Im not sure if this has been discussed yet, but are there going to be any weather effects in Outcast? such as snow, rain, etc.
these types of things really immerse you into the gameworld, just wondering if they were included in JK2

Was there every any weather effects in the films or any EU materials anyone can remember besides sandstorms? I can't think of any...it would be cool to have them in JKII, but what planet? Many planets don't seem like they would have much weather (Tatooine, Corousant, Nar Shaddaa, Bespin).

They said there will be a snow effect on a level.

Also there is supposed to be levels with X-Wings and TIE Fighters battling in the sky, as well as meteors falling to the surface.

They said there will be such effects, and that they would even affect gameplay as well. Slipping on ice might be a posssiblity.

There was specific mention of a meteor storm - that actually has to be dealt with! Other than that ... I haven't heard

Ice ... that was fun in Dark Forces ... as was so much ... I'm glad I picked it up for my Mac - the enhanced resolution makes it *still* a joy to play without looking quaint ...

I'd like to hear and see wind blowing.

I'd like rain/thunderstorm, its been done in MechWarrior 3 and it was a nice touch.

If the weather and environmental effects are anything like MOH:AA I'll be very happy.

Just imagine ties crashing into buildings above and raining debris down around you. Or a vicious thunderstorm that reduces your visibility to zero and you don't see that stormtrooper until your right in his face.
Cool Hehe :D

The XGR interview with Brett Tosti had something on that. During the interview Brett said that the only weather effect would be some kind of meteor storm, if I remember right.

I'm sure there will be enough weather effects to satisfy us...

I hope!
