EV: Nova Hits Beta 5; New Media
10:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A new update to Ambrosia Software's progress log for Escape Velocity: Nova brings word the game has hit beta five. Since the previous beta stage was expected to be one of the last, we can assume beta five is that much closer to a release version. Do keep in mind, though, that the team has set no official release date for this third in the popular EV series.

To complement the news on beta five, Ambrosia president Andrew Welch has been busy posting teaser images and movies to the Nova message boards. While both of the QuickTime movies are high resolution, they only weigh around 3.4 MB, making for an easy download for most anyone. The first shows off some of the impressive outfits available in the game, while the second highlights the inventory of a local shipyard. The movies show the impressive amount of detail contained in Nova, so EV fans should definitely head over and have a look. Those wanting even more media should poke around the official message boards a bit, as Welch has also posted some impressive screenshots in other threads.
