Today Frogster lifts the curtain for a big packet of ingame screenshots taken from the new Speedball 2. For the first time a bunch of gameplay images show original match scenes in one of the impressive future arenas. Moody floodlights, light reflexions, excited cheers form the audience and replays on the giant stadium displays set the atmosphere.
Also the modelling of the tough speedball gladiators has made significant progress. Hi-Polygon models for each player type and fluent animations based on motion capturing technology guarantee grasping future sports action.
Kylotonn spends up to 400.000 polygons at the same time for a full 3D arena and all present characters. With eight stepless zoomable and turnable camera perspectives ? from classical helicopter view to angular, side or third person view ? players keep control over their battles. Spectacular jump shots, named power shots in Speedball 2, inflict massive acceleration on the steel ball and force the opponent to its knees.
From September 2007 on, heavily armoured speedball teams will finally clash in their stalwart arena fights again.
