X06: Shadowrun presentation

X06: Shadowrun presentation

Last video by SnakeX for the X06, here is a presentation of Shadowrun. Who would have thought after E3 that this game have changed that much graphically? The presentation is in french, if you guys really want me to I can create a subtitled version but it won't be ready until at least very late tonight.
Update 2: Subtitled version online. It's a quick and dirty job, but it's better than nothing.

Subtitles would be awesome but if you just wanna give a quick summary of the important things said that would be just as good! Merci bien.

Just a quick question... Have you captured some Forza Motorsport 2 footage, since theres no real content about that on any other gaming sites?
Commented on 2006-09-29 16:25:22
Is there any mention of how many players it will have online in total?

Was this vista or 360?

Filming forza 2 wasn't allowed.
Rox: This was running on a 360, but some of the players in the video were playing the PC version.

I suppose they didn't say why? Did you see much of it yourself, how did it look?

I dont know why I feel this game will end up like Perfek Dark 0. Just another regular FPS for 360.

Here is the translation of what they are saying:
Shadowrun is a countersrike type game: You play in teams.

There are many modes of play, like CTF which is the most known.

The difference is that you have special powers, like teleportation that allows you to cross walls, and thus escape.

Do all have the same powers?

There are many races, elves, humans, each having different powers, like trolls have regenerating powers, in general, the bigger you are, the more weapons you can carry, the smaller and lighter you are, the more precise and faster you will be.

This is something that will affect gameplay (DUH!)

There is also a glide option where you can get to points you would not be able to get otherwise.

So what is interesting is that you will be able to have many different tactics than counterstrike which is pretty limited because you are just walking, and you cannot go trough walls etc.

It's super hot to do the demo, oh here we are.

As you can see on the side here, you will be able to play simultaneously on PC and XBOX 360s?

It's the first game called panorama that allows you to play on pc and xbox as well.

There is a player besides me playing on keyboard while I am playing on the pad, and we will now be able to determine if console gamers or PC gamers are the best.

But that doesn't stop you to play with a pad on PC right?

Of course, you can obviously use the PAD on the PC, obviously.

And just now a friend just revived me.

If the person who revived me dies, I will die just after.

So it is in my best interest to help that person survive.

This brings enormous interest in gameplay, and forces us to really play tactically.

As to revive people, you can create a tree which will give life, to people close by. Of course you will need to create these at strategic places.

Can enemies also profit from this tree?

Yes it gives health to everyone.

I don't know where they are

So it is pretty fast.

As for the maps, do we have an idea of how many maps available for the game?

Today we have about 10.

Obviously there will be more, that is the goal of the game.

Each map, well we know the importance of maps in a game, and they have to be well made to not give any advantage to either team. It needs sniping points, places to hide.

What is interesting is that since we are in a mode (I'm going to die - oh I just barely escaped) where you can cross walls, you have to completly rethink the level design of the game because many things that could not happen before, like hiding behind a door in counterstike and waiting for people to come in, now since people can go trough walls, we have to think differently. For level desing it is a new way of thinking different from counterstrike.

As you just saw we were all playing together, they are trying to steal our artifact up there, we took it back.

And other than the multiplayer mode, what does shadowrun offer?

Shadowrun is a multiplayer game, there are maps. If you don't have any friends, you can always play with bots.

The A.I is relatively good, I could not tell the difference between real and A.I. when I was playing earlier.

But the real interest of this kind of game is when you can communicate with your friends and play.

So playing on live and or with a link is the best?

Yes that is the goal of the game.

So we can imagine in the France LAN games that some gamers bring their PCs, others their 360s?

Yes exactly.

One of the other goals of the game is to remove the barrier between games. Stop this PCs on one side and consoles on the other. So that all these nice people can fight themselves in the same game, that is the idea of panorama.

Ok, thanks for this presentation!

Hope you enjoyed it!

So I guess the most scored players are playing the PC version :)

Is this transfer going incredibly slow for anyone else? I've tried two download servers and I can't get more than ~15 kb/s...
Commented on 2006-09-29 18:58:53
Yeah you have to try different download servers, the first one is fast, the others are stuck at 20 kbs.

Thanx for the vid., it was awesome, glad to hear they'll put bots in it.

Sounds like a pot noodle advertisement.

Very impressive presentation, I'm stoked for multiplayer in games now. Seems really tactical and open-ended. Thanks SnakeX a lot for this. And thanks for the subtitles. Awesome!

I liked what i saw. It's shaping up to be an interesting FPS game, although the poor guy playing wasn't having much luck. I think he only killed one person during the whole time.
Commented on 2006-10-02 01:26:58
Wait a sec, this is actually looking...good? Man this game looked like it was going to be a complete trash fest only a few months ago, but now that I know more about what they are doing I can look past the decidedly average graphics and think a little more about the gameplay.
Commented on 2006-10-02 15:37:04
Looking good.
