Korean developer WeMade Entertainment announced the development of its next-generation MMORPG titled Legend of Ymir.
If you’re unfamiliar with WeMade, it’s known for The Legend of Mir 2, The Legend of Mir 3, and Mir 4. In fact, Legend of Ymir is supposed to pick up the world view of the previous games and translate it into a Nordic setting.
The game is being developed in Unreal Engine 5, supporting its technological advances like Lumen and Nanite. It even uses Epic’s MetaHuman Creator for the characters.
We also hear that the game will support NFTs, which isn’t very surprising considering that Mir 4 already does, allowing players to tokenize their characters and sell and trade them as NFTs.
In the video below, we get to see an introduction by the developer and a tech demo showing a location of the game running un Unreal Engine 5. A character named Brynhildr is also showcased, and she certainly looks very detailed, especially for a MMORPG.
At the moment, no platforms have been announced, nor a release window, but the developers mention that they will “return soon with a well-made next-generation MMORPG” for the players.
In the meanwhile, you can enjoy the video and see what you think.
