The undisputed leader in social gaming held a big conference today to announce ten new titles. But one game, Castleville, is getting more attention than all the rest.Details are still light as the game was just announced today, but so far we know that Zynga is intending the game to be an MMORPG, potentially even a competitor with leaders in the genre like World of Warcraft.

We also know that the game is being helmed by former Ensemble Studios employee Bill Jackson who worked on Age of Empires and Halo Wars. The game will feature a number of MMORPG tropes like crafting and exploration. We can only assume that this is merely the tip of the iceberg, and we’re very intrigued to learn more.
