Project LLL

Open World MMO Project LLL Announced For PC and Consoles

Developer-publisher NCSOFT recently released the first trailer, developer diary, and text interview for the upcoming open-world MMO third-person shooter for Project LLL. The game will launch sometime in 2024 and is in development for PC and consoles.

Project lead Seeder Jaehyun Bae commented on the game in the text interview, saying:

“We wanted to create a new genre that is completely different from the recently popular looter shooter or battle royale. We want to create a new market that is exclusive to NC with a new IP that incorporates the keywords ‘shooter,’ ‘MMO,’ and ‘open world.’ We are developing a project that combines different play styles and elements from NC’s previous games, and we are very excited to share a sneak peek with our community.”

According to Bae, “LLL is a sci-fi game, but it can also be seen as a game that falls under a sub-genre of alternative history. It takes place in a world that started with the idea that the history we know progressed differently due to a particular event in the past. In LLL, a devastated Seoul, the 10th century Byzantine Empire, and the 23rd century are all blended together in the same lore.”

As for the characters, “The difference between 〈LLL〉 and other existing NC games and Korean MMOs is that it focuses on giving each character specific characteristics. Each character has a unique name, and there is a background story that explains each character’s past and driving forces. Storytelling elements will be emphasized to show each character’s unique personality.

From an artistic point of view, since the game’s background takes place over several centuries, we devoted our research efforts to find the best look that reflects and blends elements of each century without creating a sense of disconnect. We also tried to find the unique concept that would fit our setting rather than following the standardized trends of sci-fi.”
