In the wake of yesterday’s post I am very excited to see a Project Copernicus world fly-through video just released today (30 minutes ago)! I’ve read statements in the news today that Project Copernicus has a June 2013 release date, but I haven’t seen or heard anything official. Whatever the case may be, I’m going to take this as a sign of good news.
My thoughts on the video are simple: I love the world so much. I wrote yesterday how Reckoning is a good game, but it’s the world of Amalur that has made me a devoted fan. This video definitely reenforces my feelings. The diversity of environments, the color, and the details of Reckoning appear to be present in Project Copernicus.
I would love to hear from someone at 38 Studios about how much of the world in Copernicus will be familiar to Reckoning players. Will we go to some of same places at all or should we expect Project Copernicus to be set in a completely different region? I think this ties in to the questions I have about how much of the world was done prior to 38 Studios acquiring Big Huge Games.
Definitely check out the video, and let’s all hope this means we have a lot more to look forward to from 38 Studios!
