Cary, NC - November 6, 2009 - FALLEN EARTH, LLC, and Icarus Studios Inc., developers of the self-titled massively multiplayer online game (MMO), announced today the development of a cross-platform iPhone application, which allows players to connect into the live game server and interact with the game remotely via their iPhone.
Through the new iPhone application, players will have constant access to Fallen Earth, which has been one of the most critically acclaimed releases this year. Through its interactive features, the application will allow Fallen Earth players to view their in-game character stats, mutations and trade skills as well as provide access to equipped and stored items. Players will also have the capacity to view maps for each of the three sectors in the 1,000 square kilometers of the game's landscape.
"Fallen Earth fans will have the ability to interact with the game when away from their PCs in a way never before seen in an MMO," said Dave Haydysch, Project Manager of Fallen Earth. "With the Fallen Earth iPhone app, players will be able to play many aspects of the game in real-time while on-the-go."
Scheduled for release in Q1 of 2010, the application will feature extensive real-time management of several key in-game systems. Players will be able to manage their crafting queue, view recipes, craft items, buy and sell items at the Auction House as well as interact with friends, Clan members and other online players through multiple chat channels, mail and private messaging.
Fallen Earth takes place in 2156 after the deadly Shiva virus devastated Earth, decimating nearly 99 percent of the population. Survivors are left with the hidden effects of the virus including mutations of both man and beast. The Grand Canyon has become the last bastion of humanity, as inhabitants must choose to ally with one of the remaining factions - CHOTA, Traveler, Vista, Enforcer, Lightbearer or Tech - or rally against them. Each faction will make the choice to re-build the human raceand rise above the destruction or embrace the chaos and descend further into the oblivion.
With the Fallen Earth Facebook and Twitter pages, fans will never be left wanting again.
