Autodesk has announced that Korean computer game developers NCsoft, Webzen, and Gravity are relying on its 3D modeling, animation and rendering software to deliver some multiplayer online games.
Massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) enable millions of players to simultaneously interact in an online game. Characters, objects and entire worlds for the AION, Huxley and Ragnarok Online II upcoming MMOG titles are being shaped with Autodesk products.
Gravity is using 3ds Max to create Ragnarok Online II, which features full-3D graphics and is based on Norse mythology. NCsoft plans to launch AION, a new massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), in 2008. Using Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk Maya 3D modeling, animation and rendering software, Webzen continues to develop Soul of the Ultimate Nation and is creating Huxley, a massively multiplayer first-person shooter game.
