Well, you probably haven’t heard of Korean MMO developer, Liveplex before. The company only came to prominence in recent months following the announcement of their first “big-scale” MMORPG, Dragona. The game is coming to English shores soon, and you can read more about the game here. I will be posting an improved introduction of the game real soon. Liveplex, together with its main business partner and publisher, CJ Internet, revealed 2 new MMORPGs currently in development and scheduled for a 2011 release in a press conference just hours ago.
The first game is currently codenamed as Project MOS. An Asian-themed martial arts MMORPG, the game has its settings placed during the battle-torn Warring Era and a time where demons from the nether realms is causing chaos amongst humanity. Surprisingly, the target audience, as mentioned in the press conference, are the 30 to 40 year old gamers who are interested in martial arts games…. Weird.
Not much has been revealed, with the rather generic promises of “enjoyable gameplay”, “awesome controls” and more. PvP functions like GvG, RvR are touted, along with various smaller features and content will also be revealed in due time. Project MOS is due for its first beta test in the first half of 2011.
The second MMORPG is codenamed as Project CHIMERA, a Sci-fi based online game. The game takes place around 200years from now on Earth itself, being invaded by… surprise, aliens. However, due to the war, Earth’s resources depleted at an alarming rate, forcing the unthinkable to happen… humanity must now share Mother Earth with the aliens.
Similar to Project MOS, not much is teased except PvP, RvR etc. Project CHIMERA is due for its first beta test in the second half of 2011.
