Bluehole announced today they are making a new AAA MMO called AIR : Ascent Infinite Realm.
This mmo is being made by Hyung-Jun Kim (creator of Aion) and the old Aion team. They left NCsoft and moved to BHS. (No word if NCsoft will sue again...lol j/k)
AIR is a sort of like Aion . It will be a PVPVE, Realm vs Realm game, and Guild vs Guild. But it will be open world. The theme will be Steampunk, with Airships, mecha, guns. That go with Magic, dragons, flying wings, Fantasy.
The story is similar to Aion as well. Planet is destroyed and people survive now in floating cities in the skies. Players will enter AIR seeking to conquer the skies and whatever is left of the land for survival.
Types of PVP
There will be Ground PVP
There will be Air PVP
This all happens in real time, and in the real world.
Open World Housing, Farming, and building
Just like in Archeage, Air will feature open world building.
The conference is going on right now, will post more info as it comes along.
This is a PC MMO that will receive a world wide release. Kakao will release Air in the west.
