New high res snaps of Huxley on the PC


The shooter/MMORPG crossover Huxley continues to inch it's way towards release this year with six new screenshots detailing the game's innovative glowing breast fixtures. The female character also has a glowing target near her WebZen crotch -- is this the new tramp-stamp or what?

One note to the industry -- please put "not actual game footage" when you release pre-rendered videos. We *really* hate it when you do that. Check out the trailer (released in May 2006) below alongside these updated screens for brand new reasons to want to punch video game executives in the face.

Update: We have some specific dates from the screens and videos so you have a better idea of how the game looks and acts.  This video is indeed pre-rendered and was made for E3 2006. Straight from the horse's mouth: "It's more of a CG intro video to the game and was intended to give people a look at characters, environments and basically the feel of the world of Huxley." 

The other video is from a gameplay video that was released to the media a few months back. It's a little out of date because the screenshots linked in the article were taken from our in-game demo we showed at GStar (which is essentially a Korean E3 type conference in November).  Those screenshots are using the latest updates to the Unreal 3 engine and are indicative of the current look of the game.

Anyhow, back to reality. This is all made possible by the marvel of the Unreal 3 engine, a licensed technology which makes it possible for studios to quickly create games that look vastly inferior to Gears of War. Granted, this is a completely different kind of game which will allow much more players to interact within a larger, broader environment so it can't look that good (We've since forgiven them for that pre-rendered fish tale of an E3 trailer. Maybe.). These new images are previews of the PC version but a similar Xbox 360 version is also in the works this year.

Personally, I can't wait to run around in a metal kilt. Praise Scotland, 2069. When you're done laughing at how much the game doesn't resemble the video below, check out the actual gameplay video -- which is actually quite good, however ten years behind the one shown below.
