off the ground for some time now. This week the developer made a surprise announcement with the reveal of Stargate Resistance
, a all new multiplayer-oriented third person shooter based on the TV series universe that's set for release in the first quarter of 2010.
The game's official web site has more info and the first screenshots from the game along with a message from Cheyenne Mountain's Chris Klug explaining the premise. Stargate Resistance
will feature battles between the humans of Stargate Command against the System Lords. The game will have six player classes, an assortment of weapons, gameplay modes like Team Deathmatch, Capture the Tech and Domination and more. There will also be a strategic element to the game as teams will try to win control over planets via matches.
Klug also talked about their issues with the MMO Stargate Worlds
, saying, "We chose to remain quiet during those times, because, honestly, we often didn't know what our future was day-to-day, sometimes even hour-to-hour. As a group we chose to not say anything until we knew something." He added that while Stargate Resistance
is being made, "we continue to work towards SGW's release."
