Infinite Scuba In Development
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Cascade Game Foundry has announced the first product in their portfolio of next-generation simulation games: Infinite Scuba. The simulation will enable players of all ages to experience "the beauty, mystery, and serenity of scuba diving in breathtakingly recreated dive sites around the world."

“We’re thrilled to bring innovative, reality-based underwater exploration to the gaming world,” says Kathie Flood, Managing Director at CGF and a 17-year veteran of the video game industry. “By combining the beauty of the undersea world with the science and adventure of real diving, we will appeal to scuba divers and experienced simulation gamers, as well as more casual gamers interested in exploring and learning about the world’s oceans.”

CGF Development Director Russ Glaeser, another game industry veteran and a passionate diver, is excited about the extensible nature of the game. “Between the world’s wild variety of exotic dive locations and constantly evolving technologies in the diving world, our gameplay possibilities are truly infinite.”

In the initial release of the downloadable game, players explore Chuuk Lagoon, a renowned dive destination in the South Pacific and the site of a pivotal World War II battle between Japanese and American forces. In the years since that battle, the Chuuk shipwrecks have transformed into thriving reefs. Players search for fish and coral, as well as many other artifacts from the war, each of which unlocks a page of local history or dive science. Players exploring the wrecks can take photos to share with friends and earn diving certifications which unlock additional content. Players can easily purchase and download new equipment, challenges, and dive sites from inside the game.

Cascade Game Foundry hopes to release Infinite Scuba for Mac and Windows PCs in the first quarter of 2013.

Questions Answered About The Elder Scrolls Online
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

ZeniMax Online Studios has posted the results of the first "Ask Us Anything" Q&A answering fan questions about the upcoming MMO adaptation of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls universe. The developer answered questions on a variety of topics related to The Elder Scrolls Online.

This might also entail the rest of the game, but how big will Morrowind be compared to how big it was in TES 3? I get that the landscape will be different, but will it still be the same size, and have a similar layout? – By Ryon Burridge

It’s difficult to make a direct size comparison between the two, as they actually take place in different areas of Morrowind. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind takes place on the northern island of Vvardenfell. In The Elder Scrolls Online, you’ll get to explore Morrowind’s mainland and see areas you’ve never seen before, or haven’t seen in to the level of detail we’re presenting it in. One such area is Deshaan, the region of southern Morrowind that borders Black Marsh. That’s not to say adventurers in The Elder Scrolls Online won’t ever be able to visit Vvardenfell.
