Heard about this when I got home from work earlier. Definitely excited for it, I played the shit out of the chinese server but quit because of the lag. Definitely much much more superior to anything Age of Booboo ever was.
So, is this a sandpark like Wushu or a themepark version of it?
Taken from the wikia:
Most of the time, the player will follow the main quest line to progress in the game. The main quests are the most efficient way for players to level. There are also some side quests that supplements the stroy a little bit.
At higher levels, players can be engaged in more player interactivities, such as Guild, Brotherhood, or PvP arena.
Additionally, there is a unique game process called "Path of a Swordsman", which consists of a series of levels. These levels are mainly PvE instances, with some focusing on combat, some focusing on action-adventure, some focusing on storytelling, and the rest on puzzle-solving. This feature adds to the ordinary open-world quest line flow.
