How many variations of this story have we encountered already? Heroes of Three Kingdoms is another game developed by Perfect World Entertainment (PWE), the company behind some serious games like Jade Dynasty, Forsaken World, and Battle of the Immortals. This is the developers first foray into a serious game with a heavy historical background, with Heroes loosely based on China's most popular epic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a story that details that civil unrest that resulted in harsh battles in ancient China. The game takes you to the time when the story took place and your role is to take part in the great unification of China. The game's background is promising and PWE has a reputation for making artful characters. Let's see how Heroes of Three Kingdoms fare as a game.
Heroes of Three Kingdoms is one of Perfect World Entertainment's upcoming MMORPGs. The game is based on the historical Warring States Period, stamped into the annuals of history in Romance of the Three Kingdoms, one of China's Four Great Classical Novels. How will this title differentiate itself from the massive number of Asian-themed MMOs out in the market?
