Arkane Studios, makers of Dark Messiah, is currently working on The Crossing, a new FPS that combines singleplayer and multiplayer into CROSSPLAYER! There's a short teaser video available at Gamevideos
This could be cool. It sounds like it's going to be something like Guild Wars where you can do those missions alone or with buddies.
I'm glad they're not working on DM2, DM2 was a disappointment. Waste of a franchise is what it was.
Thinking back to it, I'm not even sure why it was so disappointing. I think maybe because it was sort of a jack of all trades game where it didn't ace any one of the other genres it pulled game mechanics from.
Crossplayer? Is that a new term for people who cos-play as anime characters of the opposite gender? Hard to say where this is headed, from the teaser it looks a bit too much like an uber-counterstrike clone at this point.

Yeah? WTF ? I still don't get what the excitement or "never done before" aspect of it is...
I think the reason is that the trailer doesn't really explain what the "never done before" aspect is. Sure, you know it's some kind of single player/multiplayer hybrid but supposedly it's going to be featured in next week's 1up show in enough detail to explain what they're hinting at.
did anyone else read this with a slight faint hope that this would be about something the same as counter-op mode for perfect dark zero? Where one player plays the good guy, single player, but other players can warp in and play bad guys with really low health to make super smart AI?
Im not buying more games for Arkane, they dont care for the Dark Messiah users, no SDK for mod development, no multiplayer patches to fix the totally unbalanced classes.
They look like a small studio with no time to support their games after launch
So, expect the same in this new game.
If you want an SDK for the source engine look Here
DMM wasn't a BAD game just a shitty use of a license.
I had mindless fun playing it.Not what I was looking for but it was fun.( very very lather,rinse, repeat fun but still)
This will be a wait and see for me.
I'm guessing that this game is going to connect to servers on certain levels and other players will help or hinder you in the game. Concept is ambitious, and already I have doubt they can pull it off because other people are notoriously uncooperative.
