Shattered Horizon

So I know there was a couple of previews about this from gamescom & beta signups & whatever, but since it's out now I'm curious how many people actually have it and are playing.

For anyone who doesn't know it's a near-future zero-g space-based multiplayer-only FPS... think a little like descent but more open and much prettier

Personally it's been a long time since I played a game that I actually found challenging to pick up, it's beautiful, plays incredibly well & it feels.... refined - things like movement are absolutely spot on, aiming feels good, the balance between weapons, grenades, flying and walking is all excellent.

Only thing it lacks really is content (and replayability as an extension of that), having only 4 maps and 3 game modes, but Futuremark seem to be pretty intent on releasing free DLC with extra content and bug fixes on a good schedule...

Either way it's 14bux on steam and worth it IMO. Some random pics below for anyone who hasn't seen it before (on empty server ):











Lack of AA because I have to take screenshots in windowed mode

And a couple of the trailers released on youtoob:




(Probably the best showcase of the.... 6DOF )

Also Hi I'm still lurking

Re: Shattered Horizon

I spotted you playing this the other day Maz (good to see you're still about!), and was going to interrupt your session to see what it's like.

I'll get round to getting it eventually, but at the moment it feels like its a 'summer drought 2010 game'.

I think it suffers a bit from not having a playable demo or single player, because it's quite a big change from your standard FPS - I think people are a bit reluctant to put down cash for it because of that in part, and also because it's futuremarks' first game.

Either way they've impressed me with the game and their communication with their (granted, small) community, I just hope they do a free weekend on steam or something like that sometime, it would be quite awesome and I think bring a lot more people into the game

Re: Shattered Horizon

Is it 'Shiny' being Futuremark's creation?

The passes will expire after 30 days so don't wait too long to give them out.

Glad I pre-ordered now
