Well Stargate fans it will take some time but the game is being made! Cheyenne mountain entertainment is working around the clock to bring you a great online experience of the Stargate universe. SGW is a real time combat MMO that will take you too the far reaches of our universe using a alien device called The Stargate.
There are thousands of stargates that are connected with each other on different plants and are usually environmental friendly toward humans. The lore suggests that it is because humans came to being because of the stargates that aliens used and put the humans there. The aliens in this case were an evil monarchy based race that controlled it’s followers by introducing themselves as godlike beings.
That’s all the lore you need to know to gain an interest into the universe. If you are hungry for more I suggest you take look at anything that exists with the word stargate in it including the movies and series.
About the game mechanics is little known. The developers said that combat will be third person tactical shooter with various classes so go figure.
The classes are Archeologist, Asgard, Goa’uld (which by the way I will be playing), Jaffa, Scientist, Soldier and Commando. Each archetype is restricted to a certain race though.
The game will have a main storyline for each archetype. It is speculated that the stories will intertwine at some point. The developer’s main aim is to deliver the classical archetypes from the series into the game giving, mostly fans, the ability to play the series. I saw that smirk on your face you Stargate fans!
You just can’t wait to be O’Neil or Shepard and make variations on those names.
The developers also promise a huge amounts of planets that will be big. When I say big I mean “It is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to the planets.” – minor edit.My thought is that it has high potential however if it will have a nice launch with good game play we could have a nice MMO on our hands. Let’s just hope it doesn’t end like Tabula Rasa did.
