Finally a glimpse at Rapture, the project name for the new Square MMO. It's nice to see that the company is trying to keep current but I will find it hard to imagine that it will be able to beat this game.

Also important to note, the pic pasted below is not from Rapture, I believe its taken from a Tech Demo that was displaying the muscle of the Crystal Tools graphic engine.

It has been stated recently in this weeks Pet Food Alpha podcast that Rapture will not be using the Crystal Tools engine, so perhaps it will look entirely different.

Also no Xbox360 support for Rapture? That is taking a step backwards in my opinion, but lets see how it goes.

Rapture Confirmed For E3!

Today, gameplayer.com has reveiled Square Enix’s plans for this years E3 event which goes from June 2-4.

It was announced that Square Enix will be announcing three brand new games, and that two of those will be multi-platform.

One of them appears to be an MMO codenamed Rapture!

Gameplayer.com goes on and says that the new MMO is only set for release on the PlayStation 3 and the PC, leaving the Xbox 360 out of the run. Possibly so Square Enix can avoid another “PS2 Limitations” issue with their next MMO?

The game is currently expected to be shown during Sony’s press conference on Tuesday. Square Enix is also having their own press conference at 11:00 AM on Wednesday.

Although it's hard to think of leaving FFXI for another MMO at this point, I'm still really excited to see what they've got up their sleeves.
They've said time and time again that it won't be a FFXI-2, and that they want both games to coexist. As nice as that would be it's probably just a fairytale.
Unless the game is designed so differently that it truly doesn't compete with games like FFXI and WoW, it's going to pull players from this game. Either they will leave for new and hopefully improved lands, or they will all bounce back like Everquest/Everquest 2 and rapture will probably flop.

...but I sure would like to be able to jump...

I just want to know stuff about it!

they said it wouldn't be directly related to FFXI, which so far it still isn't, but that Hume looks mighty familiar...
