Devs from Crysis, Saints Row, & More Team Up for Starfighter Inc.
Impeller Studios announced their first ever title at PAX East this weekend, Starfighter Inc. The game is a hardcore space combat simulator that is set 200 years in the future, featuring VR support and PvP combat.
While this Impeller’s first swing at a title, their team is built of an all-star cast. The developers have worked on games like Crysis, Far Cry, Saints Row, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, and more. The most intriguing of these accolades is the work on Star Wars’ X-Wing Series of space combat simulators.
Needless to say, they know what they’re doing. Lead Designer David Wessman had this to say about their collective experience:
We’ve shown that we know how to create an intense and immersive combat experience. But we’re also passionate fans of the genre. We wanted to do something different with Starfighter Inc that makes it even more compelling. We want it to feel like the real deal – to make realistic space combat fun and believable. A cockpit sim utilizing both VR and PC is the perfect fit for our vision.
For now, there is no release date set for the title, but Impeller has been allowing full demos this past weekend at PAX East, so it looks like it may be soon. To keep up to date with the title, make sure to head over to Impeller’s website and check out some pre-alpha footage of the game below:
