Our First Look At The Survival Horror MMO, ‘Nether’

Nether00

We don’t often get massively multiplayer online (MMO) horror games. The Secret World is currently the best option if that’s what you’re looking for, but soon, another will enter the ring.

It’s called Nether, and it’s currently being developed by the same team that brought us the World War Z mobile game. In it, your goal is to survive against weird, ink-like glob monsters — and I’m assuming a variety of other unusual creatures — using lots of guns. The game is in alpha right now, with an early release on the PC planned for the fall. See it in action after the break.

“Our team has a strong and varied background that includes the creation of post-apocalyptic titles, so we’re really excited about Nether,” said Chip Sineni, Creative Director at Phosphor Games. “Our focus is to veer away from some of the ‘traditional’ survival-horror offerings in order to provide something new for the genre, with a great urban setting, a different type of story and an experience that excites us as fans and will be something definitely fresh and new for gamers.”

If this tickles your fancy, you can go here to sign up for early access to the game.

    Well looks like they’ve succeeded. I was ready to dismiss this because I thought it was more zombies. Ink-like glob monsters? Hell, I’m game.

    We’re doomed -_-

    If I play that game, I’ll be blind after 30 minutes of gameplay.
