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.
