United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

Well it's been a busy couple of weeks for us at NetDevil. Following the North American launch of Jumpgate, we've all been working our tails off on upcoming feature upgrades. The launch of the first truly Massive Multiplayer Space Sim went off without a hitch, and Jumpgate received numerous outstanding reviews (see our Jumpgate Reviews section). Thanks to everyone who's been crowding the space lanes! (If you aren't playing Jumpgate yet, what are you waiting for?)

What's Next For Jumpgate?

Now for some news regarding the upcoming feature update release, which has reached the testing phase. We've been reading the forums and watching in game discussions, figuring out which of the features from our Big Ideas ListTM for Jumpgate would make the most sense to implement for the community. Many players have expressed a desire to bring more explorer type activities to the game. We are taking a very big step in that direction with the next patch. There will be more reasons to fly "off the beaten path", and we're not just talking about asteroids. Let's just say many people will likely start using the storage stations a lot more.


Other things to look for in the next patch include new ship classes for each faction, a reworking of gun system balancing, a new sector, and the usual dosage of new equipment, among other improvements.

2002 will be an exciting year for Jumpgate. Here are some things to look for in the coming months (in no particular order):
- Player Owned Stations and Resources
- Corvette Class Ships
- Advanced Conflux
- Cloaking
- New Life forms
- Pirating Technologies
- New "Space Weather"

Which one is first? That's for you to decide, so get in the game and tell us what you want!

WOOHOO! I can't wait to own a space station!
