Are the British ready for a big dose of space combat?
With Codemasters firmly secured away as their publisher, the folks at NetDevil are now working hard to bring a playable build of their online space combat game to Connect. Without further rhetoric, here's the official press release:
Codemasters Online today revealed that their next MMORPG set for release in 2008, Jumpgate will be fully playable at their forthcoming 2-day community event, Codemasters Online Connect.
Available to play across 400+ machines this will be the first chance players have to get hands on with Codemasters Online’s latest blockbuster MMORPG set for release in Winter 2008. Lucky attendees to Connect will also walk away with an exclusive BETA key for Jumpgate as part of the gift pack being distributed to all attendees at the show.
'We are excited to be unveiling Jumpgate to the press and public at Connect," commented Edward Relf, Director of Marketing, Codemasters Online. "Connect is the perfect platform for us to demonstrate this amazing next generation MMORPG and look forward to letting gamers get hands on with this twitch-based space epic."
Recently unveiled as Codemasters Online’s next MMORPG, Jumpgate is the definitive space combat MMO immersing players in an intense action-packed universe. Embarking on an immersive and accessible space adventure, players can trade valuable commodities, take part in dangerous outer-space raids, meet and play with friends and live out the dream to become an elite hero or infamous space pirate. The game features both a rich and varied universe to explore and has been designed for experienced and novice MMO players alike.
Developed by the US-based MMOG developer NetDevil, Jumpgate is a space-based MMO incorporating all-new action style gameplay like never seen before in any previous online game.
