"Fans of action MMOs and the monster hunting subgenre of gaming are in for a one-of-a-kind experience with RaiderZ," said Yoon Im, Senior VP/GM of Game Publishing, Perfect World Entertainment. "With fast non-targeting gameplay and a classless character system, players of RaiderZhave direct control over a character's skills and play style. With challenging PvE and PvP combat, epic boss fights and a comprehensive crafting system, RaiderZ is an amazingly high quality free MMORPG and we can't wait to let gamers in."
In RaiderZ, explore the vivid and surreal land of Rendel in search of behemoths and epic monsters of legend. Find them. Slay them.
Key features include:
• Exotic Real-Time Battles
An exciting, responsive real-time battle system brings players directly into the fight. Evade and block, strike and destroy. Hunting takes strategy, power and skill.
• Too Close for Comfort
Monsters get personal as they grab, smash, maul and eat players alive. Rip monsters apart and use their own weapons and limbs against them in battle or for crafting, lest you be clutched, clawed, thrown and otherwise savaged.
• Know Your Enemy... It Knows You
Gigantic, intelligent bosses keep even the swarthiest groups on their toes. Work together with fellow hunters to discover the weaknesses of raging, mythological beasts and employ team tactics and strategies to permanently take them down.
• Unique Character System
Weapons determine skills in RaiderZ. Choose from over 350 skill combinations to build custom character unlike any other.
• Open World
Track monsters in an open world and explore diverse landscapes. Carefully tread through the deepest, darkest jungles; brave the narrow passes of snow-covered mountains, and be caught by an ever-changing weather system.
• Cutting Edge Graphics
By leveraging the power afforded in NVIDIA graphics and PHYSX interactions, RaiderZ features vibrant visuals and a level of physicality not yet seen in MMOs.
