Faxion Online Announced

UTV True Games today announced its new MMORPG, Faxion Online. Faxion will be a highly competitive PvP-heavy MMO set in a fully persistent world, where players fight for control of territories. The development team consists of industry veterans including people who worked on Ultima Online and Shadowbane. “UTV True Games’ goal for its first internally developed product, Faxion Online, was to build a team with experience and passion for PvP MMORPG games,” said Frank Lucero, studio head at UTV True Games. “When I log into the game, it is increasingly evident that the team’s experience with PvP and territorial control games has paid off.” Players will fight for one of the two factions, Heaven or Hell, and the battles will take place across three fully-featured worlds, Heaven, Hell and Limbo. There are apparently stacks of character customisation options including skills, abilities and progression paths. Players can also expect a twist on the classic take of Heaven vs. Hell. “We are creating Faxion Online for players who seek a fast and exciting PvP experience immersed within a rich, persistent world,” said Mike Madden, Creative Director at UTV True Games. “As players of PvP MMOs themselves, the Faxion Online design team strives to preserve the depth of MMORPG play and progression while delivering the ease of entry found in today’s favorite Action/RPGs.” Look out for the beta in late 2010, but for more info in the mean time, check out the official site.
