Will the game be one on one battles in the in game and melee fights ?
I'm starting to worry as i've seen a demo in 2014 showing swarm type battles that feels very much alienated to star control 's immersive one on one battles. With each ship's unique abilities and each ship's uniquely detailed exciting weaponry, The ships in the 2014 demo also lacked detail and character, just spammed 100s of ships looking the same, the main ship standing stationary which i'm not even sure if it is the ship you are fighting with, and seeing a crazy amount of
firing repeated laser type beams everywhere sigh.... that really disconnected me from star control like battles, hopefully that was just a test concept, it felt very much rts like.
No fluent movement, no interacting main planet, though space and the background looks good, it's not interacting with the battle as in sc2, please tell me it was just a very early test run.Now THIS is a Melee battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7_rm_l7WvI
The ships have space to move, not a eternal load of ships and fire cluttering up the sky.
Everything is constantly moving while the thrust of your ship, countering the planet's gravity made for a winning recipe !
In combination with the ship's very immersive physics and unique capabilities, it felt like you were actually flying the ship ! ! !
countering the immersive environment and physics !
This is what star control battles is all about ! ! !
