Now that we know the platform. We need to see the games.3000AD, the creators of Battlecruiser and Universal Combat, have announced their upcoming projects, revealing two Xbox 360 titles: Hostile Intent - Planetfall and KnightBlade - Line Of Defense. Here is what Derek Smart, President of 3000AD said:
We've been working on our future projects and are today pleased to also announce a brand new IP and a new title.
Hostile Intent - Planetfall brings our seamlessly integrated technologies to the formidable XBox360 platform.
KnightBlade - Line Of Defense, another XBox360 title, is our brand new from-the-ground-up IP which is not only ground breaking but also continues our trend of developing truly innovative titles.
Yep, you guessed it. We're in the process of a major console sellout. Who knew?!?
Hostile Intent - Planetfall
Based on our existing and upcoming new technologies, the design focuses on a pure action game which eschews most - if not all - of the sim and complex elements which have been the hallmark of our previous BC/UC games. Make no mistake, this game was NOT designed for - and is not targeted at - the traditional BC/UC afficionado. You have been warned.
Its all there. Vastly improved graphics engines, advanced AI, massive game world and nail biting scenarios.
While the game universe is much - much - smaller than our traditional games, in console speak, the world is still larger than traditional console games. Featuring space and planetary worlds, scenarios including space and planetary excursions; first person and vehicular combat as well as a skill based progress system (e.g. from pilot to commander) through a revised campaign system.
The idea is to blend the fun factor of your favorite multi-genre fp shooters (e.g. Battlefield, Joint Ops) with our high-end technologies which includes seamless space and planetary combat.
And yes, the XBox360 controller works just fine; thanks to our ability to revise the controls and interface on the PC, using the USB controller.
KnightBlade - Line Of Defense
This is an exciting new IP that I've been working on over the years...while waiting for technology to catch up.
Set in the existing game world, it is an episodic (three titles are planned in the series) game which tells the story of a band of renegades in a stolen experimental GALCOM craft - the GCV-KnightBlade who - against overwhelming odds, are the last line of defense against an embattled Earth.
Designed and developed from the ground up using our Reality Engine license, the entire game takes place in full 3D. The entire ship, stations etc are all gloriously rendered in rich 3D environments.
The KnightBlade crew of fourteen includes the commander, his XO, navigator, doctor, combat pilots and a bunch of marines who make up a makeshift ragtag army.
Featuring elements of our traditional games, scenarios take place in space and on planets while featuring first person, flight and vehicular combat on a richly detailed world, complete with interior levels for all units that the player interacts with.
Like Hostile Intent - Planetfall, this Xbox 360 game is a pure action title designed for the next generation of gamer. A PC version is planned for release a few months after the console version.
