Buffy The Vampire Slayer Goes MMO

4 09 2008

As posted on IGN.com

Twentieth Century Fox and developer The Multiverse Network have announced a Buffy the Vampire Slayer MMO, a game based off of Joss Whedon’s popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show. The announcement was made by producer and member of Multiverse Advisory Board Jon Landau at the Virtual Worlds Conference and Expo earlier today.

According to Gamersdailynews.com, the game is currently in development and will be playable in a fully 3D environment, or as a Flash-based 2D application. Both types of players will be able to interact with each other. The game will launch through Multiverse’s new virtual world, “Multiverse Places,” and will go into beta testing later this year.

One down side to this announcement is the delay of Multiverse’s other MMO, Firefly, which is also based on another Joss Whedon TV show. Firefly was tentatively set for a to-be-announced 2008 release, but the company is now focusing its efforts on the newly announced Buffy title.

For gamers unfamiliar with the long-running show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers, high school student by day, and destiny’s chosen vampire slayer by night. In the show, she was aided in her expeditions with the help of her friends, also known as “The Scooby Gang.”

Hi. I read that this was happening.. they dropped the Firefly MMO to move onto this. That’ll be cool, I liked Buffy when it was on and quite enjoyed the XBOX game.
