NowGamer has weighed up the evidence ahead of Irrational Games' Project Icarus reveal tonight and reveals what it believes to be Ken Levine's new project.
Please, please, please let it be System Shock 3.
It would be cool, but do enough younger gamers know about System Shock to make it bankable? I'm not sure but I really would like to see a new sequel.
Reboots are all the rage these days. Looking forward to the new XCOM game too. Mind you, that latest Deus Ex trailer didn't really do it for me.
Whats System Shock?
In additions to Feckles point about XCOM, you forgot about Fallout 3? I doubt 90% of that audience REALLY played the originals. System Shock on a next gen platform with all the polish Levine brings? Could sell tons.
Since when was Tribes compared to turn based strategy games?
Or real time Samurai strategy games? That had me confused too. I thought for a second that maybe the dude was mixed up with Settlers of Catan or maybe one of Molyneux's later Populous games or something.
i would love system shock 3 and i recon its highly likely but i would have thought that would have been more of an e3 type thing to announce
Seriously. Fans mentioned every possible Irrational/Levine sequel in the Irrational podcast.
Not to mention that it was confirmed Levine was working on "an original project which could become a new franchise" as early as April this year.
That Darkness 2 guess was pretty well researched, I doubt it will be that though.
The reveal at? I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the trailer because the only Internet connection I have is through Wi-Fi on my iPhone 4 (I'm on holiday) and for some reason it won't play videos abroad. I fly back tomorrow morning so's I'll have to wait until I'm home to see it... Can't wait. I'm loving all the mystery around the title and am really intrigued as to why we must see the trailer 15 minutes before information is released in press, Ken Levine said there was a good reason for it...what could it be?!
you gave us five suggestions , which one would I ote for the rumor poll
please be darkness 2 :).. although if it isnt, i can see them actually revealing "haha its actually called project icarus" lol
Isn't The Darkness 2 being made by Digital Extremes, apparently? I think that Irrational are capable of so much more.
I would really love to see an HD version of System Shock 2. That way the can't fuck up a sequel and ruin the franchise. Just give me the original game that will run on my Xbox / PS3 and I'll be greatful. It was my favorite game of all time. I would love to revist it and share it with my kids.
and so is everyone else on this page. Mark my words and come back tomorrow, you'll see after the reveal that everyone above me has it wrong...
We all could be. But so could you. It may actually be called Project Icarus.
but can't talk about it. Look up......
" Another superb relic from Ken Levine's CV, Tribes could make a return, but we can't help but feel it would pale compared to Shogun: Total War 2 and Civ 5. 2/5" WTF? What does a team based FPS game have to do with a turn base strategy game or an RTS about Samurai? Besides that Garage games is currently the (middleware oriented) studio with the most Tribes people in it. they even did a Tribe's-like browser game. Anyway, Levine's Tribes: Vengeance was an attempt to restart Tribes that largely failed to catch on. So what the hell are they talking about? Also does anybody really want a new Darkness game? I don't think I do.
