Lost Continents announced
Colorado-based VR1 unveils its adventure-style massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
Colorado-based game developer VR1, a subsidiary of Pacific Century CyberWorks Japan, has announced Lost Continents, its next massively multiplayer online role-playing game. The game is inspired by the classic adventure stories of Jules Verne and the pulp adventure serials of the 1930s. Players will assume the role of a hero, and they will explore lost cities, fight off supernatural and sci-fi creatures, and uncover mysterious secrets.
Lost Continents is based on VR1's Conductor technology and the Tesla engine, which was used in Nightcaster, VR1's action-adventure game for the Microsoft Xbox. The game will feature a number of new features, such as private zones, which will let players choose who they play with.
Lost Continents is scheduled for release in 2003. For more information, visit the official Lost Continents Web site.
