‘Stargate Worlds’ developer shows some class

Gaming PC RPGs Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Not long after announcing a lull in updates until funding could be worked out, the company behind the online roleplaying game Stargate Worlds has updated its website to thank fans for their patience and reward them with a slew of new images from the project.

From Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, via the MMO news site Massively:

Stargate Worlds character class

First of all a HUGE thank to our loyal and very patient fan base for hanging in there with us over this long period during which we did not have a lot to report or show. It’s great to be back and we’re excited to give you some fantastic never-before-seen screenshots of armor and weapons for the Goa’uld, Jaffa, Soldier, and Scientist.

We know you expect nothing less than the AAA content in Stargate Worlds our development team is working hard to give you along with some additional exciting news we will be revealing very soon! We want to thank everyone for their continued support and passion for Stargate Worlds and we can’t wait to show you more of what we’ve been cooking up over here.

Each of these armor sets will have unique traits that make them ideal for certain situations. As players become familiar with each world and the various environments they will encounter, they will discover which sets of armor best suit their play style.

It was the first update since footage from the game appeared as a prop in the Oct. 2 premiere of the new Syfy series Stargate Universe. After that, the game’s site went offline briefly in what turned out to be a change in DNS server providers.

The company and its founder and principal owner, Gary Whiting, were recently sued by investors who claim misuse of company funds. The Mesa company was granted a license by MGM in 2006 to develop an online roleplaying game based on the Stargate film and TV series, but those efforts have repeatedly stalled as the game’s financial backing came into question.
