Beyond Dome of York Feature Summary

Beyond Dome of York Feature Summary - MMORPG.com

Martin J. Schwiezer, CEO of Reakktor, has posted an overview of the upcoming Neocron expansion in the News section of the official website.  The expansion, entitled "Neocron: Beyond Dome of York", will be a major overhaul to the game and is slated for release in the second quarter of 2004.  Per Schwiezer, pre-orders will be available on the Neocron website starting March 15.

The plan file covers many aspects of the existing game as well as the expansion.  From the new 3D engine:

The 3D-rendering of the "Tekktonic - Virtual Worlds Engine" gets a major overhaul to take advantage of today's 3D hardware generation's features. Thanks to an upgrade to Direct X 9, the engine will support the nowadays common features like higher texture resolutions, higher polygon counts, and several new shading technologies. This will raise the overall quality of the graphics by quite a bit (real-time bump-mapping, realistic lighting and shadows, photorealistic water etc.).

To the new Wisdom of Ceres skills:

The Wisdom of Ceres (WoC) Skills can only be attained by capped players. E.g. If a tank has reached strength 100, he can continue to gain XP. To reach the first level of WoC-strength, he will not only have to gain a lot of XP, but also find a certain artifact, as well as an NPC that will train him. WoC skills will give you access to a diversity of powerful items like weapons and tools.

It even covers the red-light district:

[A]ll strippers in the game will be replaced by higher detail models with complex motion-capturing animations. This is also true for the peep-shows, bar dancers etc.
