LOS ANGELES - January 6, 2012

Snail Games USA today unveiled their colossal upcoming MMORPG, Age of Wushu. Representing more than 2000 years of Wuxia tradition, Age of Wushu thrusts players into a personal adventure, in a world where classes and levels no longer matter and where every action is judged harshly by the world around you. Players will learn that nothing is as it seems when the official International Test for Age of Wushu launches soon. Age of Wushu will be published in the UK market under the title Age of Wulin.

“We are ecstatic to finally be able to announce this title in the USA. After many years of research and development, Age of Wushu has been the number one anticipated online game in China for over two years now and we hope to garner the same excitement in the States,” said Shi Hai, CEO and founder of Snail Games.

Prepare to embark on a journey unlike none other, literally. After choosing one of six unique story lines, players become the protagonists of their own individual stories in Age of Wushu. Every action bears a consequence and every NPC has his or her own opinions about each player. Players will also be in control of where and how to hone their skills in Wushu. Players can choose one of eight martial arts schools to train, or invade another school to steal knowledge not offered at their current alma mater. Training can even take place offline by choosing one of 30 offline activities to keep a character progressing in-game as an NPC.

Without the traditional MMO crutch of levels and classes, it is impossible to predict the outcome of a fight. Yes, that means that beggar on the street can be a traveling Grand Master! With over 5,000 equipment upgrades, 32 guild sites, 17 professions and a range of amazing aerial combat, Age of Wushu will puts each player in control of their experience.
