    That looks pretty damn slick for an MMO.
    I think I saw slenderman in that video.

    While the game might look OK, I'm sure it'll use the same old MMO game mechanics: find a person, get a "quest" from them (that invariably involves killing some monsters), return to them to get XP. Rinse and repeat.

    I'm giving MMOs a miss until someone comes up with an innovative new game mechanic (or makes the current model less monotonous)

    However the thing MMO's get me on are the insane time commitment required.........and monthly sub's

    Looks really nice.
    Maybe a Left for Dead type MMO?

    You should read up on The Secret World I guess. Sure there'll be some kill-quets, but the game will be full of riddles instead of the usual quests found in other MMOs. Quests where you need to google the terms and stories behind them to solve the riddle etc.

    The character-progression is done via learning skills and you're totally free to choose any of the 500+ initially available ones. No classes, no character-levels and three factions instead of only black and white.

    So no, this won't be the typical MMOa actually.
