Here are the livestreams that WingMan and his team did to talk more about the game and the focus of development.
This is THE moment we all have been waiting for even I myself find it hard to even believe it is finally happening, feel free to support this fabulous project
Here their main page:
Here their forum:
Over there I go as Obi-Wan Kenobi at the forums and I am just helping them get some publicity, they are using Unreal Engine 4.0 and the game will be fully SMP Friendly and have full 64 Bit Support.
Also I made my intro with my Descent/Freespace collection which is the largest of it's kind in the world:

Since I still enjoy playing Descent 1 & 2 and sometimes 3 as well I thought I'd pass this along here, so you new gen gamers can also try out this new game when its ready for Early Access
The game is a 6DoF meaning Six Degrees of Freedom so it will be like flying a Harrier Jump Jet in many ways, DU will have Single player & full Multiplayer support over ISP and LAN,
But yer feel free to check it out it's pretty good looking and the gameplay will make this a hit I am thinking, we needed a new Descent badly and I am sure that this will surly give the Descent fans what they all have been waiting for, catch ya around my DBB Buddies
And here a link showing the so far planned roadmap
