Bringing you the latest news on The Babylon Project

Posted by on

I promised more frequent updates but I can only stress this again, it's an released game, not a game in production, which limits the amount of news considerably :-)
While my new campaign is still WIP but really coming together now, I am glad I have lots of other things to report.

The Babylon Project had multiple older releases very different from our final version and some very old campaigns, while very well made, just cannot be played using final. The most popular example is "Tales of EAS Janus", a great campaign that tells the tale of the EAS Janus (imagine that!) during the Earth-Minbari War. Efforts by TBP fans to overhaul Janus are not new but during the last month, it really developed momentum and I am confident we will be able to replay this classic in the near future.

On further note, as some new players may have noticed, the TBP DVD is not up to date anymore and considering that there will be another big update soon, we felt that it's about time to start thinking about DVD version 2.
Along with it will be the a new version of the campaign pack. In theory, version 3, although we have not decided on the confusing name issue yet.

Last but not least, we had a new campaign announcement in the forums. I already pointed out in the last news post how I feel about giving news updates on campaigns not made by me and since nobody but the creator of "Battle at ..." has any insights on it, I am going to state my happiness about new Community Content and leave it that way. Oh and I wish the author good luck of course.

May the force b--- eh, forget that.

Does Babylon 5 have a catch phrase similar to "May the force be with you" or "Live long and prosper"? I haven't watched all the way through...

Good news though :)

maybe the Ranger's creed "We live for the One, we die for the One" but it doesn't really fit. Also, I doesn't have the possibility to do another silly joke.

B5 has many good phrases around but not one that is so catchy enough to fit in this vid's news. Now, you may go "in Valen's name".
