A new online game called Nether is a first-person, survival-shooter that loosely revolves around the sprawling urban cityscape of Chicago and brings some unique gameplay that also involves scavenging and crafting specific resources in order to survive. The area covers several hundred blocks giving players the opportunity to enter many of the buildings to get higher vantage points.
With danger at every turn Nether also allows players with a meld of PvE and PvP to force big decisions as far as trusting other players is concerned, and the Nethers are the alien enemies that have human qualities making them hard to track down and kill.
Below this post we have embedded a gameplay video of Monster Mode, which lasts nearly two minutes, although a mixed response has come from those who have played it. While some suggest this looks more exciting than many of the generic FPS games of late, others discuss the potential here, even though there is plenty to fix.
The online game can be experienced from the official Playnether webpage along with details on how to sign up and play. While IGN describe this as having fast and fluid combat, some gamers feel that they get a strong fallout vibe from this trailer. We understand that many Fallout fans may not share the same sentiment, especially those waiting for Fallout to come to fruition. Watch the video below and feel free to air off about Nether in the comments section below.
