NCSoft has unveiled its new MMO Sci-Fi shooter. As part of the announcement, there is a lot of information from the developers about the game and in-game footage to admire.
Today, South Korean developer studio NCSoft (known for games like Guild Wars, Aion, or Blade & Soul) officially announced that it is currently working on a new game IP. The game is set in a future Seoul and combines various genres.
The LLL game will be a futuristic MMORPG
The so-called LLL game seems to be a mix of Sci-Fi Shooter and MMO. The new title was presented today, along with several interviews of the developer as well two videos showing gameplay.
The first video is a gameplay trailer. Here you can get a feeling of the setting, which according to the developer, is a modern, but fictional Seoul with historical influences. The character runs in third person through a devastated city and defeats heavily armed enemies. That the game is a sci-fi shooter becomes clear at the latest when the player controls a giant battle mech. At the end of the video, we also get to see a gigantic ominous creature.
The second video features interviews with the lead developers, including technical director Son Donghee, art director Bae Incheol, as well as Bae Jaehyun as the project lead. During the interview, a lot of different game content is shown. There is in-game footage and various concepts of the LLL game to see, about which the developers talk. According to Jaehyun, the concept of the game is based on two central questions:
“what if multiple groups at starkly different levels of technological advancement were to encounter each other?”
“if technology were to advance without limitations, would what it means to be human also change?”
He also says that the game is an open-world title that will offer quite a lot of exploration possibilities with an area more than 30 km (18.64 miles) wide. The fictional story of the game takes place in the South Korean capital Seoul, which, due to grievances, mixed a futuristic 23rd century with Byzantine influences. There are numerous Sci-Fi games, such as Dune, which inspired the artists.
According to the project manager, the team travels to Seoul frequently to create 3D maps from scans and to gather new source material for the LLL game. The two videos already reveal a lot of information about the gameplay. In addition to infantry and controllable robots, there will also be helicopters you can control to explore the environment. With two different gameplay modes, such as PvE as well as PvP, the developer also plans for all tastes.
According to NCSoft, LLL is scheduled for release in 2024 for consoles and PC.
