Blade & Soul's Character Designer Announces New AAA Game Project EVE

The major mobile developer Shift Up announced today that they would be entering the AAA game market with a project currently going under the code name Project EVE. Shift Up gained traction and found success with their gacha mobile game Destiny Child.


One of the major talents that the South Korean company touted for Destiny Child comes in the form of Hyung-Tae Kim, an artist who made waves in the industry for his work designing characters for Magna Carta and, more famously, the MMORPG Blade & Soul. Kim's emphasis on visually appealing design has garnered an extensive following in the gaming industry of both fans and detractors. 


Not much is currently known about Project EVE itself. The game is being made in Unreal Engine 4 and will release worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (currently slated for Steam). It's expected to be a single-player action-RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world. There certainly seem to be influences from Nier: Automata with robotic women, a desolated world, and the action-RPG focus. The team working on Project EVE has been made up primarily of developers who worked on Blade & Soul, though the studio continues to seek more developers to expand their workforce. 



Currently, there's no known release window for Project EVE. However, players can get a first look at the in-engine graphical presentation, one of the character designs, and a small taste of the futuristic end of the world in the trailer above.
