In-Game Events: The Excitement of Limited-Time Challenges
One of the earliest online multiplayer games was the University of Virginia’s Island of Kesmai, created in 1985. It was a text-based adventure with ASCII graphics and was considered a precursor to modern MMORPGs. Meridian 59, Ultima Online and EverQuest made further inroads into the growing genre as Internet technology matured during the 90s. The advent of the Xbox Live platform and its sophisticated broadband compatibility paved the way for the massively multiplayer online games that are so prevalent today.
Mobile games that allow users to play with other players over a network are also increasingly common. The latest in the Asphalt racing series by Gameloft allows players to create a club, add friends and then challenge each other to races. It also offers a career mode and daily “events” that keep gameplay fresh.
