    Welcome!

    If you've made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

    If not, you're still welcome!

    I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

    I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

    I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

    With the power of today's computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

    With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

    If you've played my games, you'll know that's what I love to do.

    I'm here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

    I hope you'll be as excited by it as I am.

    My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

    If you register below you'll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the game's website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. It's my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

    The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

    My name is Christ Roberts.

    And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you.

I Really liked Outlander.

Anyway.

I hope this is a Privater/Freelancer persistent world that uses a Minecraft like hosting system. :)

I wonder if it will be in the same "world" I'm guessing not since EA probably owns it. I signed up on the site because I would kill for a wing commander style space sim to come back!

Sounds promising. Website is a bit bugged though :P

I open the site in Opera, and I get a countdown with an "enter access code" message. I am, however, unable to actually click on the text-entry field and enter the code.
I open the site in IE 8 (oh, hush) and I never see the countdown, but instead skip directly to a welcome letter and an enlist button :P

I was just thinking, with playing SWToR and Raph posting, why both SW mmos failed so hard with space combat, and wouldn't it be cool if there was a Wing Commanderish mmo? At any rate I'll look forward to this.

SWG Space Combat was quite awesome.  It's just they didn't have it at launch.

Though I'd still love a new Privateer.  (Military life isn't for me. ;)

For a more complex simulation with a hard learning curve, we have the excellent "X" series, so I'm perfectly fine with it; but I would really look forward to a more cinematic and plot driven experience that goes alongside a more accesible simulation aspect (Freelancer tried to do exactly that).

I've got my golden ticket and can't wait to see what he has going. I loved the WC series because it hit that sweet spot of space flight simulation and story. Is Freelancer the one that came out with the mouse controls a few years ago? I never did get around to finishing it because it was lacking, well, something I never put my finger on. I thing it was basically a story and characters that I cared about.

I wonder, will he try FMV again or go with CGI cutscenes?

Yeah, came out in like '03 I think.

It was supposed to be a sequel to Starlancer, in the lame "it takes place a thousand years later in a different place and has none of the same ships, factions, characters, or setting" way.  I never played Wing Commander, but I really liked Starlancer, between missions it had these neat little first person FMVs whenever you switched from one screen to the other so it really felt like you were walking around in the carrier.  That blew my mind at the time.  It was also kind of hilarious in that it had a killboard where all the top aces from the war were listed, and you'd see new pilots move up the ranks or older pilots removed when they died, but nobody apparently noticed that your character was sitting at the top with like double the number of kills as the "elite top ace" everyone else fawns over.

That happened in the Wing Commander games too. You'd hear about how some pilot was the best ever and you'd look at the killboard and he'd have like 6 kills and you'd have 37.

Wing Commander Privateer (which I didn't try for my first time until a few years after Freelancer hit) can actually do the same type of mouse control, which I found kind of surprising. It's also quite fun.

Freelancer is right up there on my list of games I would love to have another of. Space trading/combat sims are a bit of an unloved genre I feel.

Free lancer was closer to Privater, obviously they were on the same line.

Did you watch the whole presentation?

The vector thrust system is fucking nuts!

EDIT: Also, AVATARS!

Quote
After a quick tour around the asteroid field, Roberts parked his ship on an exterior wall of the enormous carrier ship, where some other spacecraft had been parked. He exited his own ship, walked across the exterior of the carrier, and boarded another small craft, before flying back around and landing the second craft in the belly of the carrier.

Quote
Furthermore, Star Citizen will include what Roberts describes as "Millenium Falcon-style" ships, in which player will actually be able to get up and walk around to different stations. Friends can climb aboard and mount the turrets in the back. Even more exciting, was the prospect that some player-controlled ships would be large enough to carry a smaller ship in its hanger bay that a friend can jump into when the fighting breaks out. A helpful thing if, as Roberts put it, "we're going on a trading mission to the edge of the galaxy where there's no law and order."

Saw the video earlier. Looks freakin' amazing and does everything I've wanted since (Sky, say it with me): Freespace 2  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?; however, a crowd-sourced PC game launching after the next console generation comes, from a guy nobody's heard from for the last two console generations, yea, I'm not holding my breath.

But I'm downloading that video and keeping it. Forever.
