In Jade Dynasty: Legacy , players explore the secretive Incense Valley while fighting through the massive multi-staged instance, which is larger than any other dungeon currently available in this game.

"We couldn't be more excited to publish a new chapter in the Jade Dynasty series," said Dean Sakurai, Product Manager, Perfect World Entertainment.

With Jade Dynasty: Legacy we add tremendously to a gaming experience already shared by millions."

Key features include:

•  Two New Classes: Players can now choose between the powerful, fire-wielding Incense Valley Mages and the crippling, melee-astute Forta.

•  New Instance: The Crimson Peaks Voidland is the largest instance in Jade Dynasty, designed for groups of 10-25 players to face its many dangers and claim its secreted rewards.

•  Character Visuals: Character creation has been reworked, providing new visual examples of each faction, new starter fashions and even the ability to preview high-level armor sets.

•  Balance and Enhancement: Several facets of gear and combat have been reworked, from rebalanced factions skills to stronger Ethereal and Celestial gear.
