No Comment 50 Views

SEE Virtual Worlds, an entertainment company publishing a virtual reality universe of connected planets tied to licensed franchises, today announced a collaborative deal with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to publish a virtual world based on the classic Universal Monsters. The massively multiplayer online game will allow players to emulate the infamous monster hunter Van Helsing as they track down the monsters in celebrated scenes based on the series of horror films distributed by Universal Pictures.

Slated to launch in late 2011, the new world will combine the classic survival horror genre with the interactive elements of a true virtual world. As monster hunters, players will experience the legacy of the battle between Van Helsing and a variety of the original Universal Monsters including Frankenstein, The Mummy, Dracula, The Wolf Man and more. Gamers will also have the chance to travel to different lands based on the licensed characters including the Vatican, Dracula’s Castle and The Lagoon, to compete in various missions and battles against each nemesis.

The new Universal Monsters virtual world will be the second themed planet published by SEE Virtual Worlds in the Entropia Universe, a vast dynamic 3D environment created and provided to end users by MindArk PE AB. The Entropia Universe features several existing planets and combines a revolutionary cash economy with cutting-edge graphics. Earlier this year SEE Virtual Worlds announced a collaborative deal with the Michael Jackson Estate to publish Planet Michael, SEE Virtual Worlds’ first planet in the Entropia Universe, also set to launch in 2011.
