[NXEU] Nexon Europe Bringing Shadow Company, Unannounced Title To Gamescom
Nexon Europe S.a.r.l. has announced that it will be presenting two of its upcoming titles, the previously unveiled Shadow Company: The Mercenary War, and an unannounced naval real-time strategy game, at Gamescom 2012, to be held in Cologne, Germany from August 16 to 19.
Shadow Company is the next first-person shooter from Doobic Studios, the developer of Combat Arms. It’s built on the Unreal Engine 3 and promises a fast paced and highly intense gameplay (aren’t FPS’s getting tired of all promising the same thing?). Shadow Company’s graphics actually look a little sketchy to me, especially for a game which utilized the extremely powerful Unreal Engine 3.
The game, however, promises to be highly innovative with a series of unique gameplay modes and systems over “at least decent” graphics and a fast paced environment. Knowing Doobic, the game will be chuck full of content and content updates will be regular and well sized.
Shadow Company is published in South Korea by CJ E&M, the previous publisher of the blowout success that is the Korea service of Sudden Attack (which has since migrated to Nexon, quite a hilarious read). Nexon has acquired the publishing rights for Shadow Company in Japan, Europe and North America. The Japanese service is currently is its teaser phase and is awaiting beta testing, while the North American and European services are expected to be launched in late 2012 or early 2013.
As for the unannounced title, nothing very much is known about this since it’s, you know, unannounced. I honestly can’t speculate at this point. I really have no idea. But Gamescom is just a few weeks away, so we’ll get more info then! (Hopefully)
