X Rebirth Release Trailer Space Sim News
Posted by Timmy51m on 2013/11/14 23:00:00 (1553 reads)



X Rebirth is finally here, at least in Europe, few more days for America. Strangely though, I find myself waiting for some reviews before I decide on this one, it looks kinda weird graphically. Have they overdone it with all the lights, lightmaps and trails etc?

Elite: Dangerous Capital Ship Battle Video Space Sim News
Posted by Timmy51m on 2013/9/19 15:27:44 (1910 reads)



Here is the capital ship battle video used as part of the composer selection process for Elite: Dangerous. The video contains the music created for the pitch by the winning composer Erasmus Talbot.

The video also helped us develop other aspects of the game such as ship materials, GUI layout and special effects. Look out for David Braben's next dev diary where he will talk about why we created this video. We'll also follow up with a detailed art making of video to highlight how the artists benefitted from putting this video together.

Quote:
Launched in 2004, Nexus: The Jupiter Incident was a landmark in space-based Real-Time Strategy games. Noted for its lavish visuals, and deep, tactically-focused gameplay, it is a cherished memory for all gamers who revel in the sight of mighty dreadnoughts and swarms of fighters clashing in huge fleet engagements.

Now, in 2011, the original development team is preparing to bring you the next episode in this galaxy-spanning epic. We invite you to join us on this momentous journey, as Marcus Cromwell once more takes the bridge to defend Earth from the onslaught of savage alien races, and decode the enigma of the mythical beings known only as the Creators.
