Netmarble's upcoming PC game Overprime to use latest technology from Intel
Intel will use its latest technology to optimize the graphics of Netmarble’s upcoming PC game Overprime and will jointly promote the game with the Korean game publisher in the global market, the two companies said Monday.
Intel and Netmarble signed an agreement on April 29 to use the chipmaker’s latest processors and graphic cards to refine the new game ahead of its release.
Intel will offer its Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) upscaling technology that automatically increases the graphic resolution of a game using artificial intelligence.
The chipmaker will promote the game both online and offline, through methods including digital advertisements and giving offline retailers additional benefits if they purchase the game.
“We are happy to collaborate with Netmarble, a game publisher and developer that has been leading the game market,” said Kim Jun-ho, director of Asia Pacific client application engineering at Intel.
“We will be continuing with various collaborations with Netmarble so that gamers can get the best gaming experience through our partnership.”
Overprime is an online 3-D third-person shooter (TPS) game that will be released on the global game platform Steam by the end of this year and is one of the biggest new titles to come from the company this year.
It is a team-based multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game where two teams compete to conquer the enemy base. The second round of closed beta testing began on April 29 and will run until May 9.
