Honorverse: The Online Game is, unsurprisingly, a game based on David Weber’s Honor Harrington series. The game itself isn’t due until next fall, but the Website has recently launched and includes a game description and trailers. (And not a whole heckuva lot else. The Web developer in me is unimpressed.)
As the leader of a star nation, the future of your people is in your hands. You will lead a unique nation with distinctive character and people. You will set military, technological and social policy; you will design and build fleets of ships to explore the galaxy; you will battle other players for resources and planets, and protect your interstellar commerce.
But it’s not all work. You can compose a national anthem, design your flag and insignia, and watch with pride as your star nation’s sports teams bring home glory.
It appears to be an MMORPG, somewhere between Second Life and SimCity. If you’re a fan of Honor Harrington, now’s your chance to wait with breathless anticipation until you can play the game.
