All right, so what if you were playing an MMO RPG-shooter based on the gameplay likes of Gears of War? Would it not be the coolest thing ever? Well, in some regards that’s exactly what an upcoming project, code-named Project E, is doing. So you want to take a look? Of course you do.

Project E is an upcoming project (duh) by Game Hi. The game mirrors the likes of most online RPGs via quests and leveling, but has all the fast-paced, intense action of a third-person shooter. To be more exact, Project E is almost an exact replica in the playing-style of Gears of War. What’s more, though, is that this is one of six projects currently under the development wing of Game Hi, a southeast Asian company.

The actual gameplay is an over-the-shoulder style experience, with frantic action that takes place in deathmatch-esque environments. The only difference between this and Gears of War appears to be the armor variations. But given that this is an RPG-shooter, what else would you expect? Info on the game has been kept to a minimum due to the fact that the game isn’t due out until 2010. I’m shocked Epic and Microsoft have yet to make a move on this project and streamline it into an actual Gears of War MMO.

But until an actual press release appears from MS regarding a Gears of War MMO, you'll have to make due with the two trailers of Project E, below. The first trailer is a CG video that looks fan-darn-tastic and the second trailer is of the actual gameplay. You can check out the Main Website for GameHI, but it's all in Korean...so good luck with that.
