DeltaForce Angel Falls

-----My Squad leader Rogue*CS ended up calling nova after the mods went crazy in the novaworld forums (they picked up on the 5th ring) He asked them about DF: Angel Falls - here is the result of his conversation: ----

After the commotion on Novaworld and the way Moderators were banning players, locking our posts, and going as far as deleting our posts as soon as we made them, I sort of had a spell of paranoia. My second in command was suspended for posting info about pinger, and 6 hours later there was a sticky post warning people not to share that info in Nova and he and one other was banned, but later today I know IcIshoot had his account reinstated.

The moderator was, shall I say, perturbed and at the point of sounding angry when he answered the phone (which was picked up after the 5th ring..lol) when I called them today.

He started by making his case known, and after talking to him a bit in my, "hey bro, I'm your friend not your enemy" tone, I slid right on in to the subject of the new game coming out.

Delta Force Angel Falls.

>Angel Falls is being built on a completely new game engine, as I am told.
>The graphics and playability are, in his words, comparable to Crisis.
>Angel Falls is going to be launched on at least 3 platforms.
>Angel Falls is "Delta Force" and will be in the same spirit of BHD, and not a copycat version of JO, JOE or DFX.
>Map making will still exist, but it will be mostly Nile based while preserving the MEDS we use now. Nova has a MED that allows them "to change terrains on the fly", which is nothing like we have seen yet, also the terrains are, as I understood it, editable, he (Nova Mod) was explaining to me that he was building a cave into the side of a mountian styled after the flat plateau mountinas in Mexico.
>There will be drivable and flyable vehicles.

Delta Force Cuba

>The PS3 and XBOX format of Angel Falls
>No other info was given.

Time frame for release.

Christmas

>Demo will be available possibly 6 months prior to the release.

Delta Force Operation Acid Gambit

>Never made it out of preproduction, was presented to the market researchers and it "flopped".

The more I know the more I will share, if you have any info to add or hear of anything please let me know.

Great info man.

6 motnhs prior to release? So that means we expect a demo in July or so?

Good to hear they still have the MED. I was thinking they were gonna switch over to NILE completely...

What I'm wondering about is though what the minimum system requirements are...

Good job Rogue. Thanks IcI for the news post.

nice if its true, seems a bit weird they'd just tell this information.

Sucks balls about the no public games thing too.

well the fact that you are going to be able to adjust terrain implies to me that the editor is going to be updated.

They are saying it is nile-based, which means they will either have to update nile, or come out with a complete new map editor to enabled the editing of terrains, yet still is based on nile.

Doesn`t matter if they fire the guy that makes it. If he did it on company time it is company property, meaning they have the source code.

+ it was probably developed by more than one person.

Yep, agree with atholon.

It was highly likely more than one person developed it, plus it's company property.

Where did you hear that anyway William? Just curious, to be honest.

from novalogic, inc first hand they let go a lot people and the one person who know the ins and out that was handling Nile was let go on a bad note. 2 or 3 years all go

but hey chrispy you can call the CEO of Novalogic Inc and ask the big man as will too.

i call him and ask about copy right for a new Screen saver ok on was thinking of doing another one, at this time i ask will there be any new update for Nile and his asker was no we let go of the man who was working on it.

no reason other it was on a bad note

but hey a tech support people have brains too, so why not another take up the trash as will, really no brainer unless they are totally clueless on the coding for Nile.

NILE was just a beta anyway - I think so. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Screw NILE - MED all the way. Well, they could have implemented a 3D view into MED, but I'm sure they probably couldn't due to several reasons (probably related to coding and all). However, that's just an assumption. I'm sure they thought of implementing a 3D view into a MED. Hmm...

i gotta say that that is not really a good thing in my eyes...

1. i really dont rate crysis that highly especially in terms of playablility. i bought the game and have played it on 2 occasions, waste of money.

2. graphically it is good... if you play on very high settings... if you have a tri/quad sli, or crossfire-x system. 1% of PC users?

going offtopic... the Crytek CEO has been complaining that piracy has ruined Crysis, and sales have been lower than expected. do you think maybe... just maybe that crysis was not as good as they hyped it up to be? why do they assume sales would be so much higher if piracy never existed???

as a result they have stopped all PC exclusives. riiiiiight as if noone copies/downloads console games!
