Earthrise to do what reality doesn't

Three new questions were asked by the Earthrise community for the devs at Masthead Studios to answer. While all three give us a bit more insight into the game, the biggest question had to do with PvP. Specifically, will players actually be able to attack people in their own faction.

The short answer is: Yes. Because Earthrise's setting is a dynamic and "edgy" place the devs didn't want players to have to play by their rules. While players will be able to attack and even kill members of their own faction, it doesn't mean the act won't go without consequences. Something that appears to be missing in today's reality.

Murdering -- and that's what it really boils down to -- people within your own faction is one of the most egregious acts a player can commit. Clearing your name will be very difficult, plus your actions will have consequences out in the wild by becoming a target for other criminals. Much more is revealed about the game mechanics, and the more I read about this game, the more I want to play it. If you're interested in this post apocalyptic sci-fi MMO set in the distant future, be sure to give it a read.
