"Dreamcast's Internet capabilities lead the way for next generation console
gaming," said Martin Spiess, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at
Crave Entertainment. "With its incredible single player storyline and the
online multiplayer option, 'Starlancer' is among the first to take full
advantage of this capability - the results are amazing."
"Starlancer" takes players to the interstellar skies in their choice of more
than a dozen different spacecrafts, each with their own custom weaponry,
including nova cannons, pulse lasers and jackhammer missiles. The
state-of-the-art flight engine provides ease of control and unparalleled
fluidity in gameplay as pilots blast their way through a dramatic story

elements, including stunning 3D graphics, dynamic mission structure, and
interactive ship environments.
"Starlancer," developed by Chris and Erin Roberts, who are widely credited
as the inventors of the space combat genre with their tremendously popular
"Wing Commander" and "Privateer" series of games, contains over 20 minutes
of Hollywood-quality full-motion computer-generated cinematics, 6,000 unique
speech samples and 40 custom-composed music tracks.

Today you must decide between life and liberty or defeat and domination. The Eastern Coalition has launched a suprise attack against the Western Alliance Fleet, massacring hundreds of dedicated service men and women. We're enlisting pilots for the 45th Volunteers Squadron. We need every able-bodied man and woman to join the fight if we are to successfully launch a counter attack. Missions range from escorting marine boarding ships to free POWs to destroying Coalition space stations equipped with massive laser weaponary. You are our vanguard. Adn our last hope.
