Korean corporation launches new CPBL video game
The new video game features real images of the players and CPBL ballparks through the use of 3D modelling and dynamic capture photography.

GongGames, a Korean corporation, has announced the launch of a Chinese Professional Baseball (CPBL) 2021 video game in Taiwan.

The game is based on players and ballparks' real images and uses 3D modelling, dynamic capture photography, and other technologies to create ultra-realistic game images and player likenesses.

Kong Doo-Sang, the CEO of GongGames, said that he hopes that the relation with CPBL clubs will help create a truly realistic game. Pre-login activity has started at https://cpblgame.tw/event/register.

GongGames was established in 2012 and launched its Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) game in 2013. It launched its first CPBL game and MLB Perfect Inning in 2016.

Last December, the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) approved the inclusion of eSports as a discipline of baseball and softball, setting the stage for future official E-Baseball and E-Softball international competitions and World Cups/Championships.

Baseball-themed video games have been among the most produced and most popular in the industry, with 100s of titles dating back to IBM’s baseball game simulator in 1961.

CPBL is an Associate Member of the WBSC.
