As the title says FH will be in the box - not the box used for the burial by our good, old mortician fellows, but the real powerful XBOX. According to ArminAce negotiations about that had started approximately half a year ago. As conversations were successful Electronic Arts and ArminAce agreed on the remastering of Forgotten Hope as title for the X-BOX. The Forgotten Hope Developer Team will gain an adequate compensation in return. Although money is always welcome the latest actions were total infamy by ArminAce as no one of the other Devs has been informed about the negotiations before today.
Anyway - we were told about ehe main features of the game already and for sure we want to share them with you:
As you can see on the photo Forgotten Hope is already available as a beta version on the console. As progress is going good Forgotten Hope will be available for the XBOX in the United States in June 2005 at the price of 59.95 $ only. The release for Europe is scheduled for August 2005. As soon as the US version is on market Europeans will be able to preorder the US-Version at TS-Rent.de .
Many of you might be concerned about what's happening next. We have answers
for that. Good and bad...
Last point to mention is that the development of Forgotten Hope 2™ for the XBOX has already started (main reason why ArminAce left the team). As the new product shall be unique as possible and the strength of Forgotten Hope always was the great community the developers decided to involve you into the progress. The Forgotten Hope 2 soundartists have set up a hotline which users from Germany may use to give their ideas for voicecomments or ambient sounds (like soldiers' deaths) that must not be missed within Forgotten Hope 2™:
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION:
1. Aged 21 or older
If you match the listed conditions of participation and accept them you are welcome to dial the following number:
Forgotten Hope 2™ Hotline (12ct/min - Germany only): 0180-5445169-494
That's all for today folks. The Forgotten Hope Developer Team is looking
forward to the upcoming release on the XBOX although we lost an encouraged and
motivated leader, although his latest actions were betrayal actually. Anyway - money serves as comfort always and as we still are able to
develop Forgotten Hope for the PC out of danger to get in front of court we will
be able to cope with the loss.
