NetEase 520 conference has unveiled a variety of new games for the mobile realm. We covered the Project Ragnarok announcement yesterday, an MMO which tops the bill with amazing Norse-themed production values, and pretty dynamic looking combat. Among the unveiled was also Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, a new RPG based in the famous wizarding world which will perhaps give Harry Potter: Wizards Unite a run for its money. But these two headliners were merely the tip of the iceberg.
NetEase also revealed a Cyberpunk 2077-esque game known at Code T – the T stands for Theseus – or at least that’s what’s stamped on that guy’s face. The game features some visuals which will look familiar to all your Cyberpunk fans out there.
King of Hunters was another to make its grand debut, a battle royale MOBA with close combat. In a similar vein to For Honor, KoH sees different civilisations facing off against each other, fielding a number of different heroes. The Chinese release date has been announced, and should be followed by other regions soon after.

We really know very little about this Cyberpunk based project, but I think there’s a fair few things we can surmise from the trailer:
- The T stands for Theseus
- It’ll be a Cyberpunk RPG channeling Cyberpunk 2077 vibes
- There was no gameplay in the trailer, and nothing has been mentioned about release.
This Norse themed MMO is the highlight of the game reveals, and we actually know a fair amount about it so far:
- It will be cross-platform
- It will combine aspects of MMO and RPG, taking influence from Triple-A games
- It’s based around Norse mythology.
- It has a climbing/free-running system
- It looks gorgeous
