Korean publisher Nexon has revealed a new trailer for the free-to-play shooter The First Descendant ahead of Gamescom 2022.
Currently, the Korean publisher Nexon seems to have quite a few things in hand. With dozens of projects said to be in development and the ARC Raiders shooter expected to be postponed to 2023, it can be difficult to keep track of their projects. That said, while a definite release date has yet to be confirmed, Nexon’s upcoming free-to-play multiplayer shooter title The First Descendant recently received a new trailer ahead of its announced appearance. expect at Gamescom 2022 event.
As one of the promising games confirmed to be developed using Unreal Engine 5, The First Descendant certainly comes in with a very attractive look and much of the new trailer emphasizes the incredible visual fidelity. surprises created by both upgraded engine technology and a new generation of consoles. The character models are vivid and detailed, and the environment seems to be nothing “false”. That said, ending in less than a minute, not much was revealed from the trailer despite a lot of mystery surrounding the title.
Nexon’s The First Descendant looks to follow in the footsteps of many successful multiplayer-focused free-to-play titles before. Solidarity and squad-based tactics seem to play a big part and are reminiscent of Turtle Rock Studio’s development, while the battle briefs seem to be at least a bit reminiscent of the power available to those wearing an old Anthem’s Javelin suit. There’s also a moment you’ll probably miss, where a character holds something that looks a lot like Ghost from Destiny and the third-person onscreen shot appears vaguely like Outriders.
Of course, Nexon is no stranger to free-to-play game projects. Best known for MMOs like Vindictus and MapleStory, this publisher has certainly established its niche in a particular market. That said, Nexon was also tied to the troubled release of 2016’s heroic shooter LawBreakers, whose failure contributed to the dissolution of developer Boss Key Productions.
The association with that title and other less profitable projects seems to have tarnished Nexon’s public image a bit. However, Nexon is not likely to disappear from the gaming industry, at least for the time being. As a major investor in big-name publishers such as Sega, Konami and Bandai Namco with many large-scale projects underway, it is possible that Nexon is hoping to succeed after learning from previous mistakes. in other free gunfight games.
