Former Diablo II Lead Artist Lays Down The L.A.W.

Online game developer Nitrogen has just announced L.A.W., a post-apocalyptic multiplayer online game for adults designed by the lead artist for Diablo II and a "well-known movie director from the Star Wars".

L.A.W., or Living After War, takes place after a 2350, after the Earth "Earth has undergone a nuclear war, diastrophism, and 200 years of ice age". Humans fled into space, placing themselves in cryogenic sleep. Upon waking up they return to the planet to rebuild, only to fall into conflict with the mutant 'Niks' who evolved while they were gone.

However, 'Niks' realize their dignity with the emergence of Leader 'Babitus' and escape from humans for freedom and survival. Then, they found a state in the jungle and enter the era of conflict and war against humans over Power Stone, which are the essential materials for survival.

Yes, it's pretty much all that well-written.

Of course the most exciting thing about L.A.W. is that Nitrogen CEO and former lead artist for Diablo II Jang Wook Lee designed it, with help from "A well-known movie director from the Star Wars." What?

The biggest characteristic of L.A.W. is that CEO Lee, who designed 'Diablo,' and a famous director who has worked on many hit movies, including the Star Wars have jointly worked on the conceptual design to use their imaginations to design very unique future scenes.

Wait, he designed Diablo now? I thought he was the lead artist for the second game?

You know what? Normally we don't do this, but I'm going to just go ahead and drop the full press release in here after the concept gallery so you folks can try and piece it together for yourself. Mind you I really do like the concept art they've provided. Just a little confused as to everything else.

CEO Jang Wook Lee, who was the lead artist for 'Diablo 2' at Blizzard Entertainment USA, released a stylish action MMORPG for adults on life in 2340 after a nuclear war.

Online game developer Nitrogen (CEO Jang Wook Lee) announced on March 27 that they have completed the alpha test for 'L.A.W (Living After War)', the MMORPG currently in the development process.

L.A.W. has two tribes: humans and mutant 'Niks.' Each tribe has three occupations: 'warrior' that boasts high attack and defense skills and techniques to handle blades, axes, and batons; 'assassin' that specializes in hidden combats using daggers, archery, and long-distance attacks; and 'esper' that can use elemental energy to destroy a certain area, summon combat robots, heal colleagues, and control enemies.

The biggest characteristic of L.A.W. is that CEO Lee, who designed 'Diablo,' and a famous director who has worked on many hit movies, including the Star Wars have jointly worked on the conceptual design to use their imaginations to design very unique future scenes.

Inside the game, players can enjoy combats using flying objects, vehicles, and defensive towers to plunder and attack the other tribe and to defend themselves; hundreds of dungeons, boss monsters, and hunting with parties and guilds; and a new resource stock market system where they can trade futures and engage in spot trading. In particular, the game offers a strong Action Skill Rage System that enables combats with higher levels and a betting system where individuals or groups can place bets through PvP.

CEO Lee of Nitrogen says, "L.A.W. is the real game that is developed for adults, shows a fusion view of the future based on the Earth and the world culture, and invites any adult gamer from all around the world."

L.A.W. BACKGROUND Story
In 2350, the Earth has undergone a nuclear war, diastrophism, and 200 years of ice age. The humans that had fled to the outer space in a spaceship wake up from freeze-sleep and return to the Earth to found a state called "Delka" to rebuild the human civilization. They find that Niks, the mutants that have been created by radioactivity, destroy the authenticity of mankind, and keep them isolated.

However, 'Niks' realize their dignity with the emergence of Leader 'Babitus' and escape from humans for freedom and survival. Then, they found a state in the jungle and enter the era of conflict and war against humans over Power Stone, which are the essential materials for survival.
