tr_ce_contents.jpg

With a new website design in place and the NDA out of he way, NCsoft has announced a launch date for Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa. The game has gone gold and will launch Europe and North America on October 19, 2007. Pre-order customers will be given a three-day head start on October 16.

Tabula Rasa is a much anticipated MMORPG with a persistent game world with a near-future science fiction storyline. This MMO has incorporated several innovative features that promise to set it apart from its peers. The Cloning system will allow players to explore other character classes without having to start over from scratch. The game design also incorporates dynamic battlefields to simulate the frenetic pace of wartime combat.

“It has been a heck of a journey,” said Richard Garriott, the game’s Executive Producer. “The fact that we are getting ready for the final stretch towards launch feels great, but it is also just the beginning. I think we’ve managed to do something truly unique and I hope that the gaming community likes it as much as we do. Now, I am looking forward to a really fun ‘end of beta event’ for our incredible testers, and focusing development on new planets and innovations for future expansions of Tabula Rasa.”
