The Skies Reborn is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG in which you follow your own path or join other players to conquer the wasteland.
In this innovative sandbox you create your own adventure in a player driven economy. Your actions will result in the development of both the world and your character.
The story of the game is set at the beginning of the 21st century, when solar activity has increased dramatically. Within two weeks, civilization collapsed, destroying energy sources, government and infrastructure. The temperature at the surface of the earth became unbearably high. People were forced to go down the drain.
In the 2070s. the temperature began to drop slightly and the survivors began to surface and rebuild civilization. In order to survive, people began to unite into clans. And only strength now determines who will live and prosper in the wasteland, and who is destined to leave the new cruel world forever.
Are you strong enough to find your place under the scorching sun?

“Hey all, the announcement everyone’s been waiting for. The update on the next test. October 16th to the 18th will be a public test. This test is a pretty big one. The biggest addition is… Instanced Dungeons and traits. Early backers will get a dungeon only test before then to make sure it’s good to go for a public test. More info will be available that week.”
Starting between now and Friday, October 16th, ArtCraft will be working with the Unity engine team to record information and focus on targets to improve Crowfall’s performance, and they need as many live players as possible to take part in several specific fort and keep sieges. As an incentive, those who have played for at least six hours in total on the Live server between now and Sunday, October 18th, will get a unique Hero’s Tankard item that grants a 2% damage bonus when equipped.
Amazon Game Studios Seattle (Crucible) transitioning to Amazon Game Studio Orange County (New World).
Today has been the announcement of the Amazon gaming subsidiary in charge of Crucible and they confirmed that Crucible is on its way of being shutdown. It appears that they are also mentioning their intentions of moving the development team to AGS Orange County in charge of the upcoming MMO New World (previously teased as a Survival Online recently changed to Open World MMO).
It’s still hard to know if those changes are good or not since we barely know what the people joining New World are capable of; anyways a significant amount of developers will soon be part of the New World project in addition of the current development team.
