Newsbrief: South Korean online game developer SmileGate has licensed Epic Games' "Unreal Engine 3" for two upcoming projects. Epic Games Korea has secured a number of big licensing deals with noteworthy game companies in the country lately, including Neowiz (Bless) and NCsoft (Blade & Soul), and others. Along with access to the engine, SmileGate will receive technical support from the company. SmileGate is best known for creating CrossFire, an online-first person shooter that the company claims has the highest number of concurrent users in the world. It's particularly popular in China. Its two Unreal Engine 3-powered projects include one codenamed "Project T," an action-MMORPG; and another codenamed "Project M," a first-person shooter that SmileGate believes has worldwide appeal.
