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

Jumpgate: Episode 2, Attack of the Conflux™ Released Today
Episode 2 offers exciting features for both veteran Jumpgate players as well as for fans of space sims that are looking for something more than point-and-click gameplay.

LOUISVILLE, Colorado, March 18, 2002 - NetDevil Ltd., an independent developer of massively multiplayer games, today announced the release of Jumpgate: Episode 2, Attack of the Conflux™, the long-awaited expansion to its massively multiplayer space combat and trading simulation.

”Jumpgate has always been unique among massively multiplayer space games for its commitment to true space simulation and joystick space combat,” said Scott Brown, president of NetDevil. “Now it further distinguishes itself by being the only persistent universe space game to allow players to build and run their own stations in space.”
Episode 2 offers exciting features for both veteran Jumpgate players as well as for fans of space sims that are looking for something more than point-and-click gameplay. Building on Jumpgate’s core space combat and trading gameplay, Episode 2 adds:
  • Player-Owned Space Stations: Players will now have the opportunity to purchase and operate a space station, including a storage depot for ship parts, trading capabilities for commerce with allies and teams, and a spacecraft hangar allowing players to store up to 20 ships;
    A mysterious new Alien Galaxy: Players will be able to explore and invade the home sectors of the sinister Conflux;
  • A deadly array of new opponents: The Conflux are more dangerous than ever, with faster, tougher ships and improved AI swarm systems;
    Pirating and counter-pirating equipment: Pirates can capture cargo in interstellar raids, while freighter pilots can defend themselves with cargo bombs;
  • A new Sector Control System: Squads can seize control of sectors in space, setting off battles for domination with their rivals; and
  • Several new Ship Types: Powerful new Heavy Fighters and gigantic Freighters are among the new additions to the choices for TRI pilots.
    “In Jumpgate, you’re in the pilot’s seat,” said Josh Johnston, producer of Jumpgate. “And with Episode 2, the pilot’s seat is a more exciting –and dangerous— place to be.”
New players interested in experiencing the excitement and conflict of the Jumpgate universe can sign up at http://www.jossh.com to receive Episode 2 and 10 free days of gameplay for free.

We received an email from Netdevil's PR folks announcing the long awaited Internet release of the second episode of Jumpgate, their massively multiplayer space sim. The new expansion adds things like player owned space stations, a new galaxy, new opponants, new ship types and lots more. You can download the game with the expansion and play it free for 10 days.


There's a number of threads on this forum dealing with issues.
FlameWar synopsis
US storyline synopsis
US/EU release synopsis








BTW, nothing yet on Gamespot, PCmagazine, PCGamer (US), UGO (GamePen), GameInfoWire, GamePro, Gamers nor RPGamer (i'd say not 3dactionplanet, but they're a division of gamespy. since RPGplanet is too it looks like the FMs mean it's roleplaying) Nothing from PCZone (PCGamer - UK edition) either.
    you'll notice alot of press goes into the StarWarsGalaxy delay; any news is good news
FYI, there's a thread on USENET by GM_Arch0n here

PC.IGN.com has a blurb (ign sure has lots of silly subdivisions) wrote:
Conflux Finally Freaking Attack
Jesus Christ, these Conflux are a tardy bunch. At long last, they are finally attacking.

March 19, 2003 - Jumpgate was the very first preview I wrote here at IGN. I also reviewed way the hell back. After that, but still way the hell back (in April of last year), it was announced that there would be a second episode released for the MMO space-sim. That second episode was to be called Episode 2: Attack of the Conflux. It was going to be released in the summer of 2002. That didn't so much happen. But no worries, it's out now!
Attack of the Conflux, NetDevil's attempt at expanding Jumpgate for its paying subscribers, is finished and live. If you'd like to learn more, like whether or not you can even play it (for some reason I'm under the impression that this could be a Europe only thing), head on over to the official website.

Jumpgate was originally developed by NetDevil and published by the 3DO Co. NetDevil has since assumed control of the game and its servers
