Pearl Abyss the developers of Black Desert Online have just announced 3 new games at G-Star 2019 today. One of their new titles is has co-creator of Counterstrike Minh Le working on it. Game is announced for PC and consoles and appears to shame some similarities to the game Generation Zero. The graphics look pretty good and I hope the gameplay is at least half as good what is shown in the trailer. Looks like it is going to be a third person shooter. And I certainly hope the game doesn't take forever to come to the West like Black Desert Online.

Seung-ki Lee (Lead Producer)

“Hello, everyone. My name is Seung-ki Lee, the lead producer of PLAN 8. PLAN 8, the title I’m going to introduce today, is quite unique. PLAN 8 is the first ever shooter genre title to be introduced by Pearl Abyss. In addition to its action-packed gameplay and realistic in-game graphics, PLAN 8 offers an open world MMO element of play that adds to the blood-pumping excitement unique to the shooter genre. The name PLAN 8 is closely tied to the mysterious setting of the world. We’re planning on revealing some hints regarding its meaning when the opportunity arises in the future, so be on the lookout! In addition, we plan to release the game first on console and PC.

“I’d now like to use this opportunity to highlight two aspects of the game. The first aspect concerts the genre of PLAN 8. From the outset, we aspired to develop a next-generation shooter and really aimed to create something above and beyond the conventions of shooter games already out there. This is why we’re aiming to develop a vast open world and a profound worldview for PLAN 8. We’re also really placing an effort to develop an interesting and suspenseful story that unfolds in the world of PLAN 8.

“Pearl Abyss has plenty of experience developing MMORPGs. We combined our know-how of MMORPG development and combat-driven styles of play to develop an entirely new game for the shooter genre.

“From what I’ve told you so far, you’ll find it difficult to define PLAN 8 into a single genre such as a shooter game. Our team aims to create a unique shooter genre title with elements of MMO styles of play. To do so, the team is poised to realist its vision of developing this unique title by harnessing Pearl Abyss’ proprietary game engine and its development know-how. Not tot mention, we also have Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le on board the team.”

Minh Le (Technical Adviser)

“It’s a great honor for me to be here and to help present this new project PLAN 8. I’ve been working at Pearl Abyss for a few years now, and every day I get to see the amazing work that my co-workers are creating for this game. It just makes me really excited to be a part of this project. We’re calling PLAN 8 an ‘exosuit MMO shooter.’ The ‘exosuit’ refers to robot gear that the players can wear that gives them amazing abilities. We’re going to have a lot of different types of gear that players can wear, and this will open up some amazing unique gameplay that has never before been seen in any game.”

Wow, looks promising! Thanks for sharing.

I'm a big believer that the world needs a lot more MMO-action games. This looks like a good mashup of The Surge and maybe the better parts (co-op?) of Anthem? I don't know, too early to tell, but I am hopeful.

Not the biggest fan of Korean game development or Black Desert Online, but that's just me.

Seems like the FPS/TPS genres are slowly opening up again.

Minh Le is not exactly a name-drop after he'd made Tactical Intervention.

1% chance to upgrade your gun, fail and it's gone, not gone if you pay some dollars.
