Ensign’s Log, Stardate 63048.5: This week was the Develop Conference in Brighton and quite a bit of interesting news was announced for MMOs across the galaxy, but that was already covered on the main page.
Therefore, to make things more compact, the rest of the news has been complied into one entry.
Read on past the fold for more regarding Star Trek Online and ship customization, WoW getting its very own App, Champions Online getting the microtransaction treatment, and loads more.
Time to sign off. Spock, Kirk and McCoy have asked me to beam down to this strange planet with them, and they hate to be kept waiting.

Whoops. NetDevil’s delayed Jumpgate Evolution, offering no new time-scale for the MMO’s release.
“Jumpgate Evolution is nearly feature complete, but since entering the Friends & Family phase of testing we’ve been able to bring new eyes onto the game and get solid, crucial feedback from actual players and fans,” said a rep in this forum post.
“Based on these results, it is clear that the product needs more time to meet its objectives.”
Space will have to wait, clearly. Full thing through the link. Thanks, Massively.

Not much this week for MMOs, sorry to say. Most are just giving players an “extra experience weekend” to lull them into playing on the PC instead of being outside grilling burgers and getting bent on beer.
Well, if you are an American that is expected of you this weekend. Most of us just do that anyway.
However, despite all that, we have dug through the mire once more to bring you something in the way of MMO news that didn’t hit the front page.
It’s all after the break, if you like.

There are two videos after the break of associate product manager Tim Hodges demoing the NetDevil’s space-based MMO, Jumpgate Evolutiuon, at E3.
The footage shows the first real look at the title being played, and fluid combat is the name of the game. Hodges says in the second movie that Jumpgate’s playable with a joystick, which should give you some idea of how “immediate” control is.

GamersHell has a trailer for Jumpgate Revolution, the space-based MMO from Codemasters Online and Netdevil.
The trailer is little more than a teaser, but with the backdrop being outer space it should have many peoples’ interest piqued. There’s an article along with the trailer, discussing a few of the game’s features.
It’s out later this year.

Codemasters MMO Jumpgate: Evolution will be released in the back end of this year, developer NetDevil has confirmed.
“We are planning on launching in the second half of 2008,” lead producer Hermann Peterscheck told VG247. “It’s really exciting to announce our partnership with Codemasters Online. They are already running some of the biggest MMO’s and have extensive experience – there’s only a handful of companies out there with their kind of breadth and depth of experience.”
The space-based game was recently picked up by Codemasters, and will be shown playable for the first time at Connect 2008 in Birmingham, UK, next month. NetDevil is an experienced MMO developer, having previously created the NCSoft-published Auto Assault. The move to Codemasters for Jumpgate appears to have been a good one for the outfit.
“There was also an instant chemistry between the way we are working on Jumpgate and the people at Codemasters Online,” said Peterscheck. “They are very responsive to our goals as a developer, which are in line with their goals as well – and in fact we have learned a lot from their experience – so it’s a great mutually beneficial relationship.”

In this chat with gamers on Jumpgate: Evolution, the space-based MMO newly confirmed to publication by COG, developer NetDevil has distiguished the game from CCP’s much-loved title EVE Online by saying its combat and spaceship control will be more fluid.
“Well obviously EVE is a point and click flight scenario and we’ll have free flight combat,” said a spokesperson. “That’s a large difference. Our space will contain both PVP and PVE models but we’re really not ready to release those details yet. I can say, that it will be fun.”
The game will be playable at Connect 2008 and will release for PC this year. Thanks, Blue.
