    Agreed, looks really rad and as the first concept was a 'Type 1' you could actually add more to him to become T2 and T3s. although T1s have been terminated.

    This concept as blood fists base - ok. This as Xan? No way.

    ^^ Xan is Xan, and I don't really see that as Xan. I DO think it's really neat looking though. I could see that as an UT4 version for the Blood Fist faction from UT2004, no problem!

    I LOVE THIS ONE!!! I like the fan/reactor shoulders and I noticed that you used and adapted the torso of Gooba's concept in a successful approach!

    I really enjoy the concepts you've posted thus far Yam. I'm a big fan of the robot faction throughout the franchise, and (I may be in the minority here) I did like UT3 Matrix even though it was more... bubbly. I guess I've always preferred gender neutral robots, since all the menacing ones/terminator/kill all humans themed robots are very masculine. Good luck pleasing the masses, just wanted to say I've liked what you posted thus far!

    So basically I start with a normal car, and by playing I unlock stuff to tune and customize it ?

    So I still think something closer to the "skeleton" would make the process more enjoyable. You can then put whatever chassis or parts you want on it, like a toy or a LEGO for exemple.
    Actually you're doing a system similar to what UT3 had no ?

    The idea was never to have a 'weak' robot but to design all of our characters in such a way that they have room to grow, to become more bad-*** over time via progression, unlocks or whatever avenue(s) that are decided on.


    We still want our base characters to be cool, look tough and be menacing but to not start out with all the possible bells and whistles.


    I really like the base robot Pete and Goob came up with, we're just trying to refine it some. Until it's done it's all work in progress.


    Hope that makes sense. Please keep checking in.

    The "weak" version robot wasn't a bad idea in the first place, especially lore wise. It would be neat to see some robots mining in the background, or being mass produced, or even as an enemy in invasion mod (who said it should only be against monsters ?). The thing is you rather presented it as the player character, were most of the players surely expected something more... tough and menacing. All the previous incarnation of UT had robots which looked impressive, or had some kind of charisma (which is surely a plus when you put them in a kind of gladiator show) and unique expressions. Xan is just the epitome of that idea, which is probably why he's so unique and one of the "main" character of UT along with Malcom and possibly Gorge.

    Anyway I still enjoy to see the quality of Epic work, whatever the result.

    O_O part of me feels bad for dumping on your guys' hard work and plans, but I'm glad y'all are gonna bring the nastiness and held keep that "cool factor" that UT had in the past, and needs to keep in the future if you want to be popular with your target demographic (and beyond)!

    I'm still interested in this whole "progresssion" theme. I'm kind of thinking it'll be tied in to level unlocks or something. Maybe we buy a frame from the store, and unlock bits through level progression? And it has to be specifically while playing AS the robot? Street Fighter 4 had "player points" accross the persons whole account, and "battle points" for each specific character. Maybe that would help exposure to different characters if people HAD to play as them to unlock extra bits. I dunno, just thinking out loud. In any case, it sounds intriguing.


    It's okay if we don't have Xan right off the bat. In fact, I would find it amusing if NOBODY could access him through normal means, and he could only be unlocked by winning a big important tournament XD and aaawww, I dont think the original bot was "lame", not by any standard! I just didnt think it was right for a badass arena FPS, is all :S
