Sword of the Stars II Engine Trailer

A new trailer shows off the engine in Sword of the Stars II, the 4X strategy sequel currently in development at Kerberos Productions. Here's word on the trailer: "Boasting an all new graphics engine and incorporating new ship details that allow for new fleet strategies and tactics, Sword of the Stars 2 is poised to revive the 4X space genre and is scheduled for a 2011 release."

I watched this in YouTube's HD version and I am not terribly excited about it.

The textures look muddy and a bit low rez. N:TJI, while an older game, had much crisper textures on the ships themselves.

Also, when the camera pans around the nameplate on the SFS Minks, the ship name alternately is flat on the hull and then pops off of it to float above it. If that's a feature, it's not well done.

Space is vast and gorgeous and any game set in space that centers around starships needs to reflect that. I agree with the poster a few comments above that no one has yet to capture that like Homeworld and N:TJI did.

Shame, really, given that the 4x formula of build, research, build and kill has pretty much been perfected.
