The SoulKeeper is a 3rd/1st person melee combat action multiplayer game. Experience the heat of medieval-like combat, in gorgeous and detailed environments making use of the powerful Unreal Engine. Feel the thrill of hunting down your opponents on the back of a mount of your choice (including dragons and horses). The SoulKeeper will come loaded with approximately 6 different races, each one with 5 different classes (including wizards and fighters) each one with different weapons and special attributes. Every race will have its own environments, weapons, culture, all related one to the other in the ever-expanding SoulKeeper universe.

On another note, the Special Edition of "The SoulKeeper" progresses quite satisfactory, so expect a pre-release media update sometime soon.

Hey Grasn, it would be much appreciated if you could send me a scan of the magazine.

Which magazine is it? Gamestar?

Good to hear Special Edition is proceeding. I would hate to see such an awesome mod die out because of a few bugs.

Die out?
"The SoulKeeper" is a project that has been going on for 2 years. It has gone through difficult times, and now it isn't one of them.
So I think die out is a term that really is not applicable to "The SoulKeeper".

Finally got around to trying it.

It's got some amazingly good ideas, and great art direction, with some of the worst technical forthought I've seen .

Making a pretty map, that's one thing

Make a pretty map and making it run SMOOTHLY, that's something else.

As it stands, the 2gb uncompressed install doesnt seem justified, and the massive amount of lag even offline ( I shudder to think what it would be like online ) made me uninstall this prettty quickly

I can't help but get the feeling that someone high up was shouting about eye candy this and eye candy that, without knowing the limitations of U-Engine.

HL2 or another engine might have served better here...

Great job there SK devs! Like I posted on your mod's site it is a shame that you get any negative comments for such a great work. I agree that there was one huge map that was lagging to me with all the dragons and stuff, but the developers already said it was an experimental map. Other than that all the maps run great and the game is fun and original. Something different than another WW2, CS, insert_other_popular type of a game.

Eagerly waiting for the SE! : )
