February 5th, 2009

BOISE, ID, February 5th, 2009 - StarWraith 3D Games LLC today released Evochron Legends, the sequel to its original freeform 3D space combat and mercenary simulator.

Evochron Legends is a freeform mercenary space-sim that focuses on 'lone-wolf' survival gameplay. Players advance in the game in a variety of ways and can complete many activities including objectives like spying, racing, escorting, transporting, mining, exploring, hiring crew members, ship-to-ship trading, and clearing paths through asteroid fields. Evochron Legends is a technical simulation, not a character based simulator, so players are not limited by pre-selected character roles, skills, or attributes. The player's decisions and actions define their role in the game and establish their reputations, wealth, progress, and ranking. The game also rewards players who devise their own gameplay strategies and 'think outside the box'. With diverse optional objectives and many paths to choose from, including a seamlessly integrated objective based story quest, Evochron Legends offers an amazing level of freeform gameplay.

All travel and activities in the game take place in a vast seamless universe without system 'walls' or 'rooms' that require a warp gate 'door' to access. There are no required warp gates or trade lanes to restrict travel and hold players back. A player can travel anywhere with or without jump drives and gates, as long as they have the fuel and time to get there. The seamless environment also lets players descend into planet atmospheres to land at city trade stations, mine valuable materials, or explore for hidden items while occasionally contending with weather effects like rain, snow, lightning, and wind turbulence. Players are free to fly where they want, when they want, with open space navigation and onboard jump drives. The game's environment interaction also goes far beyond the genre's typical 'background wallpaper'. Nebula clouds, asteroid fields, atmospheres, stars, moons, caves, and planet rings all provide unique options for shelter and strategy. The game simulates changes for various environments that include gravity, fuel consumption, physics, sensor range, and visibility.

Evochron Legends features unified gameplay profiles, allowing players to keep the upgrades, ships, equipment, money, and commodities they earn to use in both single player and multiplayer (including connecting to different multiplayer sessions). Players can also save virtually anywhere without docking requirements.

The component based shipyard gives players the ability to customize the appearance and capabilities of their ship. They can optimize their design for defense, exploration, combat, racing, or transporting. They can also further enhance their ship by hiring specialized crew members, upgrades, and equipment.

The realistic zero gravity inertia based 'Newtonian' style flight model includes complete freedom of movement (3-way rotation and 3-way direction control) with optional variable input. An advanced inertial dampening system helps keep flight control simple in space, atmospheres, and gravity fields.

The game includes support for NaturalPoint® Inc.'s TrackIR™ head tracking system. A PC with TrackIR connected knows exactly where the player is sitting and looking, by capturing their head motion with all six degrees of freedom. Evochron Legends uses TrackIR’s unique input to control the view from the pilot's cockpit perspective, independent of keyboard, mouse, or joystick inputs.

Evochron Legends continues the SW3DG tradition of feedback based development. Players are encouraged to become involved in the updates to the game as their requests and suggestions will help guide future updates. Players are also invited to become part of the forum to share custom modifications, exchange tips, and to stay informed of updates.

Evochron Legends runs on the Windows® PC platform, including Windows XP, and Vista. The recommended minimum system configuration for the game includes a 2.0 GHz processor, 128 MB 3D video card, and 1 GB of RAM (1.5 GB for Vista). The game supports keyboard, mouse, joystick, and gamepad control options with remapping capability. To learn more about Evochron Legends, please visit the official website at www.evochron.com
