lol, look up an old title called RF online and compare these two!

this game is probably going to end up better made that RF but it's still pretty obvious that it's a clone, pay specific attention to the general designs of the Rodon and Accretian factions.

@Fakeassname Played RF extensively back in the day, although grindy, there are worse games out there.

Rodon don't really look much like Accretians to me, they look more like doctor Manhattan wearing armour.

Anyways, considering the lack of good scifi mmorpg these days, I have high hopes.

I remember seeing just the title page a few months back; the designs seemed more "kiddyfied" (or geared for toys).

Reading through the expanded site now, there does seem to be some nice things; I will have to keep an eye on it and see how deep the stat-building stuff is (I do see crafting in-game, that is a good sign of game-depth). Some of the human helmets could be a tad better in the style department (That one with a skull painted on looks nice).

I am also reminded Planetside2 is not too far away (although it doesn't have the nice alien/different-looking races for their factions).

RF clone or something else, at least it is worthy to keep an eye on for the Sci-Fi elements (and have to see how deep the PvE and PvP is!).

@Space Cobra


Really nice things, It even has corpse looting it in for stealing resources off other players.

As for it looking "kiddyfied", i think that has to do with it being futuristic. People are going to be wearing metallic underwear instead of loincloths like fantasy games.

And I think that Planetside2 is going to be further away than this as it's just had it's reveal this month (yes, same as Prime, but Prime is said to have been in work 2 years already and they're releasing it within a year (vs. Ps2 is 2012 "sometime")

As for RF clone, that's a laugh! This is a DAoC clone if anything even has Sanya in it!

I was planning on picking up a copy of Planetside 2... up until they mentioned station cash and now I won't touch it. If this title doesn't do something silly like that I may just have to actually look into it and see if it is something I should try.

Hell, at this point I may just try any subscription title that is released simply to show there is still demand for titles that don't have cash shops.

"As for it looking "kiddyfied", i think that has to do with it being futuristic. People are going to be wearing metallic underwear instead of loincloths like fantasy games."

It's a bit more subtle than that here; basically I am talking the difference between a Saturday Morning Kids Sci-Fi cartoon and a Big-Budget Sci-Fi movie; there's more simple designs here that lack details, like shoulder pads. Google up "Gormiti Toys" and see that those figures could easily fit here. (Basically, the colors are a bit too bright.)

@SnarlingWolf

If Planetside2 has good game play, I will come. Same as this. If not, I may slink off either or both. Cash Shops don't scare me...much, but a sub game better show off it's stripes and dazzle me over the long-haul. Probably I do have more expectations for a Sub game, like many folks and when a game fails to meet them, I may get disgruntled (like most). F2P titles, I don't have too many expectations so they have more chances to surprise me (unless we get some play-to-win items, then I do agree on that being a turn-off, especially in this type of game.)

I saw the video where he says it is made with the hero engine, same engine used for swtor. Then I looked at the screenshots and thought the graphic style is almost the same as swtor. It would be nice to see another graphic style made with the hero engine.

It looks interesting - there's not really enough information to make an informed decision on it, but I'll keep an eye out

Is this an FPS? If so, not interested. If not, well then I am. :)
