Default Infinity.

Anyone else looking forward to this? I have a feeling it's going to take the throne from EVE.

Infinity
Quotin' the overview:
Quote:
Welcome to Infinity.

Infinity is a massively multiplayer online game set in a persistent futuristic universe, currently in development.

Infinity features an advanced procedural engine allowing for a seemingly infinite galaxy of unique star systems and planets to discover and explore, including seamless planetary landing. Infinity offers new and existing players an extensive storyline following the complex and often intricate political and social interactions of hundreds of corporations, organizations, and reputation groups through the games three primary factions: the Centauran, the Deltan Federation, and the Star Fold Confederacy.



Infinity employs an open-ended world design, in which a player can control everything from a small shuttle to massive military dreadnaught, a single mining operation to an entire vast corporate empire, all without having to change characters. A completely player-skill based game design, Infinity sheds the need for character classes and skills by embracing self-balance over arbitrary limitation, allowing players to choose their own path to make their name across the galaxy.

Although all players are expected to act in concordance with their personal motivations, Infinity is not a traditional role playing game. The actions of a single player greatly affect the evolution of their character. Your character might grow from their humble beginnings as a young military officer to become the master of a vast corporate empire, or even a wanted mercenary and pirate.

The game mechanics do not emphasize any particular game play style - combat, trade, exploration, social relationships, you are free to choose your own path and goals. Players can choose from a number of interesting character backgrounds that serve as your characters personal history, circumstances, and setting in the Infinity universe to help ground new players in their new boundless horizon of stars. The only limit is your own imagination!



Combat in Infinity functions in real-time, utilizing Newtonian physics to control the fluid realistic movements of player ships and objects. Where the outcome of combat is determined by your own intelligence and reflexes. Not the level and class of another player!

Like all massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, you will connect to an online server shared by thousands of other players at any time. But, unlike other MMOs, the Infinity universe is an entirely persistent. The actions of your characters do not stop when you log off - as the actions of your characters continue to progress and evolve, even while you are offline.

By utilizing the advanced procedural techniques of the I-Novae Engine, Infinity has unshackled itself from the limitations of its forbearers, allowing for the dynamic generation of countless star systems and planets, each unique and awaiting to be discovered by a player. Drawing upon plausible astronomic scales and distances of stellar objects, the precise orbital path of every celestial body is modeled, as each planet and star moves continuously within the galaxy. Allowing players to glimpse the double sunrise of a binary star system on some distant rocky world, to the total eclipse of a tiny moon orbiting a massive gas giant thousands of light years from your home planet - every vista, every horizon is wholly unique in Infinity.

The game engine is so badass. Seamless planet entry ftw.

Tbh, It sounds like somebody's just making EVE all over again with all of CCP's updates in the starting package.


I'm not going to be restarting more than a years worth of training just for a new physics engine...

Hahaha f*** Flight Simulator, there is now a Universe Simlulator. I actually had this very idea years ago.

The one problem I've seen so far is that landing on a planet seems a bit to effortless. I was expecting a fireball when that guy literally nose-dived into the atmosphere but instead there was just a warm glow off the ship (very under-dramatic and unrealistic).

Otherwise Im very interested in this. But now, EVE looks a bit better. More action.

There is a game almost identical to this (but without planetary landing) and it's X Universe. In X Universe you can do pretty much anything you want; start an interstellar business, work as protecton for cargo, be a space fighter, a pirate, pretty much anything. It's really cool but a gaming computer is a REQUIREMENT.

Perhaps, but it will be run by a company who don't act like they are drunk all the time and hopefully won't go around nerfing random things and alienating as many of their players as they can... I gave EVE many chances before I quit, but it seems CCP hate solo players (as well as anyone else who doesn't like to regularly fly around in a 5000000 ship blob with 600 titans)

This is why I love CCP.

Absolutely love them.
