I really do not know how to approach this topic because I know that secrecy is important not only because of other fan made games in development but the of other titles like Champions and DC online who could be watching as well. With that in mind here goes, with some updates here and there I am getting really good vision of what the world setting is. However I find myself suddenly brought back to reality after a few days and then confronted with the minor details like "origins" or motivation or why are things happening.
Example I read somewhere(not sure if was this game) that there was no "event" that started the universe. Now this troubled me because I am a big fan of mutants(thus the name) since I picked up my first X-Men comic 25 years ago. I question how things got started, and how people get powers in this universe. Is it the whole DC thing with a dormant meta-gene that everyone has and waits til something activates it? I mean could a Luthor like villain come up to you and hits you with chemicals and bee sting you gain super strength? Is this the only way to be come super powered? I would really like to see mutants in the game with a real back story with them that how they came into being and do they have the problems (unlike the mutants in City of Heroes have) with society.
Will there be aliens since there is a saucer in town? And is it a real UFO or a prop? Will we see invasions? nuff said on them.
With Anthem, who is she? Why is she the flagship hero? How did she get her powers, what are your powers? And why should we rally behind her? Is she the classic SS/Invul who flies? Is she like Captain Marvel(Carol Danvers) or a Wonder Woman type hero?
Like I said I really do not know how to properly ask for information on a game that is not in beta yet, and I do respect that you need to keep things on the D.L. But if you could give a little more info on "origins" if there is any. And the other minor stuff would be great. Just want to keep the excitement longer than a few days.
All 4 Mutants.
Evolution is key. And mutants are key.
