While we are not sure how many China companies were over at E3 2019, we were certainly surprised to know that Seasun Games was there showcasing its latest Chinese mobile MMORPG. The company, known as 西山居 in China, is a highly-respected developer in the country and made high-quality fantasy wuxia games for the PC. The mobile MMORPG at E3 2019 had an English name, titled Eastward Legend: The Empyrean, which launched in China this past week published by Tencent Games. As we are still wondering if Seasun Games is aiming to bring the game to the west, we decided to take a quick 2 hours spin. Faithful to the game’s original PC version, Eastward Legend: The Empyrean delivers a vast and immersive MMO experience on the mobile platform. There are 5 different schools, each with 4 playable characters, but 3 of them need to be unlocked via in-game achievements. These “extra” characters are much more powerful, and can be switched any time in-game once unlocked. … [Read more...] about – Classic Chinese wuxia MMORPG debuts on mobile
Back in Febrauary, we first wrote about a new and unique battle royale game from China, Swordsman X. I recently got to try Swordsman X in its Closed Beta 2 phase, and for the record, no kills were managed in my first 2 games, as seen in the footage below. I do admit I suck in PVP games, but the ancient wuxia setting in Swordsman X means I had to give it a try. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, developed by China-based Dream Game Studio and published by Cube Game, here is a quick look at wuxia battle royale Swordsman X. Other than the ancient wuxia setting, the main difference with the western battle royale games is the addition of a MMORPG-like skill system. Picking up weapons might be cool, but players have to find the corresponding weapon manuals to unlock skills. If not, the players can only use normal attacks. The lower level of these manual can usually be found beside the weapons, while higher tiers one (Level 3 and above) are usually scattered across the world. Due to latency issues, … [Read more...] about – Quick look at Closed Beta 2 of wuxia battle royale
A friend of mine informed me the other day about a new wuxia MMORPG currently in Closed Beta called The Legend of Chu Liuxiang that's playable on both the PC and mobile device. Taking a quick glance at the site, I wasn't really interested because I thought it was just another mobile wuxia game. Then my friend told me that I was able to download and play the game on PC using a real standalone client. That piqued my interest, so I went on ahead and tried the game out for fun. I must admit the game looks very shiny like a lightweight version of Moonlight Blade Online. The UI felt really cluttered since the game won't let you switch over to the PC UI until you hit level 30 which is shown in the video below. For some reason, the advanced graphics options were hidden in this game! I maxed out all the settings and waited for the lag fest to begin only to find out there was no FPS lag and the game ran very smooth at 60FPS on my PC! The game offered a handful of playable gender-locked … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games The Legend of Chu Liuxiang Another Wuxia MMORPG Adventure
So all the way back in May of 2017, I made a video titled “The Best Free To Play Anime MMORPGs To Play RIGHT NOW In 2017!”. It has since gone on to gain almost 800,000 views, thousands of comments, and thousands of likes. Over the course of the year my likes and dislikes in terms of MMORPGs have changed quite drastically. I recall listing games like Maplestory, Eden Eternal and Twin Saga as Anime MMORPGs I thoroughly enjoyed, when in reality I believe those games no longer hold any semblance of relevancy. Stix did do a video on upcoming Anime MMORPGs just last month titled “4 Upcoming Anime MMORPGs You Absolutely NEED To Play In 2018 And Beyond!” if you’re interested in a few Anime titles to look forward to as well.
