Computer and Video Games is featuring a preview of Stargate Worlds. Editor Jon Blyth interviewed Dan Elggren, the head of Cheyenne Mountain and said:
Then it gets a little bit more surprising. "For those gamers who aren't interested in combat, we're integrating minigames in a way to provide alternative gameplay styles. We're consciously building our game to be easily accessible to non-gamers and gamers who have never picked up an MMO." Setting the target audience to 'everyone' will thrill the money men, but it's a strategy that tends to fail. But Elggren remains adamant.
"We believe our combat system is challenging and different enough to attract the hardcore gamers, but we also know that we have to build a game that is accessible to Stargate fans who may have never played an MMO before. Our minigame integration and our respect for the Stargate IP will make these gamers feel at home in the universe of their favourite sci-fi TV series." They're also in talks with the series' actors, to get them to appear as NPCs.
