CryENGINE 2 MMORPG

Korean developer XLGames announces plans to create an MMORPG using Crytek's CryENGINE 2:
FRANKFURT, GERMANY / SEOUL, KOREA, August 20, 2007 -- XLGames, the game company founded by Jake Song, former Executive VP of Development at NCSoft, and creator of Lineage, the most successful MMORPG game released to date, today announces that they have entered into an agreement with German developer Crytek to license the award winning CryENGINE 2 for use in their newest MMORPG.

“We are very excited to be working with the Crytek team again” says Vice President and Technical Director Patrick Doane. “We previously had a lot of success using their ground breaking CryENGINE 1 technology while at NCSoft for AION, and after seeing what it could do in the early previews of Crysis, we just knew we wanted to continue to work with their great new tools and engine”. Adds CEO Jake Song, “The CryENGINE 2 is in a class by itself, and is the perfect technology on which to build our future gaming world and business. Not only are the graphics unquestionably the best available, but the unprecedented ability it offers to physically interact with the environment will allow us to create entirely new modes of game play which up to now we could only dream of implementing”.

“Crytek is extremely pleased to have XLGames join the select number of companies who have chosen our technology as the basis for their next major project.” said Faruk Yerli, managing director of Crytek, “Jake Song is a true pioneer and legend in the world of massively multiplayer games, having almost single handedly created the original market for them in Asia. To now have his own company select the CryENGINE 2 as their middleware, and Crytek as their primary technology provider, demonstrates a high level of confidence in our tools and technology, as well as in our team’s ability to support their ongoing efforts to build a ground breaking new next generation game, not only now, but also for many years to come.”

But look at Lineage... I don't care how it looks, but if it's anything like all the rest of the Asian/Korean MMO's I don't want to touch it.

On an unrelated note, this marks my 100th post in 7 years!

Well, it isn't exactly the level of a PURPLE NURPLE - but at least you haven't gotten kicked in the ballz yet.

you gonna need a supercomputer to run this? or is this the mmorpg that runs at 1fps?

Considering they are making an MMOG. If they are just now licensing the engine, the game probably won't see the light of day for 3+ years. By then we'll all be on 8-core CPU's with 4 gigs of ram and using video cards that come with 2 gigs of ram at least.

Make that over 9 million active subscribers as of last month... it boggles the mind.

Korea called. They'd like to have a word with you.

At its largest it had around 3 million subscribers.
WOW has, or has had over 8 million.

I thought all Asians, including Koreans, were good at math?

Any by what standards are they measuring success? I would put it behind WOW, and EverQuest.

So they previously worked with CryENGINE 1. I wasn't aware anyone licensed it. I'd like to see what they did with it.
