Novus AEterno to Debut at GamesCom

Novus AEterno to Debut at GamesCom

Taitale Studios has announced that developers will be attending this week's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Along with developer attendance, players will get a chance for a firsthand look at Novus AEterno, the company's upcoming MMORTS.

While some studios have the notion that an MMO game is defined as having up to 64 players playing simultaneously, Taitale Studios is of the mindset that the first “M” in MMO means MASSIVE… and massive it shall be. Novus AEterno can literally handle over 30,000 empires in a single galaxy, which is on large RTS map. Keep in mind, there are endless galaxies that a player can jump between, meaning hundreds of thousands of players (if not more) playing simultaneously. “When you play an MMO, you expect it to have reach and feel overwhelming. To us, when developing Novus AEterno, we never felt a cap at 64 players was truly the breadth we were looking to achieve. So we went big. Thirty thousand players or more in a single galaxy kind of felt massive to us. And then you add in the unlimited galaxies that the game has, extrapolate that out… well, that’s Massive to us,” says Studio head, Nick Nieuwoudt.
