Twentieth Century Fox and The Multiverse Network have come together to develop an original "Buffy the Vampire" MMOG. This was announced by Jon Landau a producer and member of the Multiverse Advisory Board during his keynote speech at the Virtual Worlds Conference and Expo.
The ground-breaking MMOG will offer a new experience for gamers, allowing them to play it either as a fully immersive 3D environment or as a Flash-based 2D game, where both types of players can interact. The game will be launched within "Multiverse Places," a new social virtual world from Multiverse. Currently under development, "Buffy" will go into "beta" testing later this year.
"As a brilliant storyteller and world-maker, Joss Whedon crafts stories that expand perfectly into the new medium of virtual worlds," said Corey Bridges, co-founder and Executive Producer, Multiverse. "Not to give away too much, but when the ’Buffy’ team finished the television series, they created the perfect launching point for an MMOG where everyone will feel
like they’re an important character in the ongoing story."
