The man called "Lord British," best known for designing the formative Ultima series of computer role-playing games and creating
Origin Systems, lends his expertise to this persistent world RPG set in the distant future. Players will become part of a human
renegade force sent to repel the advances of a crustacean-like alien race known as "The Bane." Combat in Tabula Rasa primarily
involves firing guns while crouching and using cover in real-time. Instead of choosing a specific character class at the onset,
players will instead follow branching career paths while earning experience from missions benefiting the resistance movement.
All characters begin military life as a lowly recruit, eventually deciding on specialization trees promoting them to soldiers,
commandos, sappers, rangers, and more.
Each role offers new weapon, tool, or armor proficiencies, allowing players to expand their offensive and defensive techniques
against enemies. Characters can also acquire mystical runes called Logos, which tap into the universe's energy and imbue them
with feats of power, similar to magic in fantasy games. The gameplay initially takes place on two alien planets: the
forest-covered Foreas and the volcanic Arieki, each home to multiple regions or zones to explore, including instanced areas.
Tabula Rasa's development team opted for a simplified user-interface designed to quickly get players involved in the ongoing
conflict without having to spend an inordinate amount of time learning how to control their characters. Cooperative play with
other characters is encouraged and enhanced with the game's built-in voice chatting functions.
Tabula Rasa is available as a standard release and as part of a limited collector's edition. Packaged within the latter's black,
rectangular box is the following: a making-of DVD; a Black Ops poster; seven double-sided maps; an AFS field guide; an AFS
military challenge coin; a set of dog tags; and a welcome letter from "General British," a.k.a. Richard Garriott. Several in-game
items (unlocked via serial code) are available as well, including armor-enhancing dye recipes, a "Boo Bot" pet, and even an
exclusive character emote. The game itself comes with one month of free online play, after which a subscription is required.
