If there just wasn’t enough Fu in Age of Wushu’s Kung Fu for you, perhaps Snail Game’s newly revealed martial arts MOBA, King of Wushu, will satisfy your cravings for acrobatic fights. Set to be released on both PC and Xbox One, King of Wushu will follow in the path of games like SMITE or Super Monday Night Combat, by moving the action into third-person.




Currently. little is known about the MOBA, outside of the fact that it’s being developed by the same studio as Age of Wushu using CryEngine 3. However, we do know King of Wushu is designed for traditional 5 vs. 5 matches, with both sides defending and attacking each other’s bases. Combat is said to be action oriented, with the ability for players to dodge, jump and perform attack combos.

A new trailer (featured above) lays the groundwork for the game, showcasing six of King of Wushu’s playable heroes, most of which are male. A tiny bit of gameplay can be seen towards the end, with several characters seen performing flashy mid-air combos. If their’s one thing we had to critique, it would be the size of the combat text. It simply covers too much of the screen.

Currently, only a Chinese teaser site exists for King of Wushu, and Snail Games has yet to announce when the MOBA will be released in the West.

Are you interested in a third-person martial arts MOBA?

    You developers and publishers of f2p games might think this old-chinese-theme is the new fantasy theme, but you are so freaking wrong, just stop these games, one sucks more than the other!

    I can’t see anything from the over intruding numbers everywhere and the over the top special effects.

    It is clear that these developers don’t even play MOBAs.

    Well i hope the game is nothing like Super Monday Night Combat, ahah.
    But it looks interesting. Smite looks pretty cool, i might have to download it tonight and try it out.

    meh, don’t think it will be able to compete with smite in the least. However, I’m really excited for that other third person moba that’s coming out by the designer of guild wars 2. The visuals remind me somewhat of Zelda Wind Waker and that’s really cool.

    10/10 We LOVE Moba games, we want more Moba games. It doesn’t matter if they’re great, average, or outright terrible, if it’s a Moba game we want more of them!

    In fact, they should make founders packs for all these Moba games and price them $40-$100 each.

      10/10 We LOVE overweight men, we want more overweight men. It doesn’t matter if they’re great, average or outright terrible, if it’s a overweight man we want more of them!

      In fact, they should make me perform fellatio at truck stops for all these overweight men and price it at $40-$100 each.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
