Snail Games has amused us with their upcoming martial arts MMORPG, Age of Wushu for PC. Here at Inside Hotwire 3D, we are big fans of martial arts and this game looks to deliver realistic combat that is just amazingly identical to the fighting styles seen in many Chinese martial arts movies. It is currently the #1 game in China and has more than 10 million registered players worldwide. For those North American gamers who are just tuning in to the Age of Wushu, it has been in development for over five years! The game offers stunning 3D graphics, unique gameplay mechanics and tons of customization. With no classes or levels, players are given tons of freedom unparalleled in today’s MMORPGs.
Age of Wushu features eight different martial art options to choose from, dazzling aerial duels and a sophisticated system of combos and counters. The unique fighting styles are based upon martial arts disciplines such as Shaolin and Wu-Dang. The game is set in the mythical and enchanting world of Jianghu, which brings the Chinese cultural tradition of Wuxia – seen in such blockbuster films as “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Hero”. While Snail Games are relative newcomers to the US market place, Age of Wushu could propel their reputation on the USA map. The timetable for launch has been pushed back to Spring 2013. Snail Games wants to ensure that they are delivering the highest quality, the most engaging ancient Chinese online experience, and the world’s first true Wuxia themed MMORPG.
