  • General information about EMERGENCY 5.


    „EMERGENCY 5“ was announced on the 11th of September 2012 by Publisher Deep Silver and was released on the 14th of November 2014. The game developer Sixteen Tons Entertainment, headed by Ralph Stock, was responsible for the development. For the first time since EMERGENCY 4: Global Fighters For Life, EMERGENCY 5 allows a comprehensive modification of the game content. In addition, a graphics engine was developed, which should offer much more details and improved graphic effects compared in comparison to the previous versions.
    At the end of June 2014 selected members of the community were invited to Potsdam to attend a special editor event. Numerous functions of the editor have been explained. The core element of the completely revised editor are comprehensive online functions for collaborative work on projects. Through a server, modding projects can be automatically synchronized between different clients. In addition, more than one person can work on a mission map at the same time. Changes in the editor are transferred synchronously to all other active clients and made visible on the screen.

    „EMERGENCY 5“ offers a completely revised gameplay. The player takes control of various units of fire brigade, police, rescue and technical assistants. In the game itself, he has to monitor the happenings in one of a total of four metropolises and master the different emergencies. Little events and large damage occur at random. As the number of mastered tasks increases, the player's points account increases, enabling the release of new city areas and the purchase of additional vehicles.
    The main feature of the new maps is the size - they are many times more extensive than in the direct predecessors. In addition, they are partly based on thei rcorresponding real cities. Each scenario offers typical buildings and objects for the region, in addition, numerous sights have been faithfully implemented for the game.
    In addition to the classic singleplayer mode, the player is also offered a multiplayer mode. In the team, various assignments on the well-known scenarios can be accomplished. For the first time this is possible in "Versus-Mode" also against each other in the team in the fight for the Highscore.
    Furthermore, "EMERGENCY 5" has been adapted and improved to give the players even more access to the game.

    The new graphics engine offers numerous new effects and a higher detail density of the objects. According to the developers, all vehicles were designed in the game with 5,000 - 20,000 polygons. Extensive motion capture techniques were used to create animations, to make the movements of the game figures more realistic. In addition, the graphics engine provides a wide pool of functions, e.g. Physically Based Rendering. Here, the calculation of the illumination is carried out as a function of the material to which the incident light beams are incident. Furthermore, the graphics engine allows the representation of two polygons, which in the game allows, for example, the placement of larger human masses.
