    Given that we know *precious* little, until Gamescom (so close around the corner), we have only the tidbits we have been carefully given.

    When I saw the "Welcome Wagon" picture, I immediately thought "Starship Troopers", and the like.

    Given the close-up of "Hearty Handshake", it's apparent that *we* are the new arrivals, and we're certainly NOT alone.

    Time is the revealer of all truths.

    I tend to agree. The ship is "Ark Ship", implying a zoological cargo, including us. The planet is distant, habitable, obviously there is sense of frontierism in the job descriptions (Seasoned Explorer, Battle-hardened Soldier), or perhaps even forced colonization against aggressive local inhabitants. I suspect class-conscious commentators will not be happy about that aspect!

    Of course, we haven't seen any back story yet. It could very well be some kind of counter-colonization or counter-invasion storyline rather than simple imperialism.

    So much we don't know! Such exciting times of discovery! By keeping a tight lid on their project they may gained a powerful element of surprise in a stagnant, declining marketplace.
