New Game Codenamed Project X To Offer 400-Player PvP.
For a long time, it has been all about Player Unknown’s Battleground that just came and started ruling the online gaming world. Beating Dota 2 and CS GO it became the most played game on Steam. PUBG offers 100 players PvP on a huge 8km x 8km battleground.
But wait. Could this be the end of PUBG hype? A new mysterious game codenamed Project X (that’s what it is being called) is being worked on at UK studio Automaton.
What’s so crazy about this game? This Project X allows 1000 concurrent players in a single huge world. What’s even more interesting is that the game offers 400-Player Battle Royale on a huge 12km x 12km map. As confirmed by Automatom “an additional last-man standing Player vs Player arena combat mode, with up to 400 players in direct combat.” This is where problems could start up for PUBG. A game offering 4x more than what PUBG offers. But surely with 400 players, the game would be much longer.
This is all made possible thanks to SpatialOS. It is a cloud-based technology that helps the developers to exceed the power of a single game engine by running the game in the cloud.
Project X is rumoured to be released anytime in 2018.
