Darewise Entertainment announced today that players are now welcome to apply for access to their Project C. This is an as-of-yet unnamed open-world multiplayer title, and interested parties can click here to sign up. This is to gain access to the pre-Alpha test, that will cover multiple elements of the game. The goal of Project C is to give players a persistent open-world multiplayer experience, where they can join clans, build societies, and explore an otherwise abandoned planet. Corvus is the planet that this will take place on, and it has exotic wildlife, resources, and also powerful technology.
But players will have to take a survey to join this test, and once approved, they will go through an onboarding process that includes a live video chat with a member of Darewise. Darewise is a new studio led by Charbit, a former lead on Assassin’s Creed, who has assembled an all-star team of development talent including Half-Life 2 and Dishonored visual design director Viktor Antonov. The team is intent on evolving open world gaming and has partnered with Improbable to use its SpatialOS development platform.
“Players are always at the center of a great multiplayer gaming experience, which is why we’re inviting a select group of gamers to join Project C now in such an early stage of development,” Darewise CEO Benjamin Charbit said. “The greatest adventures happen with friends and that’s the real ambition of Project C – to give players a truly dynamic open-world gaming experience to play with and compete against one another.”
“Developing a truly world class video game has always required a standout vision, great team and technical know-how,” Darewise chief technical officer Samuel Kahn said. “Today’s best games are also deeply connected to their community. For us to reach the vision and goals we’ve set for Project C, we’re going to need players to join us on this adventure and help us make an entirely new open world experience.”
