Guild Software Reveals New Space MMORPG
10:49 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

In a recent update of their website, game developer Guild Software released new information about an upcoming Space based MMORPG, given the working name Vendetta. This is not the same game as the Vendetta Test that is available at the moment, but a new game. While using pieces from the Vendetta Test, the full game will be much larger and have many more features.

From Guild Softwares website:

Planned Features:

  • A technologically advanced 3D engine, developed from scratch to produce an immersive experience across a wide variety of systems.

  • Multiplatform support with simultaneous release on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

  • A fully realtime flight model and combat system brings the intensity and immersion of FPS-style PvP and PvNPC battle action, set against the backdrop of a massively multiplayer universe.

  • A range of highly configurable ships, from small fighters to massive capital, freighter and transport craft.

  • An open ended skill and faction system will permit great variability in a character's role in the universe.

  • A dynamic economy, affected by supply and demand and the political climate of the universe.

  • Extensive communications system, including chat and instant messaging capabilities

  • In-game news system to keep track of current events.

  • User defined missions permit traders to find combat escorts, and visa versa.

  • Group play: team up to control separate defense turrets on a capital ship, or launch in a fighter from its docking bay to enter the fray more directly. Escort the trading freighter of a friend, or lie in wait to pirate the convoys of your enemy.

  • Player-run Guilds allow characters to coordinate on a large scale.

  • Mine for minerals, establish trade routes, and build a financial empire.

  • Explore the unknown. Discover new trade routes, resources, map new systems, perhaps even discovering new races and forms of life?

  • Continual expansion of the game features, after release.
  • The Vendetta MMORPG is currently in development for a simultaneous release on PC, Mac OS X and Linux. Head over to Guild Software's homepage for more information about the game.
