Notch recently released a demo video of Mojang's upcoming game 0x10c. If you are wondering how to pronounce the name, Notch explains it like this: "I say 'ten to the see', but people can pronounce it however they want." 0x10c is interesting as what I gather from "teh intarwebs" it will include engineering, space battles, seamless space-to-planet transitions, mining and trading, and an open universe with both single and multi-player modes.

The trailer shows Notch running around the area, bobbing around as the player walks around. The bullets emit light which is a nice effect and the light hanging from the ceiling bobs around a bit when things happen to the environment.

I am interested in a modern space sandbox game. Back in the BBS days of yore I was addicted to Tradewars and that was fairly open and allowed you do much in the world. If 0x10c is Tradewars mixed with Minecraft I can't imagine ill ever get my life back.

If I had to guess i'd say LucasArts is working on a Star Wars Battlefront 3. I mean, if they are not they need to get on that because it would be epic.

Well. There was light speculation that they might have hired a new team to pick it up again. But if anything that is a very small faint glimmer of hope from people seriously dieing to play it. The only for sure thing is that if their new game coming out doesn't sell well. I don't think we will ever see a new battlefront.

I'd rather see this become a sandbox space type game. There aren't many of them out there and I think they are some of the best games. I would like to see Lucas Arts grow a brain and make battlefront 3 though.

Well you don't have to see it become a sandbox space type game. It already is one haha. But the modding community for minecraft is really strong so hopefully they make some alternative ways to play as well. Ala star wars. More of an additional feature. Although i do love space trading games as well...and then there's freelancer.

You never know, its still in a very early development stage. They could change the way its played.
