NCSOFT Licenses Unreal Engine 4

“NCSOFT’s first Unreal Engine mega hit, ‘Lineage II,’ has remained in Korea’s top 10 games for 10 years, and people have been blown away by the leading-edge Unreal Engine 3 visuals of ‘Blade and Soul,’” said Ray Park, territory manager for Epic Games Korea. “With Unreal Engine 4 in their hands, NCSOFT is set to redefine MMORPG success all over again.”

Under this new agreement, NCSOFT is building onto its track record of shipping top-tier games of massive size and scale using Unreal Engine technology. The studio’s Unreal Engine 2-powered “Lineage II” has blazed trails across the MMO landscape and has sustained a massive player base over the past decade. Their top-ranking “Blade & Soul” was developed with Unreal Engine 3 and has become one of Korea’s most popular games. “Blade & Soul” recently swept the 2012 Korea Game Awards, winning the coveted Presidential Award along with top technical honors for best graphics, sound and character.
