Ah, the prodigal son returns. IGN
reports that long-dormant MMOFPS Huxley
has fully popped back up on radar (following a random blip in December
) since making a splash at E3 2005 and then flat-out disappearing after E3 2006. Publisher Webzen now plans on releasing Huxley
on PC in the US by the end of this year and on Xbox 360 an "expected" six months later.
The Xbox 360 version of Huxley
will also be different from what PC players experience. Beyond the obvious changes in interface, the PC version will focus on a story about the missing Dr. Huxley, while the console story will take place 50 years later and center around a terrorist group. Despite the different times, there will be "cross-platform interaction" according to the developer. As for the pricing structure of the MMOFPS? That still hasn't been determined. Expect the Huxley
info to slowly drip from here on in.
