Default Re: Vanguard coming to PS3?!?!

They've confirmed that flying mounts are to be in at launch.

Of course...you'll probably need to be near max lvl before you can get one and they'll likely be very very expensive...but oh my god. Flying mounts. And they won't be on rails, ala EQ2 and WoW griff's. You'll have total control. Imagine you and your whole guild on flying mounts. That is some serious mobilisation right there. I haven't even begun to think of the pvp opportunities.

EDIT
More thoughts...Brad has talked before about mounted combat (mounted as in horses). He said they are planning it but it won't make release because he wanted it done properly. I wonder if this would extend to arial combat. Whole guilds clashing in the air. Dog fights. That's mind blowing.

nrdstrm, thanks for the info. Hope you get that vid sorted, if not, any more info is welcomed!

I seriously think you are making "flying mounts" bigger than it really is. It will just be basically a mount just like a horse, only it "flys". By "fly" I mean it probably wont go up or down, just levitate a little bit. It will probably have the same exact capabilities of a horse, just a different graphic. Still cool though

I could have sworn I read somewhere they meant "proper" flying. But I think you're right Tygerwoody.

Quote:
The Vanguard game engine is being designed to allow for flying (some screenshots and last year's E3 in-game movie show this, and some of you who have had the game demo'd to you have probably seen us use GM powers and then fly high up into the air -- having a true seamless world really helps with this too, btw). Mobs already fly and can path through the air as well as on land and under water.

That said, fully supporting true flying involves a lot of planing and additional functionality and so it's unlikely we'll support true flying (as opposed to levitation, which has been in many games, back to EQ 1 and before that) at launch. Hopefully in an expansion we can really explore additional modes of travel like this. Also, griffon rides that are on tracks like WoW and EQ 2 have wouldn't be hard to implement.

Anyway, just want to be up front about this and manage expectations. Were we to have, for example, fly carpets, they would levitate, not truly fly.
Oh well. It was a cool thought. Maybe in an expansion.

Well the flying mount they were showing off at E3 looked pretty cool. Hopefully that makes it in with full flying. I was actualy sitting at the vanguard booth for a good while yesterday. I must admit I'm actualy getting excited about the game now as opposed to not wanting anything to do with it prior.

Crazy..I was there quite a bit yesterday as well (both the SOE booth (out front and inside) and the Sigil Booth. Not sure if you saw me, but I had a Laker Jersey on and was filming with a tripod and sometimes had a mic out...
