Just watched part of the trailer instead of relying on the pic
OK, it's more sci-fi than I thought. But if you're going to distinguish yourself from the fantasy MMO's by going the sci-fi route, I suggest emphasizing the differences more. Instead of rocky terrain and simple analogs for sorceress and barbarian/troll, maybe something that looks more space-y.
Like a abandoned futuristic city with metal, and the heroes not wearing what might as well be WoW clothes with the occasional LED.
But that's just my opinion: why bother going the sci-fi route to be different, if so much of it's going to be the same.
It's not science fiction. It's space-opera. Big difference.
Space-opera really is just fantasy set in space. So naturally you get what you see here...same old same old, with a new background image.
