Publisher Kakao Games announced a partnership with Bluehole today in which it would be backing and publishing the developer's latest MMORPG project -- code-named "Project W". According to the announcement, the new game will "bring back the fundamental joys of playing an MMO," and is being worked on by veteran developers such as the former Chief Art Director of NCSOFT, Hyung-Jun Kim.

No details have been offered on what we can expect from Project W. Rather, the release says we can expect information on the game at a later date. Seeing as this is Bluehole's first MMORPG project since the free-to-play action-combat game TERA, it will be interesting to see if they head in a different direction.

heh. screw kakao. I will wait for a private server if this is any good. after bdo bait & switch (class-actionable in NA at least over fraud) they only deserve to go out of business. They'll never get a dime out of me, and if there are profitable (in real world currency exchanged) exploits or hacks in their games i will utilize them as aggressively as I am able and once I feel I have made enough through it I will announce it throughout the games involved so that everyone and their uncle can cheat their butts off.

Don't care about male classes but less loli wouldn't hurt.
As well as less beach costumes, or restrict them to places they were meant for - beaches.

If it shows almost nude characters almost every 5 minutes like tera online does then I'll pass I loved tera online but I don't wanna see almost nude characters every second of the time I'm logged on.
