Best-selling author Tad Williams' Otherland series is quite possibly one of the most thrilling virtual reality novel series of our time. In 2012, gamigo and dtp entertainment will bring an incredibly elaborate free-to-play online game based on the novels to Europe and North America. The two Hamburg-based publishers have signed a license agreement that gives gamigo the exclusive rights to publish the game online in the West while dtp focuses on the retail version of the game.
The dtp studio RealU, an international team made up of experienced developers, has been working on the action-packed and story-driven MMORPG built on the Unreal 3 engine since 2006.
Patrick Streppel, Executive Board Member at gamigo, said: "Otherland marks another milestone in gamigo's history. As an up-and-coming AAA game in the free-to-play market, the game boasts superb graphics, fascinating scenarios and truly innovative gameplay. Otherland will be our flagship game in the coming year and will provide a unique game experience for players from Europe and North America."
Frank Brügmann, CEO of dtp entertainment added: "With Otherland, our studio RealU is creating a revolutionary online game that is already considered one of the most promising games of the upcoming year. We are confident that we have found the right partner in gamigo and are really looking forward to working together and to the upcoming year, when players will be able to set foot in the fascinating universe of Tad Williams' novels for the first time."
Registration for beta testing, which is scheduled to begin during early 2012, is now open at Otherland-Game.com.
