Stop us if you've heard that one before. Tencent Boston (the Chinese gaming company's U.S. division) and Stomp Games have announced Robot Rising, a full 3D, sci-fi role-playing game (RPG) headed for Facebook this fall. The duo dub their social RPG as 'the next evolution in games on Facebook," and they just might be right ... at least visually speaking: This game looks gorgeous.

Robot Rising is set in--what else?--a futuristic world in which robots are tools at war with which you're expecting to cause as much fiery destruction as possible. (The story doesn't really matter, does it?) In the RPG, players create a home base and amass a robot army with which to do battle with in real time with other players.

In short, Robot Rising looks and sounds like Kixeye or Kabam's lot of strategy games meets isometric action RPGs in the same vein as Diablo. And judging from the trailer below, it'll look dam good doing it. Interested players can sign up for the Robot Rising closed beta test right here.
