NCSoft E3 Titles - Screen Gallery

by Rainier on May 2, 2003 @ 12:04 a.m. PDT

A few days ago NCSoft send out word about what titles they has lined up for the coming E3 and today we received a batch of screens for each of those titles.

  • Lineage II
  • Guild Wars
  • City of Heroes
  • Exarch
  • Shining Lore
  • Kingdom Under Fire

High-tension Battle : The graphic concept of Lineage II is made up assuming that there is a tremendous siege by dozens of charaters which has the most advanced 3D details like those in fighting games. Rampart standing high in the way of surging forces, Plains overlooked by one riding on dragon high in the sky, Archers on the rampart sniping at the coming enemy from far place¡¦These powerful scene will be produced with the latest 3D technology.

Guild Wars takes place in a fantasy world, where guilds of characters of a wide range of professions can make a mark on history. The reason we chose the fantasy realm is that we wanted a place that was instantly familiar to gamers, and also one that offers us near-limitless opportunities for new and exciting types of friends and foes. Like the evolving worlds of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo that we helped to build over the years, we’re creating a new place that we believe you’ll want to visit over and over.

City of Heroes is the first superhero themed online RPG and will offer a host of exciting and compelling gameplay features. Players create their own heroes, choosing from hundreds of different powers, skills, abilities, and items and design their own unique costumes. Then they can band together with other players to fight evil, build their own secret headquarters and strive to become the premiere hero group in the city.

Exarch

Empire building in the game will consist of controlling world, ports, and building within the universe. By controlling these things the players will gain both monetary and strategic benefits. As is the goal with any empire building game, players will be striving to build the biggest and most impressive empire in the entire universe. They will battle over territories, and property, and make deals and alliances with other players.

Unlike the previous MMORPG (i.e. Ultima Online, Everquest), you dont have to go through boring, repetitive, and meaningless hack-and-slash in the world of Shining Lore. The main concept is a virtual world where you can enjoy your life and have fun. The gameplay should never be boring, troublesome, or agonizing. The process of gaining levels in RPG game, in our opinion, should be fun, not a burden or tedious repetition. So we selected the best features of life, simplified them so that the experience will be pleasant and enjoyable, then translated them into the language of "computer game." That is Shining Lore.

The Second War of Heroes had addressed all countries and races of Bersia into battlefields of no returns and been fatally ended with the death of Amaruak. It gave a temporary peace to the continent, however the root of disaster, the Ancient Heart, was yet lying in a coil waiting for its new destiny as sealed. 50 years later, finally this glassy peace has been broken. A human town in Hironeiden nearby the sacred place bordered on Hexter of Orcs and Dark elves has been annihilated by the reformed Dark Legion. The joint armies of Hironeiden and Eclessia immediately sallied to Hexter to protect the sacred place and that became the only outpost of a new war…
