[Line Games Park Ye-jin reporter] New works in the second half of the year will be released. Some games are expected to be a great battle because of the open world, which is characterized by huge and free spatiality.
◆ Netmarble Line Games, ‘Open World’ large-scale content notice
According to the game industry on the 17th, Netmarble, Line Games, Com2us, and Nexon will launch the greatest ambitious works of each company that each company has been competing for a long time.
Netmarble (Kwon Young-sik, Do Ki-wook), who opens the door, will release the new ‘Seven Knights Revolution’ on the 28th of this month. Seven Knights Revolution is a game that Netmarble has been polished for four years using the existing Seven Knights IP.
In particular, Seven Knights Revolution has strengthened community elements by focusing on cooperation rather than competition based on Open World. Users can pioneer and own their own private land and share their direct hunting grounds. In particular, it is explained that the MMO is pursuing the fun of playing together with activities such as singing, performance, performance, and flight. The developer builds a single world single server without having multiple servers to revitalize the community.
Line Games (CEO Kim Min-kyu) will also showcase the open world MMORPG in the third quarter. The game is a series that connects the global IP ‘Age’ since 1990, and is based on the simulation RPG ‘Age 2’ and ‘against the Age of Sea.’
The game allows you to play the sea based on the open world, and play trade, exploration, combat, growth, and resource management for purposes such as the world’s weekly and ocean monopoly. In particular, the company has greatly enhanced the visual effects of Open World based on Unreal Engine 4. It plans to build a fleet in the sea of reality by building wind directions, wind speeds, and birds based on big data, and by applying ‘Dipford Rending’ technology, light and shadow in real time depending on day, night and four seasons. The three-dimensional graphics are implemented.
◆ Com2us Nexon adds MMO to the original RPG
Com2us (CEO Song Jae-jun, Lee Joo-hwan) will also release ‘Summers War: Chronicle’ on August 16th. It is the result of trimming the mobile collection RPG ‘Summers War: Arena of the perforation’, which is its core IP.
It is characterized by the enlargement of the content according to the genre characteristics of the MMORPG, and will introduce new dungeons and traps hidden dungeons, user warfare (PVP), party play, quests, gathering, mining, fishing and cooking. The company plans to replenish the strategic strategy that can be combined by redesigning the summoner skill effect, which is the turn-based method of the original, according to the MMORPG.
Nexon (CEO Lee Jung-heon) will also showcase the large anticipated hit ‘Hit 2’, which started pre-booking on the 30th of last month, and the existing mobile action RPG ‘HIT’ as MMORPG.
‘Hit 2′, which has been concentrated by Nexon Games’ development know-how, plans to expand its original scale to showcase its large siege and field combat-oriented gameability as a multi-platform. Nexon also unveiled open fields such as ‘Terra Guard’ and ‘Angelos’, where adventures begin in the World Preview video last month.
Game companies that showcase new works are also focusing on marketing.
Line Games will install an outdoor advertisement for ship illustrations to commemorate the Grand Open Pre-booking on the front of Sevit Island. The large poster of 42m wide and 10m long contains the main characters and magnificent ship illustrations, and the rear banner is made of 32m wide and 7m long, making it clear in the riverside north road.
Prior to the launch of the Seven Knights Revolution, Netmarble has held a ‘coffee truck’ event that provides a free glass of Ice Americano when certified as a pre-registration screen in Seoul, Busan, and Gangwon since June, and was influenced until the 23rd of this month. Live streaming ‘BIG Festival’ will be held together.
Com2uS has published a webtoon made of three summoners, the core content and the main difference between the original, and the webtoon, which is the main character, and the famous singer Kim Yun-a revealed the OST in charge of the production.
Nexon plans to introduce ‘Streamer Sponsorship System’, which internalized influencer marketing in Hit 2. When a user pre-designates the streamer that he supports and automatically purchases a product, some of the amount is automatically delivered to the streamer. It is evaluated as an unusual attempt.
