Will the races for GSB 2 include some of the races from GSB 1? (Or all? Or none?) And, if some of them come back, will their design be the same?
May I have an answer? Please? ^^
(Or someone direct me to the answer, if answer there is already ^^)
A (vague) counter to darkstar076's negative answer:
cliffski wrote:I'm definitely aware of these issues in the first game and would like to rectify them. Totally different weapons for each race isn't doable for such a small company as us, but I'd like to ramp up the variety, by adding everything from the base game, plus all its DLC, and distributing stuff more widely between races and classes.
It doesn't explicitly state that any of the GSB1+DLC factions will be present in GSB2. It does, however, suggest that cliffski would like to include all of them, which suggests that the four races in darkstar076's post are either new names for old factions, or completely new factions, rather than a full list of all the factions which are to be included in GSB2. Of course, an alternative interpretation is that "everything from the base game, plus all its DLC" is in reference to modules specifically and does not include factions.
