BigWorld Mobile is the latest integrated module that enables wireless connectivity to BigWorld powered games. BigWorld Mobile is available as: an adjunct to the BigWorld Technology Suite, a standalone mobile MMO or a persistent casual game platform.
“Developers are looking to offer a more connected experience to Gamers”, noted CEO John De Margheriti, “BigWorld Mobile offers the flexibility of direct communication between players, including direct interaction in established online MMOs, and even the development of a mobile only MMO or multiplayer casual game. I look forward to seeing how developers apply this technology to new and innovative game spaces”.
“Persistent worlds have been well received,” said Robert Spencer, Strategic Business Manager of BigWorld, “We are now taking this to the next level with pervasive availability of online games. Gamers are now able to participate in their favorite IP, anywhere they have a wireless or mobile connection”.

The BigWorld Server architecture allows operators to run several games on a single server cluster, dramatically reducing the cost of running the game, while the enhanced Content Creation Pipeline reduces the time and cost of building and filling out the complex worlds required in next-generation games.
