Epic Games Korea has signed a licensing deal with publisher and developer Neowiz Games, that will see the use of the Unreal Engine in the studio's first MMORPG.
The game in question, Bless, is a medieval-inspired fantasy RPG featuring ten territories, each containing its own race, across two realms called Hierapolis and Cosmopolis. As you might imagine, the aforementioned realms are at war.
Neowiz's team of 150 have been working on the game since 2009, the results of which you can see in the video below.
"It is great to announce one of our most important licensing deals in Korea, and we're excited to see Neowiz Games' first MMORPG using Unreal Engine 3," says Epic Games Korea territory managerRay Park. "Neowiz Games' extensive knowledge of online games and the technological competitiveness of Unreal Engine 3 should prove a winning combination for Korean gamers."
The game also makes use of the Unreal landscape tool developed by Epicís Korean arm.
