NASA to create MMO

NASA Learning Technologies and the Innovative Partnership Program Office have selected game developers Virtual Heroes, Project Whitecard and Information in Place to create a realistic virtual world that will allow gamers to explore the next 30 years of manned space exploration from the comfort of the couch.

The new game, which will be released next year, is being developed with input from past and current NASA astronauts as well as scientists, engineers, and GS level employees. As a result, all of the spacecraft, robotics, technology and gadgets in the game will be based on current NASA prototypes, offering a realistic journey into space.

The team has selected Epic’s Unreal 3 engine to develop the world, which is apparently going to be called “Astronaut: Moon, Mars & Beyond”.
