After complaining about all the red tape surrounding Xbox Live, developer Blueside has confirmed that a PlayStation 3 version of Kingdom Under Fire II is on the way.
Why? Well, because the PS3 "offers many possibilities considering the aspects of an MMORPG that requires continuous updates," so said Blueside CEO Sejung Kim. Currently scheduled for a 2012 release, the designer isn't sure a 360 version will even exist; they only list the PC and PS3 versions for now. At this point in time, Blueside says they're "under discussion with Microsoft, and nothing has been confirmed." PS3 owners will receive exclusive characters and missions although we're not sure about the billing model just yet, and as so many studios have promised in the past, Blueside says they want to "tailor the engine to maximize PS3 use." Yes, well, we've heard that before; the team only needs to come through on their promise. Provided everything turns out well, this is one game that should appeal to hardcore MMOers everywhere; that medieval atmosphere has always been appealing to many. We just hope the PS3 version ends up being everything it could be…
We'll let you know when they decide to release more information about Kingdom Under Fire II .
