Perfect World Entertainment Inc. today announced the Company will launch a new Free-To-Play MMORPG entitled “Jade Dynasty,” early this summer. “Jade Dynasty” is the English-based version of Zhu Xian, one of China’s most popular Free-To-Play games. Based on the extremely popular internet novel, also titled “Zhu Xian,” “Jade Dynasty” features a unique martial arts style game play wrapped in a huge, evolving game world.
The closed beta program for “Jade Dynasty” will begin on May 26. Gamers are invited to register today at: jd.perfectworld.com to receive exclusive information and early access to the full game world prior to the game’s official release.
“As more players look to Free-To-Play games for innovative new gaming experiences, we are excited to introduce ‘Jade Dynasty’ as we feel its depth of play and extensive feature set will resonate particularly well with both free-to-play gamers and more hardcore fans of the MMO genre,” said Dr. Alan Chen, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment Inc. “‘Jade Dynasty’ exemplifies the exceptional level of quality that gamers have come to expect from Perfect World Entertainment and as a result we expect it will be one of our most successful releases to date.”
“Jade Dynasty” offers players a multitude of features and systems not commonly found in free-to-play MMORPGs. Once inside the crisp, clean game world, players begin their quest to uncover the secrets of immortality as they first assume the role of a simple paladin. Players delve into a system where choices between good and evil begin to shape their game play experience as they obtain different skills, items and ultimately, a story that is unique to every player. Among the many great features, the classless character progression system allows players to focus on the skills you desire to create the ultimate warrior.
Unlike other games that charge monthly subscription fees, “Jade Dynasty” allows gamers complete access to the game world free of charge. Players can trade, earn and spend virtual currency in the game to upgrade a large variety of items in real-time to further enhance and personalize their game play experience. Digital goods that players can obtain in the In-game Shop include: items that can assist with tasks such as consumables that aid player progress, others that reset or temporarily increase stats, expansion of storage capabilities, customizable fashion and equipment, such as mounts that allow faster movement and reduce travel time, social items and gifts that assist communication, and much more.
