Hybrids enter Tabula Rasa – trailer

By Patrick Garratt, Wednesday, 6 February 2008 11:31 GMT

Look. There they are. The latest update for Richard Garriot’s sci-fi MMO was announced a few days ago, but we didn’t report it because we couldn’t get this stupid video to work. But now we can. According to the press release:

“There are three human-alien hybrids; taking the best characteristics of the Forean, Brann, Thrax and merging them with humanity. For a player to obtain a hybrid character they must follow and complete a mission chain; each race has their own distinct chain to complete. Hybrid characters have increased attribute points in certain key areas, like Mind, Body or Spirit over a normal human. These are dependent on the alien race merged with, for example a Thrax-Human has increased physical attributes (Body), which allows them to absorb more total damage. There are of course weaknesses to the joining.

“This is the first stage of development for the inclusion of Hybrid’s into Tabula Rasa. In the future, the development team will be adding hybrid-specific weaponry and armour and may also be adding hybrid specific missions.”

Watch away.
