E3 09: Champions Online Eyes-On

June 6th, 2009 by Zach Potts

The last thing on my E3 agenda was to have a little sit down with Bill Roper, Design Director of Cryptic Studio's upcoming game, Champions Online. He invited us special people to have a nice lunch at the Palm Restaurant while someone demoed the game and he took us through the fundamentals.

If you're unfamiliar with the brand, it goes way back to the pencil game created in 1981, and it takes a lot from it. For instance, customization is a HUGE part of the game, both then and now. What he and the developers wanted to do was to allow gamers to create their very own, unique heroes. For instance, in World of Warcraft, there are a few classes and then some armor you can put on. However, when you get to the highest level, everyone looks the same because they're wearing the best armor, etc. However, with Champions Online, you can create your own unique look, and keep it that way throughout the game, while still upgrading weapons and things of that nature.

Another thing that allows you to build the exact character you want, is the fact that there are no classes and no restrictions on which powersets you can use. For instance, if you want to create this badass fire character, but then later decide you want to throw in some ice or lightning attacks or something, then you can. There are 18 of these powersets, so as far as moves go, it is fairly extensive.

E3 09: The Saboteur Eyes-On

June 6th, 2009 by Zach Potts

Another game shown behind closed doors was The Saboteur from EA and Pandemic. This game is set in the 1930's, in a Nazi-occupied France. You play as this race-car driving man bent on ridding your country of the Nazis. The story is very lightly based on the Bugatti racing team. Anyways, you become an agent for this underground group and you will slowly rid the Nazis of several areas around the country. The entire world is open and it's all streaming, so there are no loading screens or separate levels or anything like that.

Because it's open world, like GTA, you can do whatever you want whenever you want, but there are missions to guide you along. Another way to know where you should go, is this feature called “Will to Fight”. With this, areas you have freed from the Nazis are presented in full color, while those that you have not are in black and white, with certain colors highlighted, like the Nazis red armbands, making for a very distinct vibe.
