Grab your swords: Swordsman Online Enters Closed Beta
Players who've mastered the art of securing closed beta keys and have procured one for the upcoming martial arts MMORPG Swordsman Online may now enter the MMO's closed beta monastery and take part in its teachings until the closed beta concludes on June 27th.
As with most martial-arts MMORPG's, Swordsman Online is inspired by popular Chinese wuxia novels and features 10 distinct schools of martial arts, each with their own customizable fighting styles and unique weapons. No open beta date has been announced yet.
You can still signup for a chance at a closed beta invite by heading over to the official site now.

Another game that I don't believe belongs to being released in this state / time of technology. Just as poor as age of wushu / wulin.........if not peeking under the covers, just the same old pants rehashed.
Then I learn that Arc has the same spying DRM software that Value has that checks your website activity. Only thing is, this is PWE not Value and no1 with a brain would trust PWE.
At which point I uninstalled Arc, forgot about trying swordsman, sulked and went and played Dragon Age 2.
From all reports, I wasnt missing anything.
I played for 5 hours and followed everything everybody in game said and I still don't know what the hell is going on. All I get from the story is I am a hero. END OF STORY. Graphics are just awful even on max settings and it seems like you never need to open a solid steel door, just walk through it! Another thing is that I chose the only server it would let me, an NA server. In chat all I see is, "Ping teh wing dengg", some kinda Chinese or something. Took me a while to actually find some English speaking peeps.
Last but not least....LOOT. Wheres the loot? I mean sure ESO had minimal loot but loot non the less. In the 5 hours I played only a bowl of noodles dropped.
I felt like I was literally being held by the hand the entire time. I know people say that about themeparks and other games but this is for real. You never have to explore.
Oh and you get these world things, I forgot what their called, but after you run out you can no longer gain xp from enemies until a certain amount of time has passed or you somehow get more world stuff.
All in all it is closed beta and things could change. I hope they do because this game is a mess and I'll gladly go back to Age of Wulin/Wushu, a game I dislike, than this current state of a game.
Damn I was so excited for this too. I really thought, "Duh A kung fu game, it's gotta be golden der der". Damn was I wrong. I should have learned from every non successful martial arts game. And there are no successful martial arts games out. At least worth my time that is
time to invest in a playstation. MMO's are dead.
