The Bible Online announced
A new MMORTS has been announced from European publisher FiAA: The Bible Online.
Similar to Evony, Lords Online, and other RTS titles, FIAA will be free to play in a browser, and use a similar strategy of village building, resource management, and both diplomacy and warfare. However, the game will use Biblical quotes and references to take players through the story of Genesis and, in later game expansions, other chapters of the Bible.
The beta for The Bible Online is set to begin September 6th.

The Heroes is the first in a series of upcoming chapters. It is based on the first book of the bible, the Genesis. Players slip into the role of Abraham and his descendants and have the opportunity to reenact and witness the incidents of their times.
The Bible Online: Chapter 1 – The Heroes is a massively multiplayer online strategy game. As the leader of their tribe, players have to construct their villages, manage recources and the budget. They will have to decide between diplomacy and warfare. However, players do not stay in one place. They will go on a quest to go to the Promised Land. Leading Abram’s tribe from Ur to Haran and finally to Canaan, players and their heroes will face many challenges before reaching their goal.
The game also offers role playing elements. The birth right system introduces Abraham’s successors Isaac and Jacob. Side quests allow users to experience less known stories of the Genesis.
