Crowfall is an upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by ArtCraft, described as a "Throne War Simulator". The game aims to be a fusion of action MMORPGs and real-time strategy games.
@ Wikipedia

WHAT IS CROWFALL?
Crowfall is a new type of online experience. We call it a Throne War Simulator, and it's a mix of a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) and a large scale strategic simulator of a fantasy world.
Crowfall is different in three fundamental ways: TIME, DESTRUCTION and POWER.
The Worlds of Crowfall feature unique maps, rules, and victory conditions. Every World is different, and players join teams (Factions, Guilds or Noble Houses) to vie for control of each World.

Couple updates (first of all, for quick Crowfall intro - IGN Wiki):

- Game already has more than $7M of budget, 120 000 registered supporters and open beta ( free tests ! ) is announced for this winter, all required is just registration on the site.

- Frequent changes of race/class/gender will be likely - account is tied to crow-spirit, so after death you don't respawn but fly to find a new body!? (if there's no alive friends or spare corpse nearby...From NY Reveal). Also, bodies will be crafted (! - through necromancy skill) in qualities from white/green to legendary.

- Crowfall has cartoony style - to enable battles with hundreds of players, with lots of physics and building / destruction (voxels). Here are some early player-made videos (the footage is still very rough, pre-alpha...also, check siege engines):

...then noob girl (Confessor) playing with fire and Centaurs:

...and some Ranger PvP:

Also, you will be able to physically build your own kingdom (and to set game rules in it, including taxes to other players and turning PvP on/off) by playing Tetris!?! Here is how early tests of that building tool look like.

The game will have very strong RTS feel - strategy, politics & economy will matter as much as - if not more than - individual player skill. It is, IMO accurately, described as "Game of Thrones meets EVE Online".

PS Here is an Imgur album with hundreds of images and screenshots and, say, Crowfall reddit.

Here's couple new videos, starting with the Duelist (it's simple: you mix guinea pig with Van Helsing, and give it stealth):



...then TheLazyPeon's new preview:



...and some PvP:



The game is still in alpha, open beta seems to be pushed back to late 2017. Tho they got 150 000+ registered accounts by now, and the budget just went over $10M.
