ESTsoft’s Cabal 2 uses Crytek technology to bring a dazzling world of adventure to life
Frankfurt am Main (Germany)/Seoul (South Korea) November 29, 2012– A new blockbuster MMORPG completed using Crytek’s CryENGINE ® 3 technology is scheduled to launch in South Korea this December.
Cabal 2, developed and published by ESTsoft, is a vast free-to-play adventure set in a world of magic, warfare and breathtaking scenery– all of it brought to life by the talented team at ESTsoft and the power of Crytek’s state-of-the-art development tool.
Initially set to launch in South Korea, the game is primed to build on the success of its predecessor, Cabal, which grew to attract millions of players around the world. Cabal 2 will lead the way as the first CryENGINE ® 3-developed MMORPG to go on general release, although several more are in development across Asia. At the recent G-Star games expo in South Korea, a further four MMORPG’s created using CryENGINE ® 3 were on show; highlighting the engine’s growing appeal to developers working in this competitive genre.
