Apparently not. It appears they are entering closed beta (a short term 1000 person 5 day closed beta) in the next few days. Korean only.

(Apologies for the not official site link, but Webzen makes it nearly impossible to do a direct link to any of their stuff it looks like)


Also a few new shots up at Games Radar....

Hah!

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it'll ever come to the U.S... I am still looking forward to this one though.

Currently, my biggest fear is the eastern style of ridiculously long levels. Even in an FPS style MMO setting, the Korean style of massive level grinding would turn me off pretty quickly.

Huxley still not dead.  Not really a lot of new information though.  There are a few reassurances that the game is really gonna get released this year for reals, and there's some stuff about the 360 version:

Quote
Webzen says it plans to bring Huxley to market in the US by the end of this year. It expects complete localization to take roughly six months with ongoing testing and tweaking occurring simultaneously. However, that will likely only apply to the PC version of the game. The Xbox 360 version is expected to take an additional six months of time after the game is released on PC to make it out of the gate. If you're looking to play Huxley on a console, you can expect to wait until 2009.

Aside from being a late bloomer, the Xbox 360 version of Huxley will also be different from the PC in terms of the content it contains. Of course, the controls and the user interface will be tweaked, but players can also expect to take up arms in a different world than their PC cousins. We've been told that the gameplay will be largely the same. However, each version of the game will follow its own story as they offer up their own "age of Huxley." The PC version will focus on the story of what happened to the missing Dr. Huxley. The console iteration takes place 50 years later and centers on a terrorist group known as the Hybrid Liberation Organization.

Though the games will be unique, there still are plans for cross-platform interactions. According to Kang, "PC and Xbox 360 players can trade items, battle, and quest in their own respective platform worlds. But in certain areas, crossover is feasible that allows connecting to each other's world. The interface of the two worlds will be through quests in the other's territory or battle-zone and the system will be balanced to allow for the distinctiveness of each platform."

Sounds like they're still trying to bite off more than they can chew.  Of course if the PC version flops in NA, I'd expect the 360 game to get canceled anyway.

The only thing I found out that interested me was that APB is listed as also being on PC on Webzens site. Fucking A!

Hmm, not sure what to make of this bit. They say people will be able to trade and quest cross platform. Could be interesting, or a major clusterfuck in the works.

EDIT: Hold the fucking phone!!!! Take a good look at the shoulder insignia on the guy in the very forefront of this pic.

If this comes out at all in the U.S., I expect it to be Xbox 360 only, Fall 2009, and to be in the battle-torn 50-years-later world. Launching it as a PC means launching an MMOFPS with the same problem other MMOFPSes have had: trying to convince FPS players that an MMO experience is better than the one they don't have to pay anything extra for.

From purely a gamer perspective though, I want a real MMOFPS, so am hoping I'm wrong and that this'll launch on PC too.

Huxley is a PvE game, with PvP parts.

That's part of my prediction, the migration away from the MMOFPS it started out being.

Do the avatars start out drunk? That female model was wobbling all over the place with what I think the designers intended to look like 'breathing'

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something. -Signe

I'd love to know how much the average FPS player gives a crap about their look.

Yea yea, I remember, Huxley's not for the FPS crowd anymore. Still...

Given the abundance of skins for certain FPSes, I'd say that a lot care about how they look.

Of course, a number would choose a skin that gave them some kind of advantage... but I'm sure looks count for something.

I'm still not sure how this game will play at anything above 8 FPS on anyone's computer.

Spotted on google Tech News:

  "Huxley gets publisher, dated for 2008"

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6191966.html

That information dam may soon break, however, as NHN USA has announced that it has picked up the rights to publish Huxley in North America and Western Europe. NHN USA expects to release the PC edition of the game through its online portal ijji.com in late 2008. The company did not elaborate on its plans for a traditional retail release of the game.

NHN USA currently only has the rights to distribute the PC game. However, a Webzen representative has confirmed for GameSpot that NHN USA has also secured first-look rights to publish the Xboxx 360 version. As previously announced, Webzen plans to launch the Xbox 360 edition at least six months after its PC counterpart.
