BlockParty (game portal)
BlockParty is an upcoming free online game portal and social network service, which will be served by the Los Angeles-based Nexon America, a subsidiary of South Korean Nexon Corporation. BlockParty will succeed the current Nexon America game portal by taking over the portal service of MapleStory, Mabinogi, Combat Arms, Dungeon Fighter Online, PopTag!, Vindictus and Atlantica Online as well as future Nexon America games.
BlockParty will serve a large variety of games from the casual PopTag!, to the hardcore action Vindictus and the first-person shooter, Combat Arms. Many more online games are scheduled for publishing through BlockParty including Dragon Nest, an action MMORPG scheduled for the second half of 2011.
Nexon Corporation also runs game portals servicing South Korea, Japan and Europe with partners in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, Vietnam, Russia, Indonesia and The Philippines with over 30 games and over 500 million registered users.
