Earth Eternal North American beta release coming soon
Earth Eternal, which was billed by some as a furry MMORPG, and which went offline in September 2010, is about to be relaunched in North America under its new ownership. Formerly run by SparkPlay, the new version, described as revived and revamped, will be operated by Outblaze and TurnOut Ventures. Although rumors have abounded for months that a relaunch might be forthcoming, it was only recently that there has been a more definitive announcement that a beta would be launching shortly.
The new game will have some differences from the old. Only twelve of the twenty-two character races from the original will be available. There will no longer be a browser version, and a Facebook account will be required. The changes to the game made it impossible to preserve characters from the original, so all players will need to start over (and according to their website, characters created for the beta release will be deleted at the end of the beta period).
Some have already been playing the Japanese version, and report that the character models have been somewhat altered to a more Japanese styling. Despite some differences, the overall look and feel and the gameplay are much like the earlier incarnation of the game.

EE only went down so people would join Antilia, then it revived X3
Finally! Though I personally don't like most of the Japanese versions of the characters, well, specifically the fangren (canine) species. Granted, the old designs weren't terribly great, but if they at least gave the fangren more of a muzzle I think that they would look much better. Who knows though, maybe things will shape up nicely. (graphical modeling pun not intended)
I think now it will be one of those asian animu grindfest MMOs.
Facebook... oh yeah... too bad about that whole anti-psynonym policy, because that means their whole target market is pretty much forced to use their real name, or say screw it.
I say screw it.
Apparently they said screw FNN. (Flayrah is still there, but then I used my real name; there's a field for alternate names.)
All old races and more will be back in game. They have not been implemented yet and during the beta, its easier to bug with less sepcies and slowly implement others once ways to implement have been achieved.
