If you’re getting a case of deja vu while reading this, it might be because Wargaming.net just announced a similar platform at this year’s E3 (video). Like Ignite, it will allow you to keep all of Wargaming.net’s BigWorld-Powered titles under the same account and launch them from a central location. Our extensive blog post on the announcement can be seen here.
Around the time of this announcement there was some discussion in the World of Tanks and Warplanes forums about how if this “Universal Game Platform” will become a standard among MMO developers. Considering these two leading MMO companies are backing this kind of unified game system for their titles, there is a pretty big chance that this will become common practice in the industry.
Wargaming.net’s Universal Game Platform has not yet been released, but Aeria’s Ignite is up and ready for you to try out. Just download it here and play some Realm of the Titans!
