Webzen has released some new screenshots of Huxley, the upcoming Unreal Engine 3 powered MMO first person shooter for Xbox 360 and PC.
Graphics looks good but Unreal Tournament 3 looks better IMO.
But UT3 isn't an online RPG.
But UT3 isn't an MMOFPS with 100v100 players online.
oh well you know what is an MMO, were hundreds if not thousands of people play together in the same open world while UT3 is freaking arena shooter!
Its entering closed beta testing this coming week.So there is still enough time to add a bit more graphical polish.
From what i see already it looks great.Cant wait for this MMOFPS with over hundreds of players.
So they can't really have great graphics. But looks good for that amount of action that will be happening.
its an mmo plus unreal tournament is handled by epic the masterminds of unreal engine. I cnt believe this is another shooter though. 1 of my friends who got a ps3 was complaining why are there so many fps's. He bought heavenly sword and resistance and he is looking forward to lost planet lol. only reason he bought a ps3 was for mgs and god of war. It really sucks that shooters are essentially dominating this gen. i could handle the occassional shooter on ps2 but everywhere i look there isa shooter. blacksite, time shift, orangebox(5 shooters in 1), unreal tournament. Its not like i hate shooters personally but devs need to chill with the shooters
Well if you remember the PS1 era it was mostly populated with beatem ups.If this was just another FPS i would definitely complain because i am getting a bit tired of FPS, but its a MMOFPS,so for me thats highly welcomed.
There are other games coming out next year that are not FPS on the 360 next year
NINJA GAIDEN 2
And even the 1st person shooters announced so far seem to be all different or trying to offer something new
I can't wait for the 360 line up.
It's gonna fill single player / campaign spot
yea it prob was. the only games on that line up am looking forward too are probably banjo and ninja gaiden. also looking forward to left 4 dead a zombie fps should be pretty interesting. alan wake cnt really be siked for it till i see gameplay. too human too be honest looks lame to me. not really into mmo's so doubt i'll be getting the fps mmo's. seriousl looking forward to banjo i really loved the old 1's on N64. i played sigma on ps3 and really liked it so i jst gotta get gaiden 2.
I admit there are a lot of fps but Huxley was announced a long time ago before you ever heard of time crisis and cod 4 for this gen. It is a game that has been in development and closed beta for a while. http://www.huxleygame.com/
I haven't even heard of this game. But a fps MMO sounds kind lame. Leave the MMO racket to the RPG guys. I can't see this game doing well with what it is. But it is good that it has an offline campaign. If it turns out good I might think about buying it on PC. I just hope that if they put both PC and Console gamers together they make it balanced for the console guys. You never know I could change my view on it now that I know it is even coming lol.
on 360????? Ill believe it when i see it in person lol
uhhh... it's comming... microsoft is being working on this technology for a while.. and showed a prototype a while back... see the link..
Soon... when developers are able to make any xbox 360 game capable of handling hundreds of gamers simply using P2P... and the Sony needing dedicated servers to handle 32... it will be a very fun sight to watch...
hundreds of players on P2P? Hello lag!
What's wrong with MS? Why can't they at LEAST get dedicated servers from 1st party titles. We fricking pay for online
game is going to have dedicated servers or is going to use the new multiplayer tech that Bladestar is describing. MS has been behind the scenes creating technology that is going to improve performance for all P2P based games.
Is an MMO FPS... similar to Planet Side... how about battles with up to 200 players simultaniously? How is that for how UT graphics?
Please should stop trying to compare this game to any on any other console. specially UT... the fact that this game is an MMO that allows so many players to play at the same time.. and have RPG elements... it just pee on any other game in terms of replay value... yeah.. if done right.. this game will be played for years... compared to Unreal Tournament single player campaign.. and the eventually repetitive online matches...
You should be ashame.. of mentioning Huxley and Unreal Tournament on the same sentence....
i see UT3 being played for more years then this. people still play the first UT online. an MMO is only as good as its content. from what ive read i havent seen anything about user items you can makes, crap like that. however i have researched this title because it doesnt interest me that much.
200 players online, in one battle. it will be very interesting if they can pull it off without a hitch.
1st) This game LOOKS Great.
2nd) Unreal is a REVIEWED already game, that people WILL be picking up.
3rd) This game could have FRAME RATE problems, which wouldn`t be very cool for a FPS
4th) this game was suppose to be out a LONG time ago, so their obviously having some problems.
5th) Eveything this GEN will look GREAT it about how it plays, and you don`t know how this plays, do you?
Looks amazing! Like a Fallout fps MMO.
the only question is the storyline as much as people will enjoy massive fragfest if its not built around a decent storyline/universe the game is going to be just fun for a while but not for long.
I see why the hybrids (xbox360 players) are gonna be fighting for their survival just imagining how much ownage the K&M pc players will be delivering will make the game extremely tactical for Hybrids
I see that could go wrong with this title is the servers. If it is to be played on Xbox Live 200 people in one game could cause a huge problem. Heck I get lag in a game with 16 people. If this is to make it they need to work on those servers. People who play MMO's know if the servers are laggy people will not play the game. If they figure that out it could be good as long is there is not another fee involved on top of the live service.
Since it's an MMO you're 99% going to get charged a monthly fee, that will ensure the servers don't suck.
I'm just glad this game isn't canned, it's been in dev forever it seems and I've wanted it the whole time.
The ability to have hundreds of players on the 360 is a technology that Microsoft is working on.So any developer will simply just incoperate it into their own games if they so wish.
So i doubt there will be an extra fee for this.Dont mind paying for xbox live, but if there were to add an extra fee just because of HUXLEY then,i ain't getting it.
It looks nothing like the earlier screens we saw, seems to have taken a massive hit. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE DEVELOP ANOTHER ENGINE OUTSIDE OF THE UNREAL ONE? Thanks.
100's of people online is a bad thing for the console. Something is definitely going to take a hit, either characters or the environment. I doubt its going to be "100's of people" on screen at one time, just in different maps like City of Heroes. So "100's" will be online, but not interacting.
After seeing Gears only being able to handle such a small number, and Halo3, Lets just see if the developers can pull off "200 people on screen at once" As I see mentioned earlier in the thread. PDZ seems to be the limit as far as character definition/environments. Huxley needs to deliver on this claim. And not try to cheat it. It means nothing to get 100's of players together when all the character models are 10 polygons.
I want to see 200 players on my screen, IF thats what they claimed.
Call me skeptical.
Is that a lemming in your avatar?
i remember CoH and leading raids with close to 300 ppl in one area, all using their powers at once. lag lag lag. graphics all the way down. then they are trying to do it with a console? im skeptical as hell with ya.
is going to blow chunks.
Give me a break.....lol this game will degrade into fools blasting each other en masse...
And yet ANOTHER game to use Unreal Engine. That just pisses me off. Seems nobody wants to dip into the creativity well these days. Or....nobody has a money hat that's deep enough, ha.
hope it works because by the time this is out i should have my Elite
looks decent for being a online MMO. i only hope doesn't play like shadowrun. lots of expectation.
Yeah, this game is shaping up really nice.
You Sony fanboys are crazy this looks good for a Multi player or MMO.
How do you get rid of this PS fanboy filth?.
double post :(
drop your high and mighty act. its worn thin. to call ppl filth for their own opinion when they dont attack anyone is idiotic. and i know your smarter than that. but your acting like a moron.
someone said "UT3 looks better imo". its a god damn PC game to. and another said "5000 ppl on 360? ill believe it when i see it". ill believe it when i see it. ive seen high end PC's not handle games with hundreds of ppl at one time. ::rolleyes::
Looks better than Most PS3 games to me.
You can play this game in third person
This game looks good but saying what you said is just plain stupid, not an opinion.
This game looks great!!! It reminds me so much of GOW that it makes me exited!
I just hope you don't have to pay extra to play the MMO part of the game!
By the way Huxley is going to have dedicated servers on xbox live.
good thing because Bladestar thinks that P2P can handle 200 people at the same time lol...
Looking great in perspective, i hope there's a lot of customization on guns and lots of skills (COD4-style)
@ud - Did you follow the link I provided? obviously not... I don't think... I know... If you read about this technology.. then you will know how it's possible... go on... remove your Sony fanboy hat for 5 seconds and follow the link.. it will not kill and.. Sony will not know you cheated on them for a few minutes...
I'm a programmer... me knowing more than you about this topic is a given... If you think you know that much about game networking... explain to me how come FPS max out with 64 Player with dedicated servers... and a single server on an MMO game like WOW can handle hundreds if not thousands of players?
Did you know that dedicated server and P2P pretty much work the same way? That the only benefit a dedicated server have is the available bandwidth?... mmm... well... it depends... if I am using a T1 during a P2P game session no one would experience lag?
The link I provided show a video.. that even non-programmers and network people can understand that this is possible... because they explain how they are doing it. It makes all sense... obviously some people are too stupid and asumed that I was talking about existing P2P... lol.
graphics aren't even that good, and the environments are low-poly. The devs have been claiming "Hundreds of players at once", but I've never seen a screen with more then 5~10 players in view at any given time. Hopefully it's not zoned off, 'cause I would love to see epic battles. I just don't expect to see any in this title.
but it looks better than halo 3..
This game needs to step it up to contend with gears 2 and killzone..
If there are about 2-300 if not thousands of players, it will be pretty hard to get some really good graphics. But it´s not everything.
