2Moons - Preview @ WarCry
A second GDC preview is up at WarCry, this time looking at Acclaim's 2Moons:
2Moons, the second MMORPG from Acclaim, had over 200,000 people sign up for beta during closed beta, well a head of the pace set by 9Dragons. While they have a long way to go, Acclaim is very confident in the title's potential for mainstream popularity.
"We know what we have to do to take [2Moons] to major hit status," Acclaim CEO Howard Marks told WarCry during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Unlike 9Dragons and its martial arts setting, 2Moons is a more "classic MMO" that serves an often neglected niche: it's bloody, it's grown up and it's really violent. This isn't a game for kids.
