Huxley Preview

Posted Mon, Oct 03, 2005 by Boomjack

FPS, let me introduce you to MMOG.
ArmChairEmpire has posted a preview of Webzen's upcoming FPS/MMOG hybrid, Huxley. We have been informed by untrustworthy sources that Bill Cosby will be filing suit against Webzen, claiming that Huxley is too close to Huxtable the family name he created for the Cosby Show. We have this statement from nobody in particular:

Bringing the first person shooter into massively multiplayer online gaming is something that game developers have been fiddling around with for a while now.  Up to this point, the most popular attempt at such fusion of genres has been Planetside from Sony Online Entertainment.  The game never shattered any sales or subscription records, but it has managed to find itself a respectable number of dedicated players since its release.  Looking a the Planetside model, there are definite signs that an MMOFPS can work, and Webzen is currently in the process of developing their own title in the genre for the PC and Xbox 360 with Huxley.
