Perfect World Upcoming Games! - Gamescom 2013
During this year's Gamescom I had the opportunity to talk with Nic van't Schip, product manager at Perfect World and all around good guy. Although Perfect World has yet to officially confirm what's up next on the publisher's plate, Nick and I had an interesting conversation concerning what the future may hold in store for Perfect World's next MMO ambitions.
We now know for sure Perfect World is currently examining whether there is a market in Europe and the U.S. for the following three games: Saint Seiya Online, Swordsman Online, and Legend of the Condor Heroes.
Saint Seiya Online is an MMORPG that's already being published by Perfect World in China. The MMO is based on an old Manga series called Saint Seiya which hasn't been published since 1991.
Swordsman Online happens to be an MMO based on a popular Chinese martial arts novel by Louis Cha. If the MMO looks eerily similar to Age of Wushu and for good reason. The MMO uses an upgraded version of Age of Wushu's engine which has had a noticeable impact on the game's overall fidelity. Whether Swordsman Online represents an upgraded Age of Wushu or an entirely new martial arts MMO remains to be seen.
Finally, Legend of the Condor Heroes represents Perfect World's first self-developed action MMORPG. No Neverwinter doesn't count, Cryptic Studio had a hand in that one. The MMO has yet to be released in China, so unless Perfect World plans on releasing it in various regions simultaneously, chances are we won't see Legend of the Condor Heroes anytime soon.
In conclusion, whether Perfect World opts to release these titles in the West all depends on the market. If you are really interested in playing those games in Europe or United States, now is the time to let Perfect World know. So what game interests you the most?

While they finally seem to wake up a bit by now, almost every game of them has nearly no staff backup at all, their ticket system is malfunctioning since two years in a row now, still awaiting a fix.
Lets face it, "service", "customer care" or "product care" is something, every f2p publisher would have to google, then would need a staff of 2000 instructors to explain then still would not understand.
From what i experience, pay to win is pretty defacto standard with "free" to play as absolutely bad service also is.
PWE currently tries to enforce some frontend adware called "arc", quite like ignite but even more buggy and less "benefiting". New players of any game are forced to install this malware as no arc free download is available for any game anymore.
So whatever quality the games might have some day, its the publisher that scares me off.
After all, all these asia mass crap games are more or less all alike so publisher quality begins to count more and more for me. Publishers wo invest a lot more time in deleting negative feedback and negative feedback givers than actually resolving the issues at hand usually are not a good choice, no matter how great the game may look or be, every piece o´software needs good servicing and maintenance.
Never seen this with PWE at all.
Needless to say, I'm a fan, and would love to see this game turn out to be awesome. The more this series can be enjoyed by fans legally here, the better.
SS online i think is what fans was specting cause the others SS online games are trash. I didnt play it cause i hate tab targeting mode ... but i will play any of these if comes to eu or na, thats for sure
PW you dont deserve to launch any new MMO
ps: is funny how people don't know the difference between PWI (Perfect World International, the game), PWE (Perfect World Entertainment, the western publisher) and PW (Perfect World the chinese developer and publisher (under the name of wan mei))... those are developed by PW, like PWE, FW, BoI, WoI, ESO, Jade Dynasty and some that didn't even came to the west, they have at least 3 different studios to develop games, so it won't necessarily be the same as PWI or WoI... the payment model is decided by PWE, it is mostly fair, only problem is usually their enchant gear boosters that they sell in cash shop, which doesn't break the game at all; and the problems with people's feedback usuaylly happens with games like RH and RaiderZ, because they are made by different developers and not always will have a straight forward communication like they have with Jade Dynasty... and PWI has nothing to do with this xD
they blatantly selling so much overpowered items in cash item shop.
you don't have to agree with me, see for your self. just in case you never play any PWE games.
Second: if like Age of WuShu with action combat, than cant be bad.
Third: again, its action nature begs to check it out. at least.
Please save us and do not publish these games in EU, we dont suck this crap anymore, thank you.
