CORE Connect promises to bring Perfect World players together "like never before".
With a lot of MMOs (in particular those popular in China) seeing a decline of membership in favor of social network site gaming, many MMO developers are taking steps to secure an in-game link between gaming life and social life. Open guild management, Facebook connects, and in-game profile systems are becoming more and more prevalent as developers attempt to bridge the gap between a gamer's in-game life and the outside world.
It's only fitting that Perfect World Entertainment Inc. would follow suit with CORE Connect, a social networking platform aimed at connecting players across Perfect World games.
"The aim of CORE Connect is to make it easier for players to share their gaming experiences and connect with other gamers," said Jonathan Belliss, Marketing Director for Perfect World Entertainment Inc. "CORE Connect is a cornerstone of our continually evolving publishing platform."
The platform plans to seamlessly integrate Perfect World players' gaming life with their social life, with on-board guild pages, a sharable achievement system with a virtual trophy room, a user profile system enabling contact between everyone you encounter in game, and even a Facebook Connect to sync your in-game updates to your Facebook page.
