The original Kingdom Under Fire
games were two of the most under-appreciated gems of the original Xbox and, after a few missteps
, Blueside Studios is back to its roots with Kingdom Under Fire 2
, due on the Xbox 360 next year -- and now the PS3, too. The news came during a press conference in South Korea, where CEO Sejung Kim confirmed a 2012 launch for the PS3 version of the game, as well as console exclusives including extra characters and missions.
According to Kim, the PS3 is suited to "the aspects of an MMORPG that requires continuous updates" -- in layman's terms, the architecture of the system is more appealing to them because Blueside can freely update the game on a more frequent basis. Eurogamer also points out that said press release omitted mention of the Xbox 360 version of the game, yet it mentions the impending PC installment. "We're still under discussion with Microsoft, and nothing has been confirmed," Kim said.
We're currently following up with Blueside for more info and will let you know what we hear.
