E3 Preview & Video Interview

E3 Preview & Video Interview -

At E3, we met with Vogster Senior Designer Mike Donatelli. The Mythic-alumn told us all about CrimeCraft, a modern 3rd person MMO shooter. For them, it's a fight against what perceptions of an MMO are as they try some new things. Check out our preview, with details on what the game is and some neat new features, like an in-game newspaper.

One really cool innovation, which caters perfectly a guild driven, social MMO, is their Newspaper system. The developers of the game will follow the events within the game and every so often put out a new edition of the in-game newspaper, available to players within the world. Inside will be stories, professionally written by the team, about the events in the game world.

This means that if one gang triumphs over another, expect to see a story and some specific references to players. It’s an interesting approach that has not been tried to any degree since Wish, and never in a launched game. The idea is to promote player achievements. There is nothing more likely to keep a player in a game than a certain dose of actual fame among the community. A newspaper is a perfect vehicle to promote that.
