Troy : Divine Playground is a multiplayer First Person Shooter (FPS) putting the emphasis on cooperative gameplay. It is a total conversion of the famous Half-Life 2 game. The mod is the final project of seven students in software engineering at the University of Sherbrooke. Most of the core members of the team have real experience in different game companies. T:DP is all about defending and assaulting bases in a Greek setting – with an emphasis on teamwork. Players – agents of the Gods – will influence the tide of the Great Trojan War by possessing and controlling soldiers on the field. Customize your character with a unique skill system and use strategic mechanisms to dominate the battlefield! Troy: Divine Playground website

It’s been a long 3 months since the last update – the team went undercover, working hard on the mod. We showed the project to our professors and to the public last week, and I think we will have a good final score ;) Last week everyone could play Troy: Divine Playground in a small LAN at the university’s public place, and the feedback was all incredibly positive.

Here’s your update for Christmas – a 7 minutes trailer composed exclusively of video captures taken by Gus playing the mod alone. The mod is still a multiplayer mod – it is just not shown in the video. Playing it alone is surprisingly quite satisfying, even when you’re killing your own soldiers like Gus is doing in this little video.

The mod is at an advanced stage – we played (Hrm, playtested) the thing for a whole day and were still having loads of fun with it just before stopping. We got a sad announcement to make today though – T:DP will NOT be released in December, as we first said when we announced the project one year ago. The game is coded, but it needs some refinements visually and it needs to be playtested by a bigger team, so that we can tweak the gameplay accordingly.

So what will we do in the future? The core team members are all starting full-time jobs in the game industry, so that we will need to restructure the team a bit. I can’t give any release date yet, but I can assure you that we will do all we can to bring this mod to you guys as soon as we can.

Hope you like the trailer!

Awesome trailer but the AI looks a bit dumb.

the gameplay looks so fun. altho the timing in the animations is a bit off with some weapons. example- it seemed like the enemies died before the sword was even swung. just some constructive critisism so dont take it harshly.
