DUPLEX SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES NANOVERSE ONLINE
Berlin, Germany - August 26, 2008 - It's official. Duplex Systems, a developer of massively multiplayer online games, announced today that it is developing Nanoverse Online, a next generation massively multiplayer online (MMO) game featuring the most unique persistent world ever, the micro cosmos.
The game is centred on Nanobots, complex structures of small nano modules connected to each other and interacting with a world featuring exceptional physical conditions. The world, being a micro cosmos, will offer unprecendented gameplay, unique in many ways and not known in any MMOG today.
"It is not the visual power that counts, but compelling and exciting gameplay." said Marko Dieckmann, Managing Director, Duplex Systems. "Nanoverse Online will bring the fun back to MMOs, a genre full of cliches, copied over and over again."
Nanoverse Online will be the second MMOG developed and run by Duplex Systems, a studio working on MMOG development since 2001. Compared to previous games, Nanoverse Online will be free to download and free to play without subscription fees, only charging for advanced and rare content through micro transactions. More information can be found at http://www.nanoverse-online.com including game details, developer history and personal details as well as the complete development schedule. Interested gamers can register today for the Nanoverse Online newsletter and to sign up for the closed beta that is to be announced later during the development.
The game is centred on Nanobots, complex structures of small nano modules connected to each other and interacting with a world featuring exceptional physical conditions.
NanoBots will come in all flavours and colours. They consist of many single nano modules that shape them and define their features and strength. The variety of modules ranges from simple, static modules, propulsion systems, shields, energy generators, weapons, containers to modules with special functions.
The world of Nanoverse Online is a micro cosmos. Single blades of grass as big as monster trees, rocks as big as mountains, rain drops falling on your NanoBot with massive effects. The world is a huge playground and excels by its challenging physical conditions. There are huge magnetic fields, extreme weather effects, devastating particle vortexes, anti-gravitational areas, atmospheric pressure changes and more.
