titre Présentation

«Millennium Four : The Right» fut le seul et unique projet développé - et jamais achevé - durant la courte existence de 5D Games, le studio formé par des ex-Papyrus (parmi lesquels Todd Farrington, Dave Konieczny et Scott Marison). C'est parce qu'ils en avaient assez d'écrire des jeux de course et parce que Sierra n'attendait que cela de leur part qu'ils sont devenus indépendants. «Millennium Four : The Right» était d'un genre complètement différent, il se situait dans la lignée de «Privateer». Durant le quatrième millénnaire, dans une galaxie lointaine, un conflit éclatait entre les colons humains, rassemblés au sein de la coopérative Centauri, et les membres d'une race baptisée Aahnk, soutenus par les rebelles de la Brook Taylor Free Space Faction. Vous ne jouiez qu'un simple marchand interstellaire, et pouviez choisir de rester neutre ou de soutenir un de ces camps, toutes vos activités pouvant avoir une influence sur le moteur économique dynamique du jeu ou sur le déroulement de l'histoire. Grâce à Direct3D, «Millennium Four : The Right» pouvait voir sa résolution graphique monter jusqu'à 1280x1024.

Description fournie par le site www.5dgames.com en 1997 :
In the fourth millennium, the Earth is dying.
In the fourth millennium, humanity has spread to the stars.
In the fourth millennium, the Aahnja (TM) have returned, to reclaim their right.

5D Games, Inc. announced today that its first title, previously code named G-Zero, will be called Millennium Four: The Right. Millennium Four: The Right takes place in the thirty-sixth century. As the Earth is dying from ecological abuse, humanity has colonized dozens of star systems spread over one hundred light years. The expansion has stopped, however, with the discovery of the Aahnja, a group of humans taken from Earth fifteen thousand years earlier by a mysterious alien race known only as Aahnk (TM). The Aahnja were bred to be Aahnk mercenaries with the promise of the rule of humanity in return. Now they have returned to claim their right.

Millennium Four: The Right is a first-person perspective, 3D space combat/action/strategy game that sets a new standard for graphics. The player starts as a neutral trader just as tensions are escalating between the human government, called the Centauri Cooperative, and the Aahnja, backed by the rebel faction known as Brooks-Taylor FreeSpace. As the player ferries cargo between space stations they meet characters that invite them into both sides of the conflict. The player can choose to help the Centauri, the Aahnja through the Brooks-Taylorites, or stay neutral. If the player stays neutral, the game's AI plays out the story, providing a dynamic backdrop for their trading activities. The game's economic model allows prices to fluctuate based on current economic and political conditions.

Supporting both 5D Games' proprietary 3D graphics engine, as well as Microsoft's Direct3D hardware acceleration standard, Millennium Four: The Right offers stunning graphics at resolutions from 640x480 in 8-bit color to a breathtaking 1280x1024 in 24-bit color. Combined with true 3D sound, Millennium Four: The Right promises the most immersive gaming experience ever. Millennium Four: The Right also offers full multiplayer support using a unique, "serverless" design, allowing multiplayer games to continue even if the player who started the game leaves. Millennium Four: The Right supports modem, LAN and Internet play for up to 32 players in three different modes: Single System MultiSlayer (TM), Multiple System MultiSlayer, and Full Game Universe, where players compete through trade as the Centauri/Aahnja conflict escalates.

Millennium Four: The Right is scheduled for release in late 1997. Additional information about Millennium Four: The Right will be posted periodically on 5D Games' web site at http://www.5dgames.com. 5D Games, Inc. was founded July 1, 1996 by five former employees of Papyrus Design Group, Inc. and is dedicated to producing state-of-the-art 3D games for the Windows 95 and Macintosh platforms. 5D Games, the 5D Games logo, Aahnja, Aahnk, and MultiSlayer are trademarks of 5D Games, Inc.
