In a recent interview with Gamespot UK at GDC 2009, the man who needs no introduction a.k.a. Peter Molyneux seemed very excited about a new project and the technology involved with it.
Obviously he didn’t get into details but hinted we might see more soon.
In comes Andrew Lindsay, animation director at Lionhead and a Swansea Metropolitan University student’s Twitter. It gets a bit complicated but basically industry people often got o universities to make speeches and such. So it would seem that Andrew Lindsay went to SMU and talked a bit about their new project, confirming its existence and saying it would be shown at E3.
They also display some tech demo on skin quality, lighting and facial expression.
Apparently both Lionhead and Microsoft are both in “No Comment” mode but the ‘rumor’ seems legit and well E3 is getting that much more exciting!
Following the Knothole Island DLC from January, the See the Future content will be released in may for 560MS (why 560? no clue).
With this DLC you will be able to lift a curse on three items bought through Murgo the Trader and once these are freed the player will be able to have a vision of Albion’s future for those of the Heroic bloodline.
The content will also feature new characters, new monsters and new quests. Some of which includes The Ghosts of the Snowglobe and The Cursed Knight. Another feature will be the Colosseum were you will be able to compete to gain new goodies.
In addition Lionhead said that new items and emotes will be available for free for those you do not wish to buy the full DLC.
