New version adds mail, auction, raid and guild systems

Icarus Studios has updated its 'total solution' massively-multiplayer online game platform.

Aside from the usual graphical improvements - this time around including texture LOD, volumetric fog and light blooms - the latest version of the platform adds several new features, including a mail system that allows players to send text messages and items to each other, an auction system for browsing, bidding and selling the in-game marketplace, a guild system to strengthen the player community and the ability to go on raids.

“After several months of refinements and testing, the Icarus Studios platform now offers a new layer of powerful technical features and system enhancements,” said Jim Hettinger, CEO of Icarus Studios.
