Παρακάτω δίνονται οι ανακοινώσεις:

Crimson Desert

Μετά το Black Desert έχουμε το Crimson Desert, ένα ακόμα MMORPG που διηγείται γεγονότα πριν από αυτά του Black Desert:

Σύμφωνα με τον Lead Producer του τίτλου:

Jason Lung (Lead Producer)

“Hello, everyone. My name is Jason Lung, the lead producer of Crimson Desert… The beginning of Crimson Desert can be traced back to the vast desert that spans across the world of Black Desert. You could even say that Crimson Desert was born of a desire to tell the story of Black Desert‘s past. With the exception of a few identifiable in-game homages, we created entirely new worldviews, religions, and characters unique to the world of Crimson Desert worthy of a true epic. Thus was born our next flagship title that continues on with the ‘desert’ theme. This is how Crimson Desert came into existence.”

Crimson Desert‘s subtitle, ‘A Saga Written in Blood,’ encapsulates the epic events that will test our mercenary heroes. Blood will be spilled. The character you see in our key art is Macduff, son of Martinus. He’s the leader of a ragtag band of mercenaries. Here is a man in constant turmoil, struggling with the responsibilities of leadership and the survival of those who rely on him, and a tragic past that no matter how hard he tries, he cannot escape from. As such, Crimson Desert is a story of growth and resilience. It is a story of mercenaries plagued by hardship and pain, and their endeavors to survive in a hostile world.”

Crimson Desert tells the story of many different characters, whose fates are entwined with the main character and his band of mercenaries. Each has their own unique settings and tales to tell, affecting everything from the decisions they make, down the gear they equip. And it doesn’t end with our main band of mercenaries. The lands are full of other mercenary groups, each with their own distinct personalities and inclinations.”

Crimson Desert offers an immersive single-player campaign teeming with engaging quests based on the exploits of the many mercenaries you’ll find available for hire, as well as a vast amount of content based around a more traditional MMORPG format. Here lies a world designed for you to freely enjoy, with various content at the high levels expected of a next-generation MMORPG.”

“Players will face many dangers in the world of Crimson Desert. A diverse range of creatures, both big and small, threaten your survival. This is a world of mythical creatures who are neither friend nor foe, cruel mercenaries vying for blood, and powerful figures conspiriing in the shadows of the royal court. You cannot let your guard down. To survive these bigger threats, you must learn to make strategic choices, all brought excitingly to life through Pearl Abyss’ unique, action-driven combat system.”

“But as many of you will know, your biggest friend and foe in any MMORPG is the other player right beside you. Revel is a world that is as beautiful as it is dangerous, filled with a cast of fascinating characters, mercenary groups, and others such as yourself trapped in a spiral of endless feuds and bloody battles for survival. Furthermore, in true Pearl Abyss fashion, we’ve created a world full of playable content including trade, exploration, and so much more. Everyone at Pearl Abyss is working hard to bring you the ultimate gaming experience, with realistic character representations, rich backgrounds, and action that is as thrilling as possible, whether you’re playing on PC or console.”

PLAN 8

Ένα ακόμα MMO από την Pearl Abyss που υιοθετεί το είδος των shooters:

Σύμφωνα με τους Lead Producer και Tech Advisor του τίτλου:

Seung-ki Lee (Lead Producer)

“Hello, everyone. My name is Seung-ki Lee, the lead producer of PLAN 8PLAN 8, the title I’m going to introduce today, is quite unique. PLAN 8 is the first ever shooter genre title to be introduced by Pearl Abyss. In addition to its action-packed gameplay and realistic in-game graphics, PLAN 8 offers an open world MMO element of play that adds to the blood-pumping excitement unique to the shooter genre. The name PLAN 8 is closely tied to the mysterious setting of the world. We’re planning on revealing some hints regarding its meaning when the opportunity arises in the future, so be on the lookout! In addition, we plan to release the game first on console and PC.

“I’d now like to use this opportunity to highlight two aspects of the game. The first aspect concerts the genre of PLAN 8. From the outset, we aspired to develop a next-generation shooter and really aimed to create something above and beyond the conventions of shooter games already out there. This is why we’re aiming to develop a vast open world and a profound worldview for PLAN 8. We’re also really placing an effort to develop an interesting and suspenseful story that unfolds in the world of PLAN 8.

“Pearl Abyss has plenty of experience developing MMORPGs. We combined our know-how of MMORPG development and combat-driven styles of play to develop an entirely new game for the shooter genre.

“From what I’ve told you so far, you’ll find it difficult to define PLAN 8 into a single genre such as a shooter game. Our team aims to create a unique shooter genre title with elements of MMO styles of play. To do so, the team is poised to realist its vision of developing this unique title by harnessing Pearl Abyss’ proprietary game engine and its development know-how. Not tot mention, we also have Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le on board the team.”

Minh Le (Technical Adviser)

“It’s a great honor for me to be here and to help present this new project PLAN 8. I’ve been working at Pearl Abyss for a few years now, and every day I get to see the amazing work that my co-workers are creating for this game. It just makes me really excited to be a part of this project. We’re calling PLAN 8 an ‘exosuit MMO shooter.’ The ‘exosuit’ refers to robot gear that the players can wear that gives them amazing abilities. We’re going to have a lot of different types of gear that players can wear, and this will open up some amazing unique gameplay that has never before been seen in any game.”

DokeV

Το DokeV είναι ένα MMORPG από την Pearl Abyss το οποίο προσπαθεί να κλέψει την δόξα των Pokemon καθώς πρόκειται για ένα παιχνίδι αιχμαλωσίας πλασμάτων και χρήσης τους σε μάχες με άλλους εκπαιδευτές:

Σύμφωνα με τον Lead Producer του τίτλου:

Sang Young Kim (Lead Producer)

“My name is Sang Young Kim, the lead producer of DokeV at Pearl Abyss. I wonder what you guys thought of the name DokeV. To be honest, there was a lot to consider when the team and I were coming up with the name of our game. But one day, one of my co-workers came up to me and suggested that we name our game DokeV. I was immediately hooked. In addition to being unique, the name was quite relatable. The thing is, I always wanted the creatures in Project V to feel like a good friend, each with their quirks and brimming with personality. This is how we decided on the name DokeV.

“Hmm… so you’re probably wondering what DokeV is like. DokeV is an MMO where players, together with creatures known as ‘Dokebi,’ traverse through an open world full of playable content. Although DokeV was initially planned for release on mobile, we now plan to release it first on console and PC, where players will get a taste of the game’s exceptional graphics made possible by our in-house engine. We’re also considering releasing the game for other platforms, including mobile.”
