Kingdom Under Fire II is coming to PlayStation 3. Developer Blueside and publisher Sony Computer Entertainment Korea made the announcement together on the opening day of online games trade show, G-Star.
The PlayStation 3 version of the game is “fully optimized” for the console and “offers realistic visuals that make users feel like they’re watching a blockbuster movie.” It will have “various PS3-only extras,” including “characters and missions,” and “provide services that will take advantage of the interactive features of the PlayStation Network.”
Kingdom Under Fire II is an online game that offers “massive, realistic medieval battles.” The sequel is said to offer better controls than its predecessor, more action, and a character growth system that allows the player a multitude of options to level up his characters.
“The reason why the PS3 is expanding worldwide at such a fast pace is not only because of its unanimously agreed advanced performance, but also its lineup of outstanding games,” said Kawauchi Shiro, president of Sony Korea. “We are now in a cycle of continuously introducing outstanding titles one after another and it will expand the scope of the console. We will continuously look for ways to collaborate with developers as talented as Blueside, and provide the PS3 users with a unique experience that can only be found on PS3.”
“PS3’s performance and network features offer us many possibilities considering the aspects of MMORPG that requires continuous updates, and that is the main reason why we decided to make the PS3 version,” said Se-Jung Kim, Blueside CEO. “I believe releasing the title for the console will enable us to reach out to a broader audience not only in Korea, but all over the world.”
Kingdom Under Fire II will launch for PlayStation 3 in 2012. A PC version is also in development. As for an Xbox 360 version, Blueside has told Eurogamer that they’re “still under discussion with Microsoft, and nothing has been confirmed.”
