About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Dark Horizons: Lore (DH:L) is a persistent player first-person action game, in a near future Earth setting where factions fight for control of North America using remotely piloted Mechanized Assault Vehicles (MAVs). The faction wars are driven by player stats as they fight for control of objective throughout North America, and these stats and player management can be viewed online and in-game. Dark Horizons: Lore is built on a distributed server model that allows players to play online for free while offering the immersive qualities of subscription-based games.

“Its very exciting to see this new paradigm for building a game materialize as the players actions direct the flow of history in the universe and we continue to add more tech and territory as faction war rages on,” comments Adrian Wright, designer of Dark Horizons: Lore. “Improving the game with inspiration and sometimes actual content from players makes Lore like a real war simulation with ever changing combatants and game play.”

Key features of updated release Dark Horizons: Lore:

  • Improved persistent player and battle stat tracking from Official Server Corp servers with new Alaskan and North Eastern beach battlefield environments.
  • Blood pumping new music, new and enhanced weapon visuals and sound effects
  • Enhanced environmental effects including more realistic water dynamics, precipitation and multilayered fog
  • User created aerial assault weapon and new rapid fire homing missile
  • Multi-player only demo and retail versions with improved staging area and enhanced user interfaces

“Once you’ve played a raging frag-fest battle you’ll be hooked,” comments Paul "Wedge" D'Elia, custom weapon contributor to DH:L. “I’m amazed this game was made by indies, the game just keeps getting better and getting to collaborate and occasionally spank the devs is over the top.”
