I was starting to get worried that this game had been cancelled, as their website hadn't changed in half a year and the developer hadn't mentioned it either. nothing in the news etc. Well they have a new website now, thats a bonus. This is a sci-fi space game with almost no details released. There's a nice trailer though and the game does look breathtaking.

Interesting, looks like only ship combat though. It is pretty.

A quick mini-review having gone over the website.

A Sci-fi ship based combat game featuring cutting edge graphics and action style space shooter combat mechanics. Ships will be customisable through modifications of various systems (which themselves can be tinkered with). You won't be leaving your ship, at least not at launch.

They story is developed by Michael Marrak, according to wikipedia a german scifi and horror writer. There seems to be two factions battling for control, the Tyi who use cybernetic augmentations and the Genides who favour genetic manipulation, both trace their hereditary back to humans. There's also a third Restorers faction which I think may be the pve mega bosses, the ancient threat foretold about in the teaser trailer. The game also has the ever popular 'achievements' to unlock and brag about.

Clans will be able to build stations, and modifty them to suit their individual needs. They will be able to fight over resource stations. PvP is supposedly a big factor in the game, although the presence of the restorer's hints at a pve aspect as well.

Yeah, lets hope it just doesn't turn out to be the equivalent of Age of Conan in space at launch.

Another exlusive action screenshot over at mmorpg.com along with an interview.

Sounds like there's going to be an Anarchy Online type mission system available for both solo and group action on the fly. PvP elements, particularly but not exclusively with the end game.

Some unofficial IRC channels are being touted, sponsored by fans of the game. Some rumours persist that community managaers are popping into the channels too. =O
