Jagex Announces Parternship With SpatialOS Creator "To Create New Online Experiences"
RuneScape developer Jagex today announced a partnership with Improbable, makers of the SpatialOS, for the creation of "future development projects" and "new online experiences."
What is SpatialOS? It's a cloud-based "computation platform that allows developers to exceed the power of a single game engine or server." The bullet points in the description we received in the press release say (with our emphasis):
It all sounds pretty cool, allowing for a level of persistence and scale in online worlds that's rarely been seen, or even attempted; Worlds Adrift is one new MMO that's already using the tech. And based on the words "new" and "future" included in the news, we're guessing Jagex isn't planning to just use this on a new version of RuneScape.
Check out the SpatialOS site for yourself if you want to come up with your own wild speculations.
