The official service of the Japanese service of first-person shooter Shadow Company: The Mercenary War has been opened by Nexon Japan on September 19, 2012. New content and new events have been added to the game along with the official launch. Details about these events can be read at http://shadowcompany.nexon.co.jp/notice/update_detail.aspx?seq=54.
Shadow Company is published in South Korea by CJ E&M and in China through Tiancity. The game will be launched in North America and launched in Europe through Nexon America and Nexon Europe in late 2012 or early 2013. Shadow Company is developed by Doobic Studio, the studio which brought the world Combat Arms.
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)
Nexon Co. Ltd. (Nexon Japan) has launched the teaser site for upcoming first-person shooter Shadow Company: The Mercenary War. Developed by Doobic Studios, the same studio which developed Combat Arms, Nexon has acquired the publishing rights to the game in Japan, North America and Europe. All three services are expected to begin by the end of the year. Shadow Company is published in Korea by CJ E&M.

I’ll put reservations on my honest opinion of the game until I actually get the chance to play it.
Nexon America has finally sent a release to the public on their plans to publish Shadow Company. This over a week after it was revealed that Nexon had acquired the publishing right to the game in North America. This press release has also revealed that Nexon also holds the rights to the game in Europe and Japan.
