Welcome to the 2nd Developer Blog For Elysian Fields
First Off Let Me Welcome three new members of our team, grahamleroux, rohin and BaRaDa they are joining us in the Modeling Area and we are looking forward to showing you what they create, i would also extend the welcome to esreveR as a Voice Actor.
For this Blog i wanted to explain some things on our Timeline of the game, We are set in the year 2549 this is Three years before the fall of reach which was in the year 2552, it is a possibility that we could include the fall in Elysian Fields but for now 2549 is our starting Year, this wont be changing as its locked down with the campaign design which i am working on, i will talk a little more on this later in the blog but questions on the campaign aside from small ideas i wont be answering it will be some time before i flesh it out fully it is something i have been working on for a long time back when i first joined HaloRTS
What is happening right now with our team is the start of Model Development and Working out tech trees for the nations in this case the UNSC and Covenant this regards Structures, Units and Powers (Air Strike For Example), this will not be reveled to the public until we have locked it down, but this does bring up something that we started to talk about in house, while the campaign is Locked to Human-Covenant War Units we can have leeway with Multiplayer items and also use some Post-War Units such as the M510 Siegework/Ultra-Heavy Mobile Anti-Aircraft Weapons Platform (Mammoth) from Halo 4, We are asking what you think early because its much easier to work this out near the start of Development then later on when you already have things modeled, Please Vote in Our Poll on the forums, this can be found Here
You Will be Required to Sign up to the forums to vote but this does not take long and allows you to also post suggestions and ideas we can look at and use
Elysian Fields will include a Campaign this may or may not come with the first Build that is not a Beta or Alpha Version, on the ModDB/IndieDB page you can see a small snip of the Campaign Document you can also see this on the About Page on our Website and you can also find a small amount of Information about some Characters on the UNSC under the Factions Menu on the Website.
he story of Elysian Fields is set during the Human-Covenant War in the year 2549 on the planet of Aegean.
This is Three years before the fall of reach in the year 2552
You Will play as Commander M. Solaas, under the command of General Gerard Oldmen and Vice Admiral Samuel K. Bridges from the Valiant-class super-heavy cruiser Rome in Winter, Tasked with the Defense of the Planet from Covenant Forces
Your Character Commander M. Solaas does not have there first name set, we did this for a reason, its up to you if you are male or female we wont be deciding that for you, The Player will not have any Speaking role (No Voice Acting for them)
That's All For Now
