Fallen Earth is set in a post-apocalyptic game world and offers it to players with a free to play MMO experience. The game is a mixture of FPS and role playing features making it akin to the later games in the Fallout series.

The game is centred around the Grand Canyon area which is now a wasteland after a series of events which players will learn more about during the in depth tutorial which covers most of the games features and introduces the setting.

One of the things that players will first notice is the impressive graphics that the game offers which is mostly due in part to the fact that the game was originally a paid to play game so the production quality is fairly high. Not only is the game world visually attractive it’s also huge and definitely lives up the open world feel (especially with the great view distance that lets you see far in all directions). In order to get around players can even use a number of vehicles.

No role playing game is complete without a robust amount of character customisation and depth though and thankfully Fallen Earth features both. Customisation is extremely impressive and well above what most MMO games have to offer with the player having a huge amount of control over their characters visual elements.

These visual options are supported with an equally huge list of options for character development through the free class system that allows players to invest in stats, skills and trade skills as they please. You can even take this one step further with the various weapons and crafting options in the game which means no two characters are ever the same.

There isn’t a post-apocalyptic MMO that comes close to Fallen Earth and it even beats out most MMOs in general.

Summary:

  • A post-apocalyptic MMO with FPS and role playing elements.
  • An amazing amount of character customisation and development.
  • Spend your skill points in a number of different ways.
  • Craft weapons and even vehicles to help you in the harsh game world.
  • Originally paid but now free to play.
