Fallen Earth and Icarus Studios, developers of the self-titled massively multiplayer online game, have just announced the development of a cross-platform iPhone application, which will let players play the game by a real-time remote connection and interact with it via their iPhone.
This way, users can acceed Fallen Earth anytime they want. The title has been one of the most acclaimed release during this year. By using all of its features, players will be able to view their in-game character stats, mutations and trade skills, as well as provide access to equipped and stored items. The application will also let users view maps for each of the three sectors in the 1,000 square kilometers of the game’s landscape.
"Fallen Earth fans will have the ability to interact with the game when away from their PCs in a way never before seen in an MMO," said Dave Haydysch, Project Manager of Fallen Earth. "With the Fallen Earth iPhone app, players will be able to play many aspects of the game in real-time while on-the-go."
The application will be released later in Q1 of 2010, and will feature extensive real-time management of several in-game items. Players will be able to manage their crafting queue, view recipes, craft items, buy and sell items at the Auction House as well as interact with friends, Clan members and other online players through multiple chat channels and a mail and private messaging system too.
Fallen Earth, co-developed with Icarus, is set in the Grand Canyon in 2156 after the deadly Shiva virus devastated Earth, decimating nearly 99 percent of the population. Survivors are left with the hidden effects of the virus including mutations of both man and beast. The Grand Canyon has this way become the last bastion of humanity. Inhabitants make the hard choice of living among one of the remaining factions: CHOTA, Traveler, Vista, Enforcer, Lightbearer or Tech, or even rally against all of them. Each faction has got its own purpose: re-building the human race and rise above the destruction or embracing the chaos and descend further into the oblivion.
The game is a mix of first-person shooter action with some role-playing game design, allowing players to explore a post-apocalyptic world through crafting, trading, and scavenging.
