Today ngmoco released two new videos on their upcoming four player online deathmatch game, Eliminate. Like all ngmoco releases, Eliminate is shrouded in secrecy and little bits of information are slowly being unveiled as the game gets closer to its impending release. Regardless, these two videos have quite a few interesting details in them and are much more meaty than your average ngmoco teaser. Both are worth a look if you're at all interested in Eliminate.
The first video released is a short trailer in the same style of the previous Eliminate trailers that exhibit the various technologies offered by Arsenal Megacorp, your employer in the game:
The second video clip is from the latest episode of the ngmoshow where producer Chris Plummer walks us through the upgrade system and the various weapon and armor available for purchase in-game:
The in-game energy and credit system has been a highly controversial topic on our forums since they were both revealed. Something to consider though, per our WWDC coverage of the game, Eliminate will have an in-depth performance tracking system to match players up with other players of similar skill.
If this system works as intended, there will likely never be situations where you are in game getting stomped by players who have been able to purchase much better equipment than you. Those players will have ranked up enough that they will be fighting with players of similar skill and gear levels, leaving newer and lesser equipped players to compete on a more even playing field.
Details are still sketchy on most of the features of Eliminate, but in the meantime feel free to follow the official thread on our forums.
