Unlockng ships

Post by NUMBERZero » 15 Jul 2015, 08:45

Simple question, say for the number of ships that have been presented in the concept art, how will they be unlocked? Will it be similar to Descent 3 where you play through the campaign to get the Phoenix and then the Magnum, or is it something different?

No unlocking of any ships is planned currently... where did you get the idea from?

If the MP Demo is to have more than one ship/skin etc. it might be cool to get access to the extra content selections after a certain amount of matches or wins, according to player stats aye?

I wouldn't be surprised if NUMBERZero got the impression of multiple ships from this post a while back in the new media thread:

Cheers!

To tell the truth, I've only just realized myself that Seb listed the others as discarded concepts. Luckily for me the Eclipse is my favorite of the bunch :D

I like the Eclipse, but also the Umbra. That one is very sexy. <3

If it were voted on, in sequence of coolness
vs armaments, I think I'd have to go with:
Eclipse 8-)
Talon :D
Umbra :P
Shark :)
Solstice ;)

the umbra looks way to sinister for a player ship ive always though it would work as a boss though.
Another thought about the solstice and shark could be a bossfight for instance if they are joined back to back in the beginning of the fight and acted similar to the red fatty from d2 but double sided then halfway through the fight they split and now your fighting 2 enemies at once.
For the player ship it's gotta be the eclipse the talon seems to fragile to be flying through caves and mines whereas the eclipse is far more compact.

I'm still not a fan of the whiteness of the Eclipse. Just needs a paintjob and it'd be purrrrfect for me.
