Stargate: E3 Preview

Stargate: E3 Preview

David "Zeb" Cook, the Lead System Designer for Stargate Worlds, spoke to Jon Wood from E3 about what we can expect now that the pen and paper legend and former City of Villains designer has done since he got his hands on Stargate Worlds.

The game itself is still in a very early stage of pre-production, and already it has generated a great deal of hype, being based as it is, on the extremely popular Stargate franchise. The flagship of the franchise, Stargate SG:1, has already run through its ninth season on the air and spawned a spinoff series, titled Stargate Atlantis.

Creating a game based on such a popular pre-existing idea can be a mixed blessing for developers. There is, of course, the recognition factor. After all, SG 1 wouldn’t still be on the air if it didn’t have an extensive fan base. That fan base alone could make the game a success. On the other side of things, an intellectual property like this comes with a certain amount to responsibility to those fans, as well as to fans of MMORPGs. In that vein, David says that they aim to “take what people want in MMORPGs and make them feel appropriate to Stargate.”
