Newsletter Update & Movie

Newsletter Update & Movie -

Icarus Studios recently released their third newsletter.   It included many updates to the state of the game as well as a link to a movie download.  Read it below:

Dear Friends of Fallen Earth™,

Let us first start by apologizing for not sending you this third newsletter sooner. We’ve been very focused on integrating new features into the game which hopefully you will enjoy when you see them.

We have started populating the first starter towns and the outlying areas around them. We have added a number of mutant powers including biologic mutations endowing the player with super human abilities as well as certain mutations that allow the player to control the environment around them. Other major features we have added include projectile based grenades, rocket propelled grenades and mines. Additionally, we have added sniper scopes and vision enhancing visors as well as a host of other features.

Take aim and shoot! Ever step on worms as a kid? C'mon baby, light my fire! A good part of our time has been spent on speed optimizations and we are pretty happy with the performance. We have increased the frame rate by three fold in the last two months and there are still some improvements we are hoping to ring-out.

In addition to optimizations, we have spent much of our time on polishing the game and that is an ongoing process. There are still a number of features we want to add and gameplay issues we want to improve, and we are diligently working our way through them.

This is just a sample of what we have worked on. We could say more, but we feel we would ruin some really exciting surprises coming down the road… so it’s best that we stop here for now and reserve some for the coming news…

Forums? They’ll open when we start our closed betas. We’re tempted to say when, but we still have a great deal to do and it is hard to predict how long all these tasks will take. Some of the game features may require more time than we anticipate, so instead of augmenting your frustration, we ask you kindly to remain patient. We want to produce a game you will truly enjoy, not just work towards some arbitrary date.

As far as selecting Beta testers, we haven’t decided how we’ll select them, but one thing is for certain, it will be fair to all, and the recipients of this newsletter will be among the first contacted.

As a special bonus to thank you for your patience and support, Use this link to download an exclusive new video: Hunting the Sandworm (60 MB; AVI format)

Thanks to the good folk at the WarCry Network for hosting the video!

Thank You

- The Editors
