Summoner Preview, Screen Shots
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Daily Radar has posted another feature concerning Summoner, as part of their week-long special coverage of this upcoming 3D RPG from Volition. This article is an in-depth look at the game after some hands-on experience playing a recent build. While they talk about the Playstation 2 version, keep in mind the Mac and PC builds should be no different except they will also have multiplayer code included, and will be able to be displayed at much higher resolution. Here's an excerpt from the preview which highlights the amount of detail behind the story and characters of the game:

There wasn't a moment when we were allowed to forget that there were sharp class distinctions in the world, either. Joseph's a plowman by birth, and while dockworkers and simple merchants feel right at home talking to him, the local goldsmith will barely spare him a glance no matter how much cash he's got on him. He's shooed away from important areas, glanced at suspiciously by rich merchants and warned away by bodyguards. It's not only Joseph getting kicked around either. Beggars and other farmers are also harassed on the streets by press gangs and thugs, giving a realistic feel to the city and heightening our desire to become huge heroes and show them all.
Be sure to check out the rest of the article for a description of what the gameplay should be like. Also take a look at the new screen shots included with the preview. For even more eye candy, GA-RPG has scored 16 screen shots for themselves, many of which are new. Summoner for the PS2 should be out for the console's North American launch on October 26, with Mac and PC versions following this Winter.
