Lineage II developer licenses Unreal Engine 4

Epic Games has inked a long-term deal with NCSoft which will see the Unreal Engine 4 used in an assortment of upcoming MMORPG-related projects. NCSoft is officially the first Korean studio to license Unreal Engine 4, and it's already got big plans in place.

James Bae, chief product officer of NCSoft explains:

Unreal Engine 4 is an extremely fascinating game engine in terms of its unprecedented efficiency and performance. We plan to release our best game ever using our Unreal Engine expertise and the new state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4 tools.

Ray Park, territory manager for Epic Games Korea continues:

With Unreal Engine 4 in their hands, NCSOFT is set to redefine MMORPG success all over again.

This is not the first time NCSoft has worked with Epic's technology. Lineage II was powered by Unreal Engine 2, and has remained in Korea's top 10 games lists for the past 10 years. Blade and Soul used the Unreal Engine 3, reportedly blowing gamers away with its amazing visuals, as well as winning big at the 2012 Korea Game Awards, taking home the Presidential Award, and snagging a bunch of trophies for best character, sound and graphics.

Details on the new project/s are being kept quiet for now, but it seems NCSoft already knows just what it wants.
