Project Copernicus gets first footage; possibly out next summer

The very first video of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning developer 38 Studios’ upcoming MMO — still codenamed Project Copernicus — has made itself available, giving us a first look at the game through nearly two minutes of flythrough footage.

What say you, MMOers? Up to snuff?

After being unable to pay off its dept and employees, there’s a bit of good news originating from the studio as well; it has managed to make the first payment of just over a million to Rhode Island (via).

When delivering the news to the media, governor Lincoln Chafee also seemingly slipped out the planned release window for Copernicus: “What I understand is Copernicus is June of ’13,” he said.
