MMO The Day using Crysis tech

Dec 6, 2007

Crytek's CryEngine 2 - which powers a little game known as Crysis - is to form the beating heart of Korean MMO The Day.

The Day is some way off - it's targeted for release in 2010 - but first info reveals it's a third-person action MMO for PC. Knowing that, it's not surprising that PvP will be a major focus of the title.

According to Reloaded, the game will feature a unique, immersive story that's set in the near future.

"The Day," the developer continues, "finds mankind discovering a way to travel between two connected parallel worlds.

"Players will face a changing world never before seen in an online game as they travel back and forth between the past and present, accomplishing critical missions that extremely influence and affect their present-day world. With the fate of mankind at stake, players are thrown into brutal warfare and a fight to keep humanity from slipping into self-destruction across time."

Naturally with CryEngine 2 powering it, we're eager to see first screenshots from The Day. And by 2010, we may have actually saved up enough money to buy a PC that'll run the game.
