New Parsec Screenshots
12:36 PM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

The Parsec web site has been updated with yet another screen shot of the month, this time showing a previously unrevealed ship: The Assassin. Also new at the site are a selection of wallpapers for download, all showing this new craft. Last month's screen shot, showing an unnamed ship, started the search for a relevant moniker with a request being sent out to all readers. Following this the ship will now be officially known as The Silverhawk.

For those of you who haven't heard of Parsec, it is being described as commercial-quality freeware (CQF) and will be a multiplayer cross-platform 3D space combat game, somewhat in the vein of the classic title Elite, but brought up to date with full OpenGL and Glide-enhanced graphics. Individual servers will represent portions of space, independent "galaxies," with jump-points connecting each area to create a massive playing area. The game is being developed for Win32, MacOS and Linux with a LAN-test being released last Autumn. For more info on this ambitious project or to download the LAN-test pop over to the official web site.
