UK based developer Jagex has this morning announced their new MMORPG project. Jagex, who are known for their massively popular title Runescape, will be entering the sci-fi MMO arena with the new title Stellar Dawn.
The game will be due for release next year and Jagex say that it will feature “science fiction storylines and a variety of gameplay styles” and also “offer players the opportunity to explore vast worlds of futuristic environments and engage with an extensive backstory as they progress through the game”.
“Stellar Dawn will be Jagex’s biggest release to date and everyone at the studio is absolutely electric with excitement as we enter the final stages of development,” said Mark Gerhard, Jagex CEO. “We are really happy with how well Stellar Dawn has come together. The team has deftly blended art, content and technology to provide the entertaining, long-term game appeal that we have become famous for. As we approach the public launch next year we will be revealing many more details about the game to the community on stellardawn.com.”
Stellar Dawn will be released for both PC and Mac and playable through Jagex’ proprietary online-games platform. The subscription model has not yet been completely outlined but we do know that a ” sizeable proportion of the game” will be playable for free.
