NCSOFT Licenses Unreal Engine 4Posted on February 14, 2013 by Jason Leyanna
â€œNCSOFTâ€™s first Unreal Engine mega hit, â€˜Lineage II,â€™ has remained in Koreaâ€™s top 10 games for 10 years, and people have been blown away by the leading-edge Unreal Engine 3 visuals of â€˜Blade and Soul,â€™â€ said Ray Park, territory manager for Epic Games Korea. â€œWith Unreal Engine 4 in their hands, NCSOFT is set to redefine MMORPG success all over again.â€
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 studioâ€™s Unreal Engine 2-powered â€œLineage IIâ€ has blazed trails across the MMO landscape and has sustained a massive player base over the past decade. Their top-ranking â€œBlade & Soulâ€ was developed with Unreal Engine 3 and has become one of Koreaâ€™s most popular games. â€œBlade & Soulâ€ recently swept the 2012 Korea Game Awards, winning the coveted Presidential Award along with top technical honors for best graphics, sound and character.
