A Teenage Wish Fulfilled In This Space MMO

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.

Frontier (Elite 2) let you seamlessly fly down and land - ok, the planets weren't overly detailed, and you couldn't really do anything outside a spaceport, but you could bring your ship down in the middle of one of a planet's identikit villages and watch the clock spin round as you fast forwarded time.
