First Details on Urban Survival-Horror MMO Nether for PC
The first details are here for Nether, an upcoming survival-horror game. A persistent-world, massively multiplayer online game based entirely in an urban setting, Nether challenges players to survive day-to-day while trying to uncover the truth behind the apocalyptic event that has changed mankind forever.
Nether, from developer Phosphor Games and game production company Nether Productions, is slated for release in the fall of 2013 for the Windows PC platform.
“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.”
Nether is currently in Alpha phase with early access planned for this fall. Players can visit PlayNether.com to be notified of updates and other information as well as sign up to be among the first selected to access the game. More information on the title can also be found by liking Nether on Facebook and following Nether on Twitter (@PlayNether).
In Nether players are thrust into a decimated, post-apocalyptic city where the remaining human population has degenerated into a chaotic state of lawlessness. A pervasive sense of evil looms over the land as people struggle to survive and rumors circulate of vile, demonic creatures that roam the cities to claim any souls still living. As the few remaining survivors, players must decide if they will Prey or Pray as they use skill and cunning to obtain food, weapons, and other supplies necessary for existence while trying to determine whether to approach and trust other players or go at it solo.
