Board enemy ships?
« on: March 27, 2013, 02:39:58 am »
Me and some frineds were just messing around and thought: he can you board other ships then kill people with mallets?!"
So do you think this could ever become a part of the game?

No, it's actually something Muse specifically set out not to do.  There's a huge focus on cooperative play and airship-to-airship combat, including boarding would place a much heavier emphasis on individual skill and turn it into more of an FPS.

I kind of want to be able to land on enemy ships and see their crew though, just for one of those WTF moments.

I suppose you're right, but I would like mainly to see better caption controls, perhaps having a third person view of your ship and being able to see more of the enemies on the ship

Actually you CAN see the enemy on their ship, but you have to turn your graphic settings to the highest. You might notice pilots have pretty terrible visibility on the helm, I'm sure that was intentional to require communication.

We need a sticky to tell people to stop asking for boarding...

Muse has said that boarding will never be implemented in the game due to how it would change the focus of the gameplay.
