It's an upcoming sandbox MMORPG developed by J Todd Coleman (Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Star Wars: The Old Republic). They have collected nearly $30M in funding so far, with 330,000 registered users.
In Crowfall, there are many strategy elements: caravans, trading, politics, city building, war... All what is needed to win a campaign.
Beta should happen this year and anyone who registers a free account can participate to it.
Here's a video showing the in-game world (most of the post-processing effects have been removed from the game):
