Amazing, I love how each empire has a different silhouette, camo be damned a trained eye could still recognize it.

Edit: I still think the VS shoulders could be toned down a bit somehow, but still like them

Glad to see female characters didn't get scraped.

Absolutely badass. At least until you slap a Hello Kitty texture on it... :P

I think the NC MAX could use the whole "cage" around the helmet, which we've seen in the concept art.

The TR MAX looks just plain MENACING with those goggles!

And I love it how the ladies are reasonably proportioned, rather than having huge honka-honkas that the common male gamers are accustomed to. Good thing that SOE hasn't caved to that level, unless they plan to add double-Ds as a customization for monies... ;O

That TR MAX looks fantastic. The Vanu MAX looks good too.

My knee-jerk response when looking at the screenshot of the female model was that it's not at a very flattering screenshot, but then I realized that's only because I've been conditioned by the overt sex appeal that nearly all video games use when designing female characters. It's refreshing to see a model that looks functional; wearing a uniform that looks like it was designed to actually perform the role we're supposed to believe that she performs.

Edit* Oh hey, there were more new shots outside of the post. I really like to look of the NC MAX. It might even be better than the TR MAX. I think the Vanu MAX is a distant third. It's nice that they're trying to differentiate the armors, but the VS MAX is just so thin that it doesn't look menacing at all. It looks like a scrawny 14 year old boy.

There are pics of the NC floating around and they look way cool too.

One really cool feature is the ability to change up both arms with any weapon as it seems. Making it much easier to multi role in the Max suit. Still waiting for Public Alpha testing *Cough* pick me *cough*

The TR MAX looks mean.

The VS MAX looks sleek.

The NC MAX looks like it's going to pick up your tank, use it as a sledgehammer for a bit before crushing it like a beer can.

I actually see a VERY big problem with the NC MAX. While I love it like no other, the helmet section looks so vulnerable.

I understand that NC are supposed to be scavengers and such, but the head area looks so weak. You've got an exposed neck (though you can only see it very slightly, and the white cover looks and feels like cloth), and I REALLY wanted to see the rollover bars in the original design.




If they could just add some sort of black neck sleeve to make it seem less exposed, add in those awesome bars, and we'll have one HELL of an even MORE awesome NC MAX. You'd have to raise up the chest guard to be closer to the neck though, but it would make a cooler end result.

(I mean really, without those bars it looks like a FOOTBALL helmet)

Not gonna lie, that was my first thought but Noxious is right about the conditioning with the overt sex appeal.

I think it will be nice (and good for the game) to not have females oversexualized. Females might feel more comfortable and less guys might play females...

You say that now, but how will you feel when it sprints past you, does a 180 and ventilates your armor before you can turn around?

At least 3 times as many.

Couldn't agree more. The MAXes are awesome (at least the one *cough*TR*cough* that matters), and the female models are great. I'm into the "health and fitness" industry, and the female models look more suited to realistic athletic cross-trained women that would be in the military - a look I personally find gorgeous.

Can't wait to get my hands on this game, everything is looking (and sounding) fantastic.
