Time for your dose of mobile MMORPG news, which is a part of the genre whether you like it or not. Today, we’ve got Perfect World Mobile’s open beta launch in North America and a press event from Lineage 2M that talked up several technical features of the developing Korean mobile MMORPG.
On the Perfect World Mobile front, NA players can now hop in to the game on Android and iOS for open beta. The game is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin — a mobile version of Perfect World International — as we reported in August’s mobile MMO roundup.
As for Lineage 2M, there was a recent press event that gave a closer look at what Korean players can expect when the game arrives in the fourth quarter of this year. MMO Culture reports that Lineage 2M will include an open world with no loading screens, improved collision detection, a dozen world bosses that guilds will have to fight over to attack in a form of PvPvE, and technology that will allow 10,000 players on one channel.
The press event also unveiled Purple, a Korean service that will allow PC players to effectively emulate mobile games. Lineage 2M will be the first mobile title on the platform and will allow for full cross-play between mobile users and Purple players.
