Huxley: The Dystopia gets teaser site with countdown
Webzen has a teaser site for Huxley: The Dystopia up, complete with a countdown timer.
Gotta love a tease.
The site includes a flash video featuring game footage, and it looks rather awesome.
The MMOFPS is for PC and Xbox 360, and there’s still no release date – we’re getting a bit antsy for it.
Press release is below.
Huxley: The Dystopia Steps Closer to Launch with a New Sneak Peek Web Site: An inside glimpse of the upcoming Unreal Engine 3-based MMOFPS.
April 24, 2009 – IRVINE, CALIF. – It’s really happening. The first online twitch-action massively multi-player online first-person shooter (MMOFPS), Huxley: The Dystopia, is highlighting the approach of its highly-anticipated launch with the release of a teaser Web site for the game. NHN USA, a subsidiary of NHN (KOSDAQ:035420), the largest Korean Internet company, has just opened up a portion of ijji.com to showcase Huxley: The Dystopia providing tidbits from the game and eventually serve as a home to the triple-A title. Included on the site is a trailer-style video, a clock counting down to a second phase of the site. When the time in the countdown expires, the background of the site will animate, marking the unveiling of more content and information on the game.
“We are just as excited as our community that Huxley: The Dystopia is nearing its long-awaited launch in North America,” said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA, Inc. “We’ve put great effort into providing a game that uniquely merges the best from the FPS and MMO game genres, and we are eager to share the experience on ijji.com for millions of fans to enjoy.”
Huxley: The Dystopia is a powerful combination of massively multi-player online (MMO) game character development elements and the twitch-based fast-action gameplay of an Unreal Engine 3-based first person shooter (FPS). Players are thrust into a dynamic world of crisp graphics and realistic environments, where they align themselves with one of two races, Sapiens or Alternatives, in the battle to harness dwindling resources in a war-torn land. Game play is endlessly peppered with attacks from and against the Hybrid, a mysterious third group born of the two races.
