"It's a PWNS": CrimeCraft In Action


A new, horrible acronym: "CrimeCraft is not an MMO, it's a PWNS, a persistent world next-gen shooter." Yeah, he was practicing saying that in the mirror. CrimeCraft is revealed in the most recent of the GDC videos that we expect to keep on rolling in all week. In it the developer explains how the game is a twitch shooter, rather than a standard MMO, only with all the trappings of a persistent world: guilds, shops, character customisation, kill-25-dudes missions, and so on. The shooter aspect of the game means that they're some classic shooter combat, such as 8v8 domination matches, hitscan weapons, and skill-based play. Interesting stuff, and I'm certain this isn't the only "PWNS" we'll see revealed in the coming months.
