Currently if you are a horror fan who wants to get into an MMO your only option is The Secret World. Not a bad game but it needs some healthy competition. Chicago-based studio Phosphor Games is looking to enter the playing feild with their new survival horror MMO Nether.
The game is done very much in the style of DayZ or Infestation. Only in this game it looks like you are dealing with some odd ink like creatures. In the first gameplay footage released it looks like a combination of Silent Hill and Skyrim. I’m surprised with how well the graphics look considering it will be an MMO.
Currently there are allowing people to sign up to get in on the Beta. Below you can see their official information about the game as well as that gameplay I mentioned above.
Nether is… a persistent-world, 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 is slated for release in the fall of 2013 for the Windows PC platform.
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 one of 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 or not to approach and trust other players or go at it solo.
