Perfect World Entertainment has announced their upcoming MMORPG Swordsman, a martial arts based fantasy based off the famed Wuxia novels Louis Cha. This Eastern inspired MMO features ten different unique fighting styles, all shown off by their new Angelica III engine.
GM of Publishing, Andrew Brown, is excited to have the East meet West, stating “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!”
Within the era of the Ming Dynasty, players will explore the world of martial arts as a member of one of the ten class-defining martial arts schools, attempting to master legendary fighting skills for defeating rival schools and the Ming government.
