FIRST PERFECT WORLD INTERNATIONAL CHARACTER REACHES LEVEL 105 MILESTONE

FOSTER CITY, Calif. - January 12, 2011 Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a wholly owned US subsidiary of Perfect World Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: PWRD), today announced that the 105 level cap in its flagship massive multiplayer online role-playing game, Perfect World International, has been achieved. As a testament to the free-to-play model, the character who reached this milestone did so without the use of real world money, instead opting to trade with other players.

"While reaching level 105 is a milestone for Perfect World International , doing so without spending a dime is a testament to the name free-to-play," said Jonathan Belliss, Director of Marketing for Perfect World Entertainment Inc. "Perfect World Entertainment's games are designed to be truly free-to-play and when compared to subscription-based games, offers players the best entertainment value available on the market today."

Perfect World Entertainment is committed to providing all players with new and unique online gaming experiences on an ongoing basis and recently unveiled details on its latest Perfect World International expansion. Perfect World International: Genesis will offer a plethora of new content for players to enjoy, even after the level cap.
