PUBG developer Krafton is working on a brand new game and has released a visual concept trailer.

Based on the Korean fantasy novel The Bird That Drinks Tears by Yeongdo Lee, it’s quite a change of pace from the battle royale shooter.

“The trailer was inspired by concept art from design director Iain McCaig and the Windless team using Unreal Engine 5. The team spent over two years creating a character and worldview on the ‘artwork,’ reads the description of the YouTube video.

“The main goal of Unannounced Project is to expand the epic scale of ‘The Bird That Drinks Tears’ into the gaming world. The team plans to collect the impact of the famous Korean fantasy novel on fans of games around the world.

Little is known about the project, although an official website (in Korean) notes that it will have a “beautiful and devastating narrative as a gaming experience”.

It’s an incredibly evocative trailer.

The novel features a number of unique races and follows the story of Kagan Draka, a human who hunts and eats naga. Presumably he is the warrior in the video.

Meanwhile, PUBG creator Brendan Greene is currently working on a blockchain metaverse game.
