Seeing as there is no Huxley board, I thought I'd post this here. 1Up has some new shots and details on Huxley, the new MMOFPSFSK (Massively Multiplayer Online First-Person Shooter From South Korea) for the 360 and PC.

Of course, Huxley's MMO mode isn't just about messing around in the world and going to battle; players will spend a lot of their time teaming up with other players in various missions online. These have been structured into quests that affect the main story and those that affect peripheral side stories, and players can find them in the cities by approaching non-player characters or checking their inbox, so there will never be much downtime. The quests themselves aren't too out of the ordinary, offering battles, item transport, and things of that nature.

The single-player campaign -- exclusive to the 360 -- gives players a more traditional shooter experience, with level-based missions and standard run and gun gameplay. The twist to this mode is that it has ties to the MMO mode, so at certain points in the single-player game where you need a specific item, you can jump online and meet up with a friend to get the item, then head back to the single-player game.

This may sound like a hassle for those who just want to make their way through the campaign quickly, but the developers assure us there will be good reasons for players to want to meet up with other real life players mid-game. Additionally, any item you would need to go online to pick up won't be essential to completing the campaign, so players who refuse to connect to Xbox Live will still be able to go through the campaign...they will just miss out on a lot that the game has to offer.


That Unreal 3 Engine is a fucking beast!

Im so looking forward to this game as you said the unreal engine is fucking fantastic, if I enjoy it half as much as i did planetside this will rock

It's looking pretty good. I can't wait to see how a MMO works as a FPS on the 360. Hopefully they won't add a monthly fee to it.

I just hope it has voice support.

Just wondering if oblivion has a monthly fee... if it doesn't then i doubt this will..... I think combining a FPS and MMO is a great idea and should work well...

why would oblivion have a monthly fee? its an offline game, and im sure it will have some voice support

I'm really looking forward to this game and those shots are amazing!

Most likely this will have a monthly fee. It's the way of MMO's. Either you can pay and play or don't and shut up. :D

Planetside kicked a$$... so why shouldn't this??? Definately one of my top 5 Xbox360 games i am waiting for.:Bounce: :woop: :D

Considering the 360 version has an offline single player as well as online, I can't see this game having a monthly fee. But hey, I've been wrong before.
