Vivendi Universal Games Announces Nexus: The
Jupiter Incident Available at Retail
New Modifications Available Since Game’s European Release
LOS ANGELES, CA - (March 17, 2005) – Vivendi Universal Games today announced
that Nexus: The Jupiter Incident is now available at retailers nationwide.
Developed by Mithis Entertainment and published by HD Interactive BV, Nexus
– The Jupiter Incident is a real-time mission-based tactical space game
featuring spectacular real-time battles with breathtaking motion picture
quality. Players will focus on tactics and action as they control up to 10
battleships encountering aliens, unknown solar systems and other phenomena
in the struggle to save Earth.
Since its European release the Nexus community has produced a number of mods
with the games’ tool kit. Gamers can visit
to get an updated and complete list of available mods. The full mod kit is
provided with the game and contains the tools and documentation related to
ship modelling: a Nexus model viewer, a couple of sample models from the
game, and a doc file describing the modelling guidelines and the usage of
the model viewer.
“Nexus is the sci-fi game that captures the essence of perfection, with
outstanding graphics, sound and game play and is a true out-of-this-world
experience,” said Philip W. O’Neil, President of North America, Vivendi
Universal Games. “We are very excited that Nexus has received numerous
outstanding review scores.”
At the dawn of the 22nd century, the conquest of space and the colonization
of the solar system are being monopolized by several huge and ambitious mega
corporations. Although extremely delicate and vulnerable, equilibrium is
maintained by these companies. It has now been 60 years since the terrible
catastrophe that befell Noah’s Ark, the first colony ship of mankind.
At the very edge of the solar system the companies make a discovery which
will shift the technological advantage and upset the balance. And so a new
conflict is born: “The Jupiter Incident”. Players will step into the shoes
of Marcus Cromwell, a young but already famous captain and his legendary
spaceship Stiletto and find themselves in the middle of this conflict.
Nexus: The Jupiter Incident has been rated “T” by the ESRB and carries a
suggested retail price of $49.99. More information on the game can be found
