trade stores on- or offline, and pilot any number of vehicles including jetpacks, hover bikes, hydro crafts and submarines. Unique skills such as shape shifting and mind control further sets Endless Ages apart from others in this genre.

Our intention with Endless Ages is to offer a more dynamic gaming element than traditional online games, states Bruce Lowry, President and CEO of Summitsoft. The frantic exciting nature of real time action in a persistent first- or third-person world creates an excitement that hooks players, and keeps them hooked month after month.

Retailers are the primary portal for entry to the world of lia offering a USD 39.95 launch pack that includes a startup disc, full in-depth manual and strategy guide, and 30 days of online access free with purchase. Rated Teen with suggestive themes and violence, Endless Ages will be available nationwide beginning June 2nd and carry a low monthly subscription rate of USD 9.95 after the 30 free days.

World's First FPS-MMORPG Announced

umm technicaly Neocron wasnt even a fps because if you noticed there where plenty of times where your aim doesnt matter and you will still hit the monster and in neocron.. well they messed up badly on the whole gun system because its to much of a pain just to get a gun besides the first actual mmofps will be planetside!bioootch!

Um..Neocron uses dice to determine damage..so its not an mmofps, it uses an fps interface, tho, secondly, Endless aces is not the first, nor is it any good.Planet side is a TRUE fps, there are no dice, dmg dealth is direct dmg, not a range of dmg{like neocron was}It doesnt matter if you have the "highest" level weapon in planet side, because I can sneak up behind you and fill you full of shotgun shells before your pathetic aim even turns around to shoot at me.Anyways, PS has gone public beta and it pwns!

Endless Ages was originally launched last August, beating out Neocron by a couple of months. Since then, EA has added PvP arenas, more servers, more everything; and are even planning a much needed graphics overhaul. It's definitely worth a look.

Planetside is the only true MMOFPS, or FPS-MMORPG if you wanna give it an ugly name. Planetside uses a true fps interface where skill is built on aiming as well as other things, plus it has the rpg elements such as leveling up, and building skills.

I agree with what someone said.... monthly fees for a game you have already bought is a pile of poo.Server costs... rubbish... look at all the servers hosted by ISPs for games like Q3A etc, how many years have some of them been running without people "subscribing" to them?

I'm afraid Planetside and even Neocron are first in the FPS-MMORPG category. And for those of you who dont think planetside is RPG, you level up gain new abilities implants, sounds like an rpg to me, just more constant action instead of camping a few mobs to level up.

All these comments from a bunch of people who obviously haven't even played the game. Armchair experts pfft...Notwithstanding the surreal graphics, the gameplay is awesome! The fact that it has been put together by a team of 4 including 1 programmer beggers belief.Put aside your prejudices and download the game for 5 days free trial - then come back here and post - I canb bet you won't be so critical.

A good portion of you are quite inane. EA was and is the first MMO FPS/RPG. Although the graphics may be a tad outdated, the gameplay is great. They've added plenty of things since launch, and hopefully the graphics update that they're supposed ot have will improve that element of the game a lot.PlanetSide is mostly an MMOFPS, but it has RPG elements. However I would call it an MMOFPS.MMO FPS/RPGs are not dumb, they make excellent games. So to Anonymous you're a total dumbass. Q3A isn't an MMO FPS/RPG you can only play with a limited amount of people and you can host a damn server yourself. So anyone who thinks that regular FPSs count can just shut up.

Endlessages is gone now!!!! The developers messed up pretty good, they created something after Endless Ages that was a FPS called Pylon. But I was a beta tester of Endless Ages.

May Endlessages R.I.P. I only have Screen shots to remember it by =(Chars:ImpactRag'norFrogzillerMersadez
