Huxley: The Dystopia
is one of the new breed of games about to hit the massively multiplayer online world -- a hybrid first person shooter and sci-fi MMO, built on Unreal Engine 3
. Massively took a good look at Huxley at GDC 2009
, which we (naturally) feel is a solid starting point to catch up with what this game is shaping up to be, given its long hiatus between the early announcements and its re-appearance in the games journalism sphere.
So what will come of this splicing of FPS and MMO? We're not sure how well-received titles like Huxley: The Dystopia
and Global Agenda
will be, but it'll certainly be interesting to see what these games will add to our online gameplay options. In the meantime, Huxley: The Dystopia
has launched a teaser web site with a countdown clock showing just under 30 days. We don't believe this is an actual launch countdown, but it's expected that more game info will be revealed at that time
. If you're devouring everything you can about this particular game, you'll want to have a look at the Huxley teaser site
and its front page video showing off more of the game.
