At the SXSW Screenburn 2011, IngZ, Inc has announced that it is developing Traveller-AR; a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) RPG based on the Traveller RPG for the iPhone.

Players will get to pick a character class and immerse themselves in the game world as they fight, trade or explore the wide universe that is Traveller.

The MMO will utilize the iPhone’s Augmented Reality to overlay your view in the real world with the game world and also grant you bonuses as you connect with nearby players based on your GPS location.

There’s also a Youtube trailer for the upcoming game.

The game is due to be released in Summer 2011 but you can sign up for their Beta programme here with free in-game credits.
