View Full Version : Huxley Progress Report

03-05-2008, 02:25 AM
IGN (http://www.ign.com/) has released a new article detailing the progress being made on the anticipated MMOFPS game Huxley. Take a look:

With so little press on this MMO, you may have forgotten or missed Huxley's premise. The first-person shooter MMO takes place in the near future in a world where humans are at complete peace. Things are not to remain that way. A cloud of Nuclearites destroys the moon and the debris trickles down to the Earth's atmosphere. Eighty percent of the earth's surface is destroyed and contaminated by radiation, forcing quick mutation and evolution. A new race called the Alternatives rises and war once more envelopes the planet. "You could say the most immense war begins in the end of the current world," says Kijong "KJ" Kang, Producer at Webzen for Huxley.

Huxley has two persistent cities that allow up to 5000 players to interact at once as well as instanced quests and 100 vs. 100 battles raging on each server. That makes most shooters look tame by comparison, but it's no easy task to pull off and Webzen knows it. Kang told IGN, "We are paying careful attention…for all the possibilities that any server problems could cause an inconvenience for players trying to connect to large scale battles. We are making all efforts for a most enjoyable environment of Huxley, such as optimization of the game engine and an introduction of the newest server technology, etc."

never heard of it..

Me neither. It looks.. interesting, though. And judging by those screens I'll be able to run it.

The guy in the fifth screen reminds me of Starcraft.

EDIT: After watching the videos, eh, I dunno about this one..

I've been keeping an eye on it for about a year so far. Looks interesting, like a mix between WoW and UT3. I've never really been interested in WoW but Huxley actually sounds pretty kool. I've also heard it will be cross platform online.

I've had my eye on Huxley for a good few years, in concept it sounds great but I wonder if they will pull it off.

"Western World" support so far has been really bad. On the official huxley forums, Kang said "I'll give you guys an answer once every 2 weeks". About 3/4 of a year has passed without a single answer.
