Plan 8, a new massively multiplayer online shooter from Pearl Abyss (makers of Black Desert Online), was announced last month along with Crimson Desert (see the latest info and screenshots from last week if you missed them) and DokeV. Plan 8 is headed by lead producer Seungki Lee, former environment art director for Black Desert Online, and Minh Le, co-creator of Counter-Strike, who is serving as a technical advisor. Plan 8 runs on Pearl Abyss' new, in-house game engine.You'll don an exosuit in Plan 8 that grants you some pretty cool abilities, such as super strength. Each exosuit has its own unique abilities, and thus ways to defend against it. Some can scale walls, and others can jump super high. Weapons can be enhanced or modded as well.Plan 8 has no release date yet, but is in development for both PC and consoles. Check out the original announcement trailer if you missed it.
