Graphic engine is getting old

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i was wondering what would happen to the graphics of aion in the future and how much would it cost to upgrade cryengine to the newest version.

Maybe if the game is not dead we can fundraise some money for this cause

They have already upgraded two other titles, Lineage II and Blade and Soul, so they should at some point do Aion too.

Hallo-DN   

I dont know about Lineage  but Blade and Soul  unreal 4 engine hasn't been upgraded yet, Korean NCsoft too busy making mobile games. You can  maybe expect B&S Na version to get unreal 4 in 1-2 years from now.

it has. i played it like a month ago on that new/test(idk) Korean server. But I'm pretty sure upgrading from ue3 to eu4 is not that much of an issue as most of the code should still work.
Changing from one ass old engine to a completely different one is rather unrealistic for a game like aion.

Isn't AION already Cryengine 3?, or is it still the old original Cryengine?

How could we possibly know that man? "Cost" means reprogramming what doesn't work and making the whole game either compatible with a newer engine or redesign a ton of things for the newer code. It has to do with everything from compatibility between engines and the new code they need to make it work.

the way you ask it is as if they have to "buy" a new engine and simply mount it on the game or something. they make the games from scratch, it is the manpower they have to pay to do it not a static cost.

More than NCSoft would fork out.

Probably not too many millions less than making a new game on a new engine but with the same ideas behind it.

I haven't checked on BnS in a while, but the UE4 client (the upgrade from UE3) has/had an entirely separate server from the main game, where you had to start over, iirc.
