Perfect World Entertainment announced a new free-to-play martial arts-inspired MMORPG, Swordsman. The game is based on the famed novels of Louis Cha and will offer players a unique experience by compelling a fantasy story and ten unique combat systems.
Swordsman is built on the latest Angelica III engine, capable of highly detailed character models, smooth animations, and realistic environmental changes.
“We’re constantly looking to add to our library of games,” said Perfect World Entertainment’s GM of Publishing, Andrew Brown. “Bringing Swordsman to a Western audience is something we’ve wanted to do all along. With its rich story and engaging gameplay, Swordsman is a cultivation of our previous and successful titles we’ve brought over from our parent company Perfect World Inc. We’re currently in an alpha testing phase and the game simply looks amazing. We look forward to bringing it in to closed beta to give players the chance to check it out for themselves, so stay tuned!”
Swordsman will be more of a themepark MMO with a rich storyline and lore, featuring 10 martial arts schools, each with a variety of skills and strategies. Each character will have three sets of styles, with more than 6 skills in every style. As you’ll progress in your adventure you will be able to create or join a guild in order to participate in exclusive events such as territory fights.
