Around 3 weeks ago, Nexon officially teased its upcoming medieval PC war game, Project HP (tentative title), developed by subsidiary Nat Games. Inspired by other titles such as Mount & Blade, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, and MORDHAU, more details on Project HP was revealed recently, with a new trailer showing actual gameplay footage as well!
Nexon claimed that the 3 games which they drew inspiration from did not manage to find success in the mainstream market, and by adding continuous live service to overcome “limits”, Project HP will achieve that goal. Currently, there are 6 characters to choose from (showcased in the trailer), each having a specific role from recovery, combat, or defense.
Contrary to previous reports, Project HP does include elements of fantasy and even magic, even though the game is more focused on physical and melee combat. No details are currently available regarding the playable panther-like race archer seen in the trailer, and also to what scope magic affects combat (though limitations are expected). We did see transformation magic happening, along with revival magic.
Nexon will be holding a limited Closed Beta test for Project HP in early August, with the game being limited to those over 18 years of age. The current recommended specifications (subject to change) are: Windows 10 (64 bit), Intel i7 CPU with 8 cores or more, 16GB RAM or more, SSD 20GB and Nvidia RTX 2060. Stay tuned for more updates on Project HP!
