Jumpgate Evolution | Latest Games

Posted by Deathmetalistic Jyx on 11:30 AM

Jumpgate Evolution (JGE) is an upcoming massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) that is currently being developed by Netdevil and to be published by Codemasters. This is the second installment of the previous Jumpgate: The Reconstruction Initiative. Jumpgate Evolution features all new assets and more accessible gameplay and also a new graphics engine. The game is a MMOG with twitch-based combat and the damage caused by the player will have predictable and constant damage on the target. There is a set of durability through the game, Shields and Armor for example. At the start of the game, the players can pick a nation but this does not limit them to certain roles. The players can buy a ship but they have to acquire a license to be able to pilot the ship. Whether they are a subject the players will also be able to earn standing.

Jumpgate Evolution will also offer both player vs player (PvP) and player versus environment (PvE). The game features instanced PvP with rewards and XP. The developers are also working on implementing other environments just like a system with a lethal death penalty for players who prefer for a more brutal kind of PvP gameplay. Jumpgate Evolution will feature Realm versus Realm (RvR) elements on gameplay also that will allow the player to build up a sector control and claim a sector space for their nation. Unlike from the first game, Squads will be limited to players from a single nation and Squads will play an important role in this. The other nations include The Amananth and Conflux and the Hyperial Protectorate. The amananth is a dead nation and the creator of a single fully automated station in pre-Shift space. While the Hyperial Protectorate was defeated by it's former rival the Quantar nation during an earlier war. The Hyperial Protectorate owns only a single station because the Shift left it without any planet. There's an alien race that ignores any form of communication and also aggressive to all nations called the Conflux. There's a great war between the Humans and the Conflux befire that brought the human race to a close extinction.

Netdevil is aiming to create a single type of server in which all different types of gameplay spread on varieties of areas. The developers allow the players to excel themselves in different types of gameplay everytime they play the game. Just like the previous installment of the game, it also feature the same factions. On the other hand the developer is still planning to split up the gate into different types of servers that is quite impossible to think. The Shift or the passing of time in a significant space distortions event has changed the nations even more than before and only three nations are playable. These three playable nations are the Octavian Empire, the Solrain Commonwealth, and the Quantar Paths. The Octavian Empire is an aggressive and militaristic nation driven to restore itself to former glory while the Solrain Commonwealth is once a benevolent but later became corrupted mercantile state that has a lot of mercenaries, smugglers, and major crime syndicates. Lastly the Quantar Paths were once a unified nation, but now they became unionized because of the same fundamental belief that human destiny lies among the the stars and the Jumpgate itself.
