New online game, looks like a cross between Space Engineers and standard shooter. so nothing really new, going into Steam early access https://store.steampowered.com/app/454120/Starbase/ sometime this year.
My son loves space engineers and I agree it has a lot of those concepts here Pinback. I would like to know more on the MMO mechanics and how close will you be to each other....? Because if you have hundreds of people trying to build stations and the like, you could run into a lot of griefing in game which would be an issue... spending hours building something and go to sleep and wake up and see it destroyed would be a rage moment 🙂
No mention on cost on this one put it does look like fun, I will definitely keep watch on this one.
Honestly, looks too good to be true. I don't believe it will be what it claims.
They are making a lot claims, but the real test will be if they make it out of early access.
These online games tend to just crash and burn.
Another vid about the games features, this one shooting.
Cracking out the vids for this game, That has to be the most generic robot design ever.
Bit of asteroid mining.
I was impressed by this video, people are going to be able to build very sophisticated stations and ships
The technical's behind this game are impressive, its about the little things that count. Hard to believe this is in a MMO and online only game with depth.
New features trailer.
Timelapse of a station being built.
This team is building a nice MMO space game here, I am going to be interested how all this is going to be put together. There is a lot of attention to detail stuff in this game and its the details that usually bog down MMO experiences. So wondering how many players might be on a server or can be in a area? The scope of this game is huge and ambitious so I hope it is successful. The build aspects to this game are amazing and are not in any other game that I remember.
Here is a small video showing off some ship creations and combat:
