Dublin, Ireland – 10th July, 2013 – WEBZEN , the pioneering free-to-play games developer and publisher, is pleased to announce that its highly anticipated Free-to-Play martial arts MMORPG, Age of Wulin, will go into Open Beta on Thursday 18th July 2013!
Age of Wulin Open Beta will launch with three servers, all initially in English, with one dedicated to each of the French-speaking and German-speaking communities, and the third server open to all as an international European server. Localized clients for the French and German language services will be provided at a future time, to be confirmed. Further, there will be no resets (wipes) once we’ve entered Open Beta.
“We’re pleased to announce the upcoming Open Beta of Age of Wulin in English, and we’ll follow with updates to the clients for our French-speaking and German-speaking community once their localization is complete,” said Alexis Guariguata, Producer of the game. “We can’t wait for our fans to begin character development, Kung Fu mastery and the contest for renown, economic dominance and the game’s territories for real!”
The current Closed Beta will finish on Friday 12th July prior to the servers being reset (wiped) for the final time and additional preparations for the Open Beta. The servers will open for a brief head start for the Closed Beta testers on Wednesday 17th before starting Open Beta the day after on the 18th. Closed Beta testers will be rewarded with a unique vanity outfit and title.
Age of Wulin is an epic free to play MMORPG set in Imperial China, which revolves around the lore and practice of Chinese martial arts within the Wuxia universe. Gamers can join eight different factions (martial arts schools), each with their own unique style of combat, and experience deep character development.
Players will not be bound by a traditional levelling system, instead they will have the freedom to choose how they want to master their character by acquiring skills through school quests, and spying/stealing them from other characters or schools. Freedom of choice is a theme that runs throughout Age of Wulin as players can choose from a wide array of professions and align themselves with good or evil through their actions. The choices made will ultimately determine many different outcomes and provide for a personalized story, which is unique for every player.
Age of Wulin will offer a unique MMORPG experience in a gigantic open world, including mass-scale PvP and PvE features such as guild warfare and battles for up to 1,300 players simultaneously.
