Realtime Worlds teases Project MyWorld as a fusion of social media, social gaming and traditional gaming; due out in 2011.



Realtime Worlds' work on is most recent game, APB, is far from finished, but the developer has already started on a potentially larger and more ambitious follow-up.

"What would it look like if Nintendo built Google Earth?" is the question the developer posed on a recently launched Web site. That query is used to describe Realtime Worlds' next offering, which is currently labeled as a mix of social gaming, social networking, and traditional gaming now known as Project: MyWorld. MyWorld is your world next year.




"Project: MyWorld turns the real world into a fun 3D social gaming experience. Project: MyWorld is a virtual recreation of the real world combined with 3D gaming and social media," reads the description.

Additionally, the game's screenshot gallery juxtaposes images of photographic imagery of famous worldwide locations next to their in-game renderings. The locations include London's Buckingham and Westminster palaces, Urquhart Castle in Loch Ness, England's famous Stonehenge formation, and Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.

Further, a YouTube trailer (embedded below) shows that the game will be for PC, and will have players erecting everything from small buildings to entire cities. Additionally, the teaser trailer shows air, land, and sea travel options, a player communication component, and an openness to incorporating all types of minigames.

A second trailer on the site went into greater detail, but has since been pulled. In it, a narrator confirmed that the technology behind MyWorld has been in development for "years" and it allows the game to act as a tool like Google Earth.

The developer says it is currently working with publishers and business partners, and is soliciting fan input on Facebook and Twitter. Realtime Worlds is also now accepting beta applications, and plans to let everyone explore its world sometime next year.

I remember seeing a trailer for this game on the 360 when it was first released, and a few years have gone by since. APB looks an interesting title, but I think they need to concentrate and get that finished before tying t start on something else, companies go bust that way. Plus, its always good to learn from previous titles in order to improve the next one, and I wouldnt think limiting that would be a great idea.
