Tokyo Game Show is always a hotbed for new game announcements, and this year was no exception. One of the few MMO announcements was Ashfall, a post-apocalyptic MMORPG from Legendary Star Studio.
The game has been in development for a few years now, but it was finally revealed to the public this weekend. Ashfall takes place in a world that has been ravaged by nuclear war. The only hope for humanity lies in finding the Core of Creation.
The title had been previously known as Project 56 but changed its official name to Ashfall for the Tokyo Game Show reveal.
The music for the upcoming MMO will be composed by none other than the great Hans Zimmer along with Steve Mazzaro, the man behind the score for movies such as No Time to Die and Dune, and Inon Zur, who has composed soundtracks for some of the biggest videogame titles in history including the Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dragon Age and Everquest.
Storywise not much has been revealed about Ashfall, but a few tidbits can be found on the official Steam page. Humanity has built a new world from the scraps of civilization that are left over after a nuclear war against the AI, and must now fight for its survival.
The game is clearly inspired by the Fallout series, but with an eastern touch.
Ashfall is set to release in 2023 for PC and mobile devices. Are you excited about the post-apocalyptic MMORPG? Let us know in the comments below!
