Perfect World isn't just a company... it's a game, too! And in just a few short weeks, that game will be getting a big, honking expansion.

Riptide is the name of Perfect World International's upcoming expansion, and, as the name should indicate, a lot of the action will take place underwater. The new, high-level zone is only one piece of big news with this expansion, as Riptide will also introduce the Star Chart (aura) system that lets players unlock unique buffs as they progress.

There are also all the usual things you expect from an MMO expansion: a new endgame dungeon, new daily quests, a Judgement mode instance, new mounts and pets, and more. You can read more about the expansion, which goes live on Aug. 17, on the PWI website.

I'm curious where MMOBomb gets the release date information.

I mean, PWE hasn't bothered to tell any of it's users, how the heck does a news site get the information?

This game is now strictly pay 2 play in many aspects as if you don't 'cash shop' you will really struggle to advance in the quest lines and level your character. The glory days of this game are long gone and dead. These expansions are just PWI playing Frankenstein.

MMOBOMB could you please upgrade the comment section? what i was expecting to be multiple paragraphs got crammed into a single big block of text and i assume that as a veteran gaming journalist, Jason Winters would tell you that is not good at all, even worse I now have no way to edit that chunk of text in order to break it up.

Great, just great now with how it reads, they may think i am rambling like some kind of wacko, instead of a concerned member of the community.

"Perfect World isn’t just a company… it’s a game, too!.."

And a big piece of $hit at that!

Should be renamed to Grinder P2W World.

I think in World of Shitcraft there was a zone where you can play underwater and stuff, nothing new. Perfect World had it's time of glory, now I don't see anything groundbreaking to be happening with it, only measly expansions with "epic" music.
