    Valve IP Leak - Stars of Barathurm

    Many of you may remember the mysterious concept art from Valve from earlier this year:

    An inside source has confirmed that SOB (Valve's new IP) is an unannounced game entitled Stars of Barathrum (working title). Plays like privateer/freelancer but also with the ability to command larger cruisers and capital ships. It's a very vast and open-world game where you choose your own adventure, a lot of internal resources are being put into SOB.

    this game was Constantly hinted at throughout 2011/2012 by concept art and portfolio videos.


    guess someone couldn't wait.



    according to another person who has close connections to valve people:

    hehe finally.

    they built a special star system tool for this game. it's amazing. it's true by the way. i saw stuff about this in valve games a lot.



    I also saved all the pictures, if it magically gets taken down by the valve police let me know (They go nuts if something leaks, They even got Johnathan Coulton to leak one of his songs to make a Portal 2 spoiler go away.)

    Saweeet. This kind of IP couldn't be in better hands. The servers for a persistent universe will be rock-solid and up for eternity...or until Gabe dies, whichever comes first.

    Kinda glad I balked at Star Citizen now...

    star citizen will be awesome too.


    the game might be unveiled at the VGA's because valve is planning something for it (The grand prize winner of the Team fortress 2 Saxxies gets to work on it.)

    It has promise with Chris Roberts at the helm, but they don't have anywhere near the resources as Valve to keep a persistent universe alive indefinitely.

    Star Citizen's internal crowd-funding and pricing model is askew given it's an indie game. Paying $60 for a game that'll be in development for at least two more years and may or may not see the light of day isn't a great approach.

    Conversely, Valve will likely go free-to-play to build a huge player-base. In this scenario micro-transactions would work a treat and I'd have no problem dropping coins into the game.

    If I had to pick one pony to back, it's gotta be Valve and I only have enough spare time for one space sim.

    At this point in time, the project is little more than a rumour so your guess is as good as anyone's.

    Given the nature of this type of game, I'd be surprised if it was anything but PC-only.

    Anyway, the setting for the game looks great. Hope to hear more about it soon.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.
