Chris Roberts (who coincidentally is Asheh's current Bosses brother)
who you may or may not have heard of worked on several games including : Wing commander and its sequels and spinoffs, Star lancer and even a bit of freelancer.
now hes back and he wants to make a proper space game again, this game will have singleplayer and multiplayer aspects and as far as I can tell function kind of link a FTP mmo. there will also be first person elements but the primary game play will be more akin to freelancer/Wing commander.
now the game is 100% going to get made as hes got crazy mad funding powers, there's still a few days of funding left on both kickstarter and direct on his site if anyone's interested. there's also lots of info on the site and KS page, so worth a read if you are into space games. I've personally funded it because I think it will be mega epic.
From the site:
- A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.
- Single Player – Offline or Online
(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)
- Persistent Universe (hosted by US)
- Mod-able multiplayer (hosted by YOU)
- No Subscriptions
- No Pay to Win
