Wing Commander. X-Wing. Elite. Privateer. Some of my favourite games of all time, yet all were missing one thing that upcoming MMO Infinity has: the ability to fly seamlessly from space to a planet's surface.

Sounds trivial, but if you've ever played a space shooter (or space trader!) you know exactly what I'm talking about; the jarring break in gameplay between space flight and a planetary location, the constant reminder that you're not flying through a space littered with physical objects you can land on, you're just...flying through a space.

I'll be honest, I'd known very little about this game until now, but between that trailer and some gorgeous art over on its site, I'll be looking into it...if it's ever actually released.
