Elite Force II Previewed
8:46 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story
Another preview of Ritual Entertainment's Quake 3-based First Person Shooter Star Trek: Elite Force II has been posted. This time it's the folks IGN who have gotten a visit to see this sequel to the popular game Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. The article focuses on storytelling and how important this is for a game based on the Star Trek Universe.
A small excerpt:
It has been very important to Ritual to create a cohesive experience that delivers the constant action Elite Force II is all about through storytelling that's in keeping with the fiction. Even though everyone with eyes, ears, hands, or any combination of the above will tell you that Elite Force II is nothing like your average Star Trek episode (what with all the shooting and the killing), crafting an intricate plot played out in classic Trek fashion is of paramount importance to the team. But, no amount of story is going to save gameplay that's disjointed. Ritual knows this. If you want to know more about Elite Force II, go over to IGN and read the whole article. Don't hesitate to take some time to read our own first look of the game as well.
The boys and girls who created SiN are making every effort to keep the action incredibly fast, but to still immerse the player in an objective driven, refined, Trek storyline and universe overflowing with details and noticeable coolness that non-fans (heathens, blasphemers and pagans) might miss out on.
The PC version of the game is due in June. A Mac version is announced and will be published by Aspyr Media. No release date is set for the Mac version, but we can rely on that Aspyr will try to have it out as soon as they possibly can. We will continue to keep you informed about the status of this game, so keep a hailing frequency open.
