Icon17 Futuremark Announces First Game: Shattered Horizon

oday revealed Shattered Horizon(tm), a new game where players fight to survive in the aftermath of a catastrophic Moon mining accident that throws billions of tons of rocky debris into near-Earth space. In this multiplayer first-person shooter for PC teams of players experience realistic zero gravity combat surrounded by the broken remains of orbital infrastructure and the millions of asteroids now encircling the Earth.

With simple and intuitive controls players have complete freedom of movement, making full use of the distinctive environment to control the battle. Shattered Horizon rewards players with gameplay and tactics impossible in games constrained by gravity.

Full PR: http://www.yougamers.com/forward?htt...ses%2F53949%2F
So, the game is a multiplayer FPS with a twist, and everything is obviously going to be presented with some very shiny visuals. In order to illustrate the story and the setting, we got some breaking news - the official teaser trailer for Shattered Horizon.

Sounds like the (2002) The Time Machine movie again.

The team confirmed that Shattered Horizon is currently being developed for Windows and DX10 only. Console versions are currently not under development. The game engine is a native DX10 engine, greatly evolved from the technology developed for 3DMark Vantage. Futuremark Games Studio is also using PhysX (with support for GPU-assisted physics) to spice things up. No word yet what the minimum requirements will be, beyond the fact that you'll need DX10 hardware. Jussi Markkanen, the Lead Programmer of Shattered Horizon, stressed that this is a game and not a benchmark, and while benchmarks are designed to torture hardware to the limit, games are designed to run smoothly and be playable. The stated goal is to get impressive visuals from a wide range of systems.

their game is limited to 25% PC only market. Not ideal at all.

Suspect the percentage of Vista users will continue to climb significantly before this game launches in late 2009 or most likely 2010/2011.

Nehalem with 6 RAM slots should help see to that as well.

Bloomfield is high end, much lower than 20%; those who go Nehalem this year, early next year, already have funds for Vista... won't help Vista much in the total picture

As I said, game won't launch until 2010 or 2011 I suspect... Vista will be old and Windows 7 will have already launched or even be a year old. Percentage of XP users will be much smaller by that time in comparison.
