Divergence: Added To List, First 5 Screens

DanaDana Halifax, NSPosts: 2,415Member
Today, we were happy to add Divergence to our game list. This sci-fi MMORPG makes a lot of bold promises and uses the Big World engine to great effect. Here are the first five screenshots from the game.

You can let us know what you think on their hype meter.

    And the first text we read from the game reads, "Up yours Brians!!1"

    At any rate, the screens look great. And it's sci-fi. But Devs have made me become very bitter over the years. I'll keep an eye on it...just like everything else.



    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,

    Kind of hard to hype something when there is 0 information about it on their own website.

    Let them post something about what it is they are trying to accomplish, and how.  Not the usual garbage about how they're going to "listen to the players".

    Once they have something real, then we can rate it.

    Have you bethered reading the stuff in their game info section? It is most definetly not 0 Information.

    I like some of the initial ideas on creating new species/varients through disease and genetics, I hope that makes it in. Still reading most of the race data.

    Just read the flaws section and got this:


    Your character can have Tourette's syndrome, which randomly places an
    offensive slur or two in your aloud sentences, and in turn gain the
    ability to pole-dance like it’s going out of style.

    If they keep to their proposed ideas I can definetly see myself subscribing (just need something to fill the years inbetween.

    Nope, I missed it.   But I did look....honest -)

    I"ll go back and check it out now.

    Ok, now that I've read it...I liked the races, got the the open PVP part, and didn't bother going any farther.  Just another gankfest in my mind anyway.   We have plenty of those already, just what we need, another one.

    This game *Literally* sounds too good to be true. I read their "info" page and all the races/features of housing, vehicles, social aspects of the game and what not. Just sounds like they are promising WAY to much unless the game is going to launch 2012 or something.

    With the graphical detail and the fact it is made by a small company.  I can see it being released in 2010 or later.

    Unless they have a major backer dumping tons of money into this, I doubt they could even achive good class/race/tons of other options balance.

    It sounds good and different on paper, but so did EQ2.

    Though i am hankering for a sci fi mmo that doesnt suck, while fearful that their open PvP system will turn out like EVE (you can't leave the newbie zone, sorry!)

    Is this the sequal to the highly anticipated Dawn mmorpg ?

    whoa looks like the new cry engine 2. be awesome if that was real time.

  • MrbloodworthMrbloodworth Newport News, VAPosts: 5,615Member

    Thoes screens are from vue 5 infinite

    Not "Phoshoped" they are not in engine screens, they are pre-renderd.

    But, they are using them as Concept art. MMORPG.com staff have them as "Screen shots".

    I always wondered. As long as these aren't in-game shots, why not make them more interesting, like a guy getting his skull smashed in by a flying monkey or something, just an example.

    I would buy that game in a heartbeat!

    As for this title... it looks promising on the verge of over-extending itself.  I'd like to see more from the character creation side, since I doubt they'll have a real home world of "Margaritaville".

    i agree i think some heavy gore and hard profanity and just twisted sick storylines are missing in most mmo's, If there was an mmo that was 18+ that had stuff like you rip there stomache open and comit sebuku on them and there intestines just slurmed out thyere guts and blood sprayed all over , i would give it a try.

    Dark & Light
    Dark and Light (DnL) used the BigWorld server technology to create ‘The largest MMOG you have ever seen’. DnL’s world is approximately 40,000 km² with several kingdoms and the Dark and Light factions fighting for supremacy in this magical realm.

    I think it is better for the Quality of MMORPGs Not to post screenshots from Games that are just in the imagination of their creators and they use engines that failed in the past...

    The engine didn't fail, the morons trying to use it failed.

    I was going to say "wow" but those aren't screenshots. I don't really care about prerendered concept art.

  • BruesonBrueson 19 Colorado Rd, FLPosts: 6Member
    The are trying to bring something new to the MMO world.  Something we have all been asking in one way shape or form.  The more we talk about it and give them feed back.  The better the game will be.  If we talk about it enough and things start going in the right direction from the beinging then there is a better chance they will get the financial backing they need to live up to our expectations.  So spread the word, and slap your friends when they make retarded posts that don't better the game.

    Sorry, that's not how it works. They shouldn't even be here,honestly. They have no game in development. They have IDEAS, RENDERED ART that isn't even theirs, a couple of drawings any of us could do, and they don't even have capital yet to buy one of the engines they are supposedly choosing between. It is not our job as gamers to help them raise financial backing. If they have something worthwhile, they should be able to get it on their own. It is not up to us to build hype for a game that HASN"T EVEN BEGUN DEVELOPMENT, it is up to them to begin development and then come here when they can show something that is their own making. You don't wanna hear "retarded" post that don't better the game? Then stay the hell away until they have a game to better.::::09::

    Well, the concept sounds good, then again so did the hype DnL pumped out.  I don't like the pre-rendered concept art, I can do that myself, but can't program pong.  So far it seems like this game is following in DnL footsteps, not a good sign really.  I wish them luck, but this will not make the PF top 10 list of games to watch until they have a little more solid progress and less "trust us it will be cool".

    So basically, yeah what Virtuella said.

    Yeah, sounds like Dark and Light all over again.

    And those screenshots are definitely not accurate. They've really been touched up, just like Dark and Light's screenshots were.
