Master of Orion III Images, Status Update
9:25 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Master of Orion III web site has been updated recently with an update on their status as well as five new screen shots from the game. The update addresses concerns fans are expressing over a recent lack of updates to the web site. The team emphasizes they are very busy with the game and still shooting for a release in Q1 of 2002 (around March). Here's a clip from the full update:

In the recent last few weeks we've received quite a few e-mail messages asking for the status of the project and when we'd make our next web site update. Well, as you can imagine things are a bit hectic but we're still actively working on MOO3 and have even added a few resources recently. As for the release date we're still aiming for 1st quarter of 2002 (which would put MOO3 on the shelves at the end of March). If that changes at all we'll try to let everyone know.

We also have a new update for everyone! We apologize for the lack of updates recently, but the same people that are updating the site are also busy trying to get the game ready for release. For this update we've included some new concept artwork as well as some aliens in their native environments. Three new discussion board compilations will follow shortly. Lastly, and as a special treat for those who have been patient with us, we've included an example of what the political animations will look like. The file is about one third of the length as it will be in the game due to download speeds but you'll get the idea.

Definitely head over and check out the new screen shots now, if you're a fan of the MOO series. Also read through the rest of the update, which also sends out best wishes (and a nice piece of sketch art) to those affected by the recent terrorist attacks.

We'll keep you posted as Master of Orion III heads through development and is published early next year by MacSoft.
