Not sure how many of you have heard about this game, so I thought I would drop the info here. Short summary, it is a large scale world pvp focused game in a sci-fi setting.

Scifi MMORPG

Dominus is a science fiction Massively Multiplayer Online Game. Its story will evolve over time, but at the center of it all is the interplanetary struggle between Earth and two other alien races.
3 Playable Factions

Ally with three totally unique factions. Whether you choose Human or one of the two alien factions, Rodon or Salent, each has its own perspective on the current events in the game.
Character Progression

Everything you do adds to your overall skill. Start the game as an elite Human, a genetically engineered Rodon, or a nascent Salent and build your character into a powerful avatar.
Huge Universe

Explore 11 worlds with over 25 large seamless areas. Don't be fooled by the beauty of the planets of Dominus. Each has its own mysteries to discover and its own danger.
Massive Battles

Join the struggle for dominance by establishing bases, stopping invading forces and braving war torn planets.
Professions

By specializing in one of 7 professions you can discover new inventions, construct incredible items, develop enhancements, and make your character rich beyond belief.
Missions

Whether you follow the story that develops around you or decide to just explore on your own, your skills will be put to the test with exciting missions.
GM driven content

One of the main attractions of a massively multiplayer game is that you play with real people! Many player encounters are conducted by real players and are not just elaborately scripted events.
Strategic Base System

Establish a foothold for your faction and take control of valuable resources in the game by calling in any one of 7 different base structures. Each structure has a different function in strengthening your factions position.

PVP
Quote
Open world PVP

As your character advances and becomes more powerful he will venture into the fray and take on challenges where the other factions are the ultimate opponent.
Factions at War

World battles such as the ones that take place on Dominus pit faction against faction on a large scale.
Arenas

Always the place for one to test their mettle in a battle society.
Bounty Hunters

Become a famous (or infamous) Bounty Hunter, or gain renown by surviving with incredible bounties placed on your head.

The big features is the pvp system, akin to DAOC, crafting http://www.dominusthegame.com/game/professions/overview/, player bounties, and player pvp bases.

The only drawbacks I can see at a glance is the engine (the same one TOR uses), and the sci-fi setting seems a bit cheesy.
