Shadow Company FPS by Nexon will debut at GamesCom

Nexon, also known as the owners of the bank account into which Maple Story's billions flow,announcedtoday that they're planning to debut two brand-new titles at this year's Gamescom expo in Cologne, Germany.

The first of the two titles will be a free-to-play first-person shooter in the vein of their previous title, Combat Arms. Called Shadow Company, will reportedly be fairly similar to CA, and will run on Unreal Engine 3. It's scheduled for a 2013 release window.

The second title hasn't been elaborated on quite as much. All we know is that it will be a free-to-play naval strategy game. Perhaps they smelled an opening and pounced on the F2P naval strategy genre before World of Tanks and World of Warplanes dev got their hands on it.

We'll be hearing more about these two potential cash cows at Gamescom from August 15-19, so stay tuned.
