If you do not know, the online shooter genre is still in its infancy stage in China. I guess this will surprise some, seeing how big a gamer pool the biggest country in the world has. But recently, some of the big MMO companies have started to announced more games of such a genre. The biggest company of them all, Tencent Games, was not to lag behind and revealed 4 online shooter titles at today’s annual press conference. The company’s first MMOFPS, Crossfire Online, achieved a peak of 2.7 million con-current players at one point. Here are the 4 games which Tencent Games will be publishing, with no scheduled date currently announced.
This mysterious title was teased just earlier this month. Developed by Tencent Game’s own in-house studio using the Unreal 3 Engine, the game offers players several weapons out of the norm and vehicles, including mechanical armors, chainsaws, flamethrowers, laser guns, helicopters and more. PvE content will be on par with what the PvP side has to offer.
Developed by Korean studio, Webzen using the Unreal 2.5 Engine, Tencent Games has officially been announced as the game’s publisher in China. The global English server is apparently under construction, which you can view here.
A product of Korean developer, Vertigo Games, War of Zombie took nearly 5 years to be developed. As you can tell from the game’s title, the focus will be on fighting off the undead in this MMOFPS.
Some gamers love the name, others gave it a face-palm. No matter what, Warface is still going to be a top-notched MMOFPS, being developed using the latest CryEngine 3 and by Crytek Korea. The game will also be the first online shooter ever to be developed using this engine.
