South Korean giant to use Epic's dev platform build 'top tier games of a massive scale'

NCSoft inks Unreal Engine 4 deal

MMO publisher and developer NCSoft has licensed Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 in a new long-term deal.

The agreement means NCSoft can use the next-gen development platform for its upcoming projects, with the company planning on building “top-tier games of a massive scale”.

NCSoft also becomes the first studio to license Unreal Engine 4 in South Korea.

“Unreal Engine 4 is an extremely fascinating game engine in terms of its unprecedented efficiency and performance,” said NCSoft chief product officer James Bae.

“We plan to release our best game ever using our Unreal Engine expertise and the new state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4 tools.”

NCsoft signed a similar deal with Epic Games in March last year to develop and publish games using Unreal Engine 3.

The South Korean company has previously used Unreal Engine to create and publish a number of titles, including fantasy MMORPGLineage II and and martials arts MMORPG Blade & Soul.
