Xbox and the Finnish studio Mainframe would be collaborating to create a revolutionary cloud-based MMO, currently in production under the working name Pax Dei (lit. Truce of God). Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat and Jez Corden of Windows Central have discussed it on separate occasions, stating that it is an unprecedented work and the “video game of a lifetime” for the Finnish studio.
“I know Microsoft is working with a Finnish studio called Mainframe to make a new cloud-based video game,” said Jez Corden in the latest episode of The Xbox Two podcast, “I have no details at the moment, but I know they are working on it and that thanks to the cloud structure it will be possible to do things that other games do not allow. ”
You can listen to the entire conversation from 2:32:36.
Fortunately, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb seems to have some more information, and the project is truly revolutionary in its way. The journalist reported that Pax Dei is an MMO coming out on PC, Xbox, and mobile, which will be played differently depending on the chosen platform.
“If a user is at work, for example, he can quickly log into the game from his phone to collect resources or craft tools,” writes Jeff Grubb, “while at home, after turning on the PC or console, he can participate in raids and more operations. complex “.
Therefore, the idea behind the experience is that the game can be used at any time, in Genshin Impact style, but with more in-depth game mechanics.
At the moment, no further details are known about the project, but Mainframe confirms – on its website – that it is working on a cloud-based “MMO, set in a vibrant world and with new ways to play online with your friends.” We can therefore assume that the project really exists and that it is currently in production.
