Arena Behind the Scenes
Game Trailers is the video-game-movie-clearinghouse-site that keeps on giving: they've just posted a new video interview with Wing Commander Arena Producer Sean Penney! It's in a crisp high-resolution format and lets us have a look at just how detailed the 'Freelancer'-style camera can be -- the tiny Confed symbols on Broadswords' wings are a sight for sore eyes.
A video conversation with producer/lead designer Sean Penney! This seems tailor made for people who are worried that Arena won't live up to the series legacy. Quotes include: "Everyone loves Wing Commander, I certainly do. And we were excited about the thought of putting the Wing Commander IP with a 16 player action space shooter." and "It's an arcade game, so you want people to be able to just pick up and play it. But it is a Wing Commander title - it is a space combat game, so you want to add some depth to it. So it's pick up and play, but there's layers of depth to it."
