Playboy has teamed up with MMO developer Bigpoint, and plans to enter the MMO industry before the end of 2010.

The first title from this partnership will be Poisonville, a 3-D, browser-based title full of hardened criminals, fast cars, and beautiful women. It's not an unfamiliar title to MMO fans -- Bigpoint had plenty of information to offer on this game back in March at GDC.

Bigpoint's founder and CEO Heiko Hubertz is optimistic about the partnership: "Launching this new game through will allow us to directly tap into our ideal gaming audience – avid, online men between the ages of 18-35. We look forward to engaging gamers in new and exciting ways through Playboy's network of high-traffic websites."

While the title doesn't have a firm launch date yet, a new trailer is up and running, so follow along after the jump for a look at Poisonville.
