    Indeed, the trailer looked very interesting alrite, one assumes it was all pre-rendered though? :?

    Very Starship Troopery(am I allowed make up my own words?)

    on this forum, you are just speaking english when you say something like that. so you can chillax

    Yes Gizmo, it’s a pre-rendered ‘theatrical’ trailer which nicely hints at the narrative and atmosphere we are aiming for.

    Obviously it’s all top secret, and Ubisoft ensure a drip-fed media information pipeline, but we and they are genuinely excited at what looks like it’s developing into a really dramatic interactive story.

    But now I’m sounding like the Marketing Dept!

    Expect more announcements soon. Keep an eye on our own website (http://www.frd.co.uk/haze/media.php) for more screenshots, if you’re interested.

    Cool, well to be honest it was the narrative that was hinted at that I liked the most…I likes the storylines I do’s. :D

    Definitly looking forward to hearing more about it anyway!

    Reminds me of star ship troopers (the movie, the 1st one, and not the crap sequel and the rubbish game).

    Which is a very good indeed.

    cant wait to hear more.

    Also are the screen shots pre-rendered, something about them makes me think they’re pre-rendered and the hud is just overlayed.. sorry if i seem paranoid, the amount of studios at that these days is unreal. if not looks like the game is shaping up really nice. cool.

    Peter B, I can stake my reputation as a day one member of GameDevelopers.ie (an oath not likely taken) that the screens you see on our website are fully in-game (including HUD – my contribution) and not photoshopped in any way.

    We have lots more environment work to do, but our jungle is looking amazing in-game, and the effects / animations / graphics are truly next-gen.

    God, I really should be in PR.

    Free Radical updated their website.

    Finally :)

  • #31829


    Yeah, we’ve finally taken on a guy to do it. The site got 30,000 hits on the day we announced HAZE!

  • #31830


    I look forward to the game, I like FR past titles (and Nintendo support).

    This one seems to be stylistically quite different than the other past FR titles. I have no doubt it will still maintains the trademark charm!

    Ubisoft seem to be a good publisher (thats me looking from the outside…)

  • #31843


    Yeah, we seem to have a really good relationship with Ubi, and they seem to be on the ball.

    love the tone of the trailer :D
    Nicely animated, too. I like the “do you want to be invicible” bit, or the guy losing it and kicking the camera at the end. Nice touch :)
