'New World Order' - Map Building Tools & Demo

by Thomas on Nov. 12, 2002 @ 7:19 p.m. PST | Filed under News

NWOmapping asked Jimbo from Termite Games a few questions wether there will be any demo and/or map building tools for the soon to be released game, New World Order. Here is the full clip:

We're discussing the demo, but I cannot say when right now - just that it's on our minds.

The NWO betas where resource hogs when more than 7-8 players joined, because animation code and many other things were still in Beta and were running slow - that in combination with network bugs screwed things up. These things have been fixed now.

The map building info and tools will be released as a separate download after the game has shown up in stores. It's going to be very interesting to see what people can do with our tools - it's not as easy to build for NWO as for a game with a complete editor, it's more to-the-metal with NWO. That will however give the really dedicated and talented a chance to show what they can do.

We're also very much dedicated to jumping straight on any problems that show up, and if there are no problems we're still going to release upgrades to improve and tweak NWO to a monster. /Jimbo
