Fallen Earth


We know it started in Asia, somewhere in India or Pakistan. A bunch of locals came down with some sort of virus that killed just about everyone who came into contact with it. Unfortunately, during the early stages, the virus was highly contagious and the infection was all but undetectable, so it spread fast. The later stages of it caused some sort of muscle contractions that looked like dancing, which reminded someone of a multi-armed Hindu god, and so it got named the Shiva Virus. Despite all the technology and wealth available, people died by the thousands. Then the nukes started going off. Not sure who started it or how, but within a few days, a good chunk of Southern Asia was irradiated wasteland. A couple of invasions and some more nukes later, and the whole world pretty much got screwed.

The beginning of the Fall is somewhat up for debate, but 2055 is the most common year cited. By the time the virus actually reached North America in 2056, war had broken out on the east coast between the United States Government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, (which was supported by the United States military). By most accounts, the Fall was over by 2062, around the time of the death of the last President of the United States. At that point, every human being was locked away in some sealed bunker, an immune carrier of the Shiva Virus, or dead. It’s estimated that less than one out of one-hundred people survived the Fall, and even that sounds generous.

Around here, we had some additional problems, seeing as how a few nukes had hit the region (not sure who sent them) and a lot of the old Rothium kegs that were being used by GlobalTech to generate power were busted. The way the Techs tell it, the kegs were supposed to use heavy water to provide power; when rainwater got in them, they just spewed radioactive nanites. Few folks have a clue what all that means, but it’s obvious that radiation is still common throughout the region, and it does a good job of keeping people from reaching the outside world. There’re all sorts of nasty critters and radioactive storms just outside the Province, and they’re a good way to get yourself dead. For now, we’re stuck in the Grand Canyon Province. It could be worse… somehow…


Fallen Earth FAQ

Let me say I beta tested this Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG and it is awesome!

The game isnt like a World of Warcraft game at all, you actually have to use your brain while playing. I would describe it as a cross between Fallout 3 and a sandbox MMO.

The community so far has been very helpful and courteous. Definitely not like most other MMOs out there. Most MMOs have a large player base of younger kids, but Fallen Earth has a great portion of players from 26-50 years old.

Looks fun. I love post-apoc games. Fallout 3 was awesome.

I just don't have a computer that can play anything crazier than Warcraft 3.

Xbox ftw

From the videos it does look alot like Fallout 3, also bits of the footage remind me of Fable 2. I like WoW, but hate paying the $15/month for it. Is there a monthly charge for it?

Is there a rating for this game? M? Do you know if it can turn into a TPS, form a FSP.
