    Got through the last hour, shame their will be no Blender 3D support for the modding, and no painting tools on the console version of the game.

    Really temped to buy it on the Epic store but I can’t stand that company and I just have no wish to buy anything through them. So I will just have to wait or buy the console version of the game.

    I thought that there was converters for 3d Studio to Blender and vise-versa? Maybe I am wrong so it shouldn’t be much of a show stopper for the modders out there.

    I am not buying this on Epic, I will wait until its on steam, which in a way is for the best… it should be fully patched and all content released on it by the time steam gets it so it will be pretty solid by then.

    The only small comment I thought some people may have some issues with is that it seems like Outlaws control scheme seems like it will be best played on controller (which I don’t mind) and even though its supported all other control methods may be tougher to master or lack ease of use.

    Which kind of makes sense since the stations is basically menus, which is a controller friendly scheme…. so we shall see.

    It’s a long time since I used Blender but I think your right, but it will still require some conversion to get the models from Blender into the game.

    I know they said their are not doing any VR but I just wonder if they had any other cockpit views, like Privateer and Wing Commander.

    Short vid highlighting the use of mouse/keyboard, thought this would have been out by now.

    More game play from the game featuring some cap ship take down, drifting and wingman. Did I see some tiny spacemen come flying out of the cap ship as it takes damage.

    We finally got the release date! Sucks it’s bound to only one store for such a long period, but oh well.

    Means I got at least a year to wait, until I can get it.

    Yes and regardless of the store, waiting for the reviews and first 6 months of polishing patches is always a good move anyway! 🙂

    Definitely agree with that, but I do admire this developer. Its just a shame they couldn’t release on both stores, I would have paid a bit more on Steam I don’t care. But now I will wait for it and if I forget about this game in a year or so when its on steam then that is income lost to the developer. If devs want to make money then make it available on all the PC stores so people have their preference because in the end a happy customer is a loyal customer 😉

    I liked Rebel Galaxy a lot too but no one is forcing these exclusivity deals on the devs (except possibly a publisher if relevant). Allegedly Epic is paying for these, so together with the better revenue split they must have estimated that staying out of Steam was a risk worth taking.
    Incidentally on Gamasutra many indie devs report that games actually sell for a very long period, typically 5 years. And indeed their game does not rely on a population of online players to be enjoyable so I’d guess they will do perfectly fine!

    How to get started in the game video, also the game should be out on the 13 of this month

    Outlaw does look good, I will be interested too see what the community and the developer does with this while I wait for this to hit stream. The game isn’t breaking new ground but it definitely looks very playable and if it allows freedom in modding like in Freelancer this game could be around a long time.

    Indeed thanks. Not so enthusiastic with the optimization for gamepads but I’ll keep an eye on it.
