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.
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!
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.
