Jumpgate moves away from EVE’s point and click

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 1 February 2008 08:09 GMT


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.
