Jumpgate Evolution
 
I know almost everyone saw the trailer on websites that hosted E3(gamespot,ign, etc.) Since space simulators are the last true PC games besides RPG's and RTS's, I'm just wondering if anyone cought any interest in it.

I think its sure to replace EVE online. I havent seen a game like this since Freelancer.

But this game is being published by CodeMasters. I can see the game being released within a year or two.

And? Read what Codemasters did to DDO:Stormreach or other MMOs, they are for sure no heros in that genre. Beside that JGE was announced for 2008 and it looks like NetDevil has all priorities set to Lego Universe... Whatever i dont care anymore for MMOs, seen waaaaay to much overhyped crap the last years.

Cronik 09-03-2010 11:14

Whatever


This one is a free-to-play game. These take forever to get finnished. http://www.blackprophecy.com/index.php?id=6

Dunno if Jumpgate Evolution will ever be released over 2 years overdue now & not holding my breath for a release anytime soon :( .

I agree. Eve isn't a space sim in the slightest, and neither is the X series. They're more trading/empire building type games with a little poorly executed sim thrown in.

I welcome any true space sim though. The last one that came out that was good was Freespace 2.

Codemasters didn't so anything to DDO, they only run the EU servers, it was the developer Turbine that made and still runs DDO. Codemasters are also the publisher for Jumpgate, the developers are Netdevil.

Sprecker 09-03-2010 15:31

All the links to "comunity site" and "sign up to test" are broken on their website if that's any indication of what they are doing.

Oh sorry i forgot publishers are never responsible for any BS going on, its always the developer. Dude...

Again showing nothing but ignorance, Codemasters hosted the EU servers for DDO, Turbine hosted the US ones themselves and have control over what happens with NA and EU, Codemasters do not develop or have any say over what happens with DDO.

The same with Jumpgate, CM are just hosting the servers, they do not decide how it is developed. That is upto NetDevil and their parent company Gazillion Entertainment.

Ahh yes, CM is only hosting the servers. They do not run support forums for their games or collect the money to play. Suuure. Whatever i prefer a healthy amount of ignorance over pure fanboism and smartassness...

Jumpgate Evolution, commonly abbreviated as JGE, is a massively multiplayer online game currently being developed by NetDevil and published by Codemasters. The game is a sequel to Jumpgate: The Reconstruction Initiative and features a new graphics engine, all new assets and more accessible game play.
Source: Jumpgate Evolution.

Follow the links throughout this article. These all seem to backup the claim that CodeMaster has little to do with it other than publishing it. NetDevil is the developer.

I am interested in Black Prophecy. So far that game is looking good as well.

First off i am not a fanboi, i barely follow this game (more interested in GW 2 or SWToR), i am just providing correct information, you on the other hand clearly have little understanding or history with MMO's.

Do you honestly believe that CM are responsible for DDO? You do know that at the time Turbine were a private company and publishing was handled by ATARI. CM were brought in by Turbine to handle the billing and servers for the EU and only the EU regions. They handled the NA regions themselves, so Turbine develop the game and run it themselves in NA, ATARI publish it, and CM handle the EU servers, how the hell is how the game turned out CM's fault?

CM will have no say in how Jumpgate is developed, NetDevil the developers are owned by Gazillion Entertainment and not CM, so any development decisions are made by those two parties.

Vood007 09-05-2010 11:06

Even if you repeat yourself and try to correct me on things i never said, codemasters was responsible for the community and they simply didnt give a fart on DDO EU, they simply let it die but made the community believe the F2P model is coming to EU too. The same lack of information is going on with JGE since over a year now. CM is the no1 when it comes to unfulfilled promise. DLC for GRID on PC is another example. I dont say their games are bad but their PR sucks.

DireBadger 09-05-2010 13:59

Their PR does suck but like i said with the MMO's they are invloved with, they only run servers and handle billing, yeah the have forums and community stuff but it's not their fault that things happened in DDO that you did not like. CM take feedback and send it to Turbine who then make decisions on it.

They also handle the EU side of The Lord of The Rings Online for Turbine and they haven't done anything wrong with that game.

And as for things you never said, you blamed Codemasters for the state of DDO when all the blame lies with Turbine for neglecting the EU side of the game.

Cronik 09-05-2010 15:26

Dear god^

Why you people so negative? Have some hope. If JGE isn't released theres always hope for Black Prophecy.

So, does anyone know what happened to it?

I've read about lawsuits, studio closures and employee layoffs,
all spread over the web from various unreliable sources.

What's the news? Is it dead? Will it be released some day?
It looked to me like the perfect Freelancer alternative,
after being utterly dissapointed by Black Prophecy.

Way to dig out an ancient thread, i know.

scatman839 02-04-2012 14:39

The game is deader than dead, no chance of release.

The Michael 02-04-2012 15:08

Well ****, but thanks for clarifying scatman.

Seems like these days all the gems are slowly dying,
and mainstream "AAA" titles pop up like it's christmas... shame.
