|Thanks to Barbarian from OGaming for making us aware of their 'Vanguard' hands-on preview which is based on a visit to Sigil's offices in San Diego.|
Here is where I am supposed to be giving you all a rather long description of the preview I had of Vanguard : Saga of Heroes. First lets take the time to get to know roughly who is making this game.
Sigil Games Online is a new game development company, with no titles released yet under its name to date. The company is lead by Brad McQuaid and Jeff Butler; both have worked with each other before in similar environments. They recruited what seems to be the best of the best in the MMOG gaming industry. Names such as Keith Parkinson, Dave Gilbertson, Tom King, Steve Burke, Ryan Elam, Bill Fisher, and Cindy Bowens are but a few of the names you'd recognize. With this team setup, innovation and an MMOG Industry revolution is in the works... and it is.
Vanguard : Saga of Heroes is intended to be a 3rd Generation MMORPG, setting new standards to the gaming genre; Revolutionary graphics engine coupled with amazing communications tools and a team that can use today's technology. This is the first time in the MMOG gaming industry that there have been a gathering of Industry tycoons to release one title.
