Snail Games announced Wednesday that its martial arts MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) Age of Wushu is now available in the United States on PC systems.
A new sandbox experience, with graphics and gameplay, Age of Wushu transports players to a martial arts world, set in the Ming Dynasty of ancient China.
Players enroll in one of eight schools as they master various martial arts disciplines and explore ancient China, visiting actual landmarks, including the Wudang Mountain Gate, the Xian Bell Tower, the Gobi Desert and Shaolin Temple, along with the ancient Yanjing (now Beijing) and Jinling (now Nanjing) cities.
“Age of Wushu is the world’s first true wuxia-themed MMORPG and its launch in North America gives western players the chance to truly experience ancient Chinese culture,” says Tyler Rawlins, senior content producer at Snail Games. “It is designed to immerse the player into the lore, explore ancient China and live their martial arts fantasies.”
