Gala Networks Europe has kicked off the pre-registration phase for Age of Wulin Legend of the Nine Scrolls,
which means players can now sign up for the closed beta test that will
be held in 2012. Why would you want to register so far in advance? If
you sign up by October 1, you'll be entered to win one of five gift packs including a T-shirt (seen above) and an iPhone cover. You'll also be much more likely to get into the beta.

Age of Wulin is an upcoming martial arts MMO set in ancient China. To see the game in action, watch the Gamescom trailer below.

Age of Wulin interview translation hints at user-created martial arts

Curious about Age of Wulin,
the free-to-play martial arts sandpark that's been in the news a bit
lately? We were too, and as such we read with interest the translation
of an interview with Snail Games CEO Shi Hai that recently went down on Weibo.

What's Weibo? It's basically a Chinese Twitter analog, and the interview
touches on game basics including character slots (one per account),
PKing opportunities, and brief blurbs on the game's unique auto-pathing
and user-created martial arts systems.

These last two didn't merit more than a mention in this particular
interview, but rest assured that we'll be bringing you all the latest Age of Wulin news as it happens.

Age of Wulin's Chinese closed beta kicked off this weekend and according to a report at MMO Culture, it's been a "less than enjoyable" experience. The free-to-play fantasy sandbox has an ambitious feature list, and Snail Games
has attracted a lot of players anxious to get their hands on the
upcoming title. Said gamers flooded the beta shard, which occasionally
buckled under the onslaught and served up disconnects, stuck characters,
and more byproducts of the early testing phase.

The good news is that MMO Culture's coverage features a ton of embedded
video, and you can get a look at the title's character creation process,
some beginner areas, and the accessory training interface after the
break.

shu:this is the only fp2 mmo i am aiming to play next year atm.look very good and have a good game system ^^ too bad will take a while to get translated to english

After the China, Europe, localized Russia, Malaysia and Taiwan servers
are confirmed for Snail Game's Age of Wulin, the next region to be
confirmed will be Korea, land of online games. The publisher of choice
is rather surprising, with it being Ntreev Soft. Under its gaming portal
Gametree, the company is more well-known for cute games such as
Trickster Online, Pangya and Alicia. It seems the game will be going
full steam ahead in 2012 for global domination!

In case you do not know, Age of Wulin
is an upcoming martial arts MMO being hosted by gPotato Europe. Don't
ask me if there will be IP blocks, I do not know lol. Along with Perfect
World's Swordsman Online, these are the 2 most anticipated martial arts
MMO this year in China. Developed by China studio, Snail Games, the
Chinese server has yet gone into Open Beta. Just recently, the big boss
of Snail Games, Mr Shi Hai, had a Q&A session with one lucky
reporter. I am just going to summarize the main points said into point
forms for easier viewing. Click here for the official English website! Mr Shi Hai is on the left in the picture below if you are curious.


1. The game has been in development for around 3years, with 2 major changes made in its course so far.

2. Mr Shi Hai said the game is not suitable for those who are already polluted by the typical "garbage MMO".

3. When creating each
character, there will be 8 "novels" for players to choose from. This
actually means there will be 8 different main storyline for players to
choose from. There will be over 10,00 quests, 26 different scenarios
(main storyline scenario, world scenario, clan scenario etc), over 80
big and small martial arts factions, over 10,00 NPCs and around 1000
NPCs involved in the main storyline.


4. In the Chinese version,
players will not be able to give their character funny/weird/rude or
English names. From what I see, the Chinese server actually has a wall
library of words for players to choose from when creating
names. There is an automated name creation function as well.

5. NPCs in the game will not be
stationary at the same spot all the time and will be moving around
(don't expect the bun seller to keep moving around though). Each NPC
will have a different response to player's actions. Of course, players
who chose different "novels" at the beginning will have to meet
different NPCs.


6. Mr Shi Hai continues to talk
about the "Karma" system, or rather the NPC relationship system for
easier understanding. For example, there is this rare skill manual which
shops don't sell. The game's system will record players' actions
towards the NPCs and players' achievements in the martial world. When
the time is right, NPCs will start to give hints and small quests,
eventually leading up to the quest to obtain the manual.

Personally, I think this is an awesome system. While not confirmed,
players might be able to choose and do bad stuff, activating quests to
get the "evil" skill manuals. Hope this will be implemented.

7. There will be no "fixed
strategy" in Age of Wulin. Rewards from quests will differ and given
based on the NPC relationship system. Another example will be some
players walking across a field with no problem, but some others might
fall into a cave traveling through the exact same spots.

8. Age of Wulin is developed
using the in-house Flexi Engine. The game is continuously undergoing
optimization, and while there is currently an active weather changing
system, there is still no day-night feature yet.


9. There will be voice overs for all NPCs in the Chinese server.

10. As for the Wind Steps, the
movement feature where players can travel on water, above tress and
scale walls, players may use this skill to reach every place the eye can
see, including mountain tops, above giant status and more. However,
there is death if players fall from high grounds.


From the screenshot below, there will be 10 skills under Wind Steps. As
mentioned, some will be for walking on water surfaces, some for scaling
tall buildings and some used on the ground. One of it is rather
interesting, which apparently allow players to deflect from walls.
Players may also dive underwater, but there will be a meter bar acting
as an air supply gauge.


11. Much details are crafted
into the environment and structures, so players will not see the same
rock being copy and pasted all over the world (lol @ Final Fantasy XIV).

12. As a MMO without a level
system, players will still obtain "Training Points" from the various
activities they do (quests, interacting with NPCs, talking to other
players etc). I am finding it hard to translate this part, but just be
informed that skills will be upgraded through these points. There will
be no character stats to add as well (seems like equipments will be the
ones adding).


13. Mr Shi Hai declare that
most martial arts MMO are still stuck at the "kill mobs, gain
experience, level up, add stats: vicious cycle, including Perfect
World's Swordsman Online (gasp!). In Age of Wulin, the game will not
focus on all these and introduce something new instead. For example,
there will be 4 basic fighting stance available for PvP and PvE. Each
stance will have its own "counter" from the same group and players who
engage in PvP will be able to observe opponent's stance and predict what
skills he will be using, similar to the scenes in martial arts dramas
and movies. Players will also be able to dodge in time if he guess the
next skill correctly.

14. For combat, there will be the combo system as well, for aerial attacks, chain attacks etc.

15. For the Chinese server, Mr
Shi Hai said that the business model is still being looked into.
Apparently Snail Games is still looking for some sort of new model
instead of just plain cash shop, but at the same time insisting that the
focus will not be on forcing players buying items to aid in their
equipments' upgrades.

16. Next, he talked about the
guild system. Guilds will be able to own their own piece of land,
including setting up a guild base and also placing their guild's name at
the front gate, as seen in the screenshot below. Guild bases will also
provide players with exclusive content and abilities.


Looking at the world map, guilds can also carry out assassinations or
all-out strikes to exterminate another guild or simply takeover it base.
Finer details are not available yet.


17. When players log off, they
are not really "offline". Their characters might be used by other
players as slaves, used as a deliveryman or aiding someone to finish his
quest. Players will hence find themselves in a different location when
they log in again. Of course, this system will have its limitation and
will only be activated once certain requirements are met. This system
will also allow players to have "rare" encounters, which will provide
them good rewards.

18. The game has already been
licensed to various regions, including Taiwan, Europe, Korea, Hong Kong,
Russia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. North America was
not mentioned.

everything look quite well done, but i'm having doubt on the combat system. It seems kinda dull, from one of the combat videos above, I see that your character cannot move while engaging with your enemies. And it look quite turn based, I atk you and you atk me. Trailer kinda mislead everyone, fighting while hopping on water with the "qing gong 輕功'

haha i just saw that news.so rich ^^ snipe posted before me heh



Quick, what's the most you've ever paid for an MMO microtransaction? If
you said $16,000, you might be the guy in the photo above. The Escapist reports that this unnamed gamer dropped a huge chunk of change for a virtual sword exclusive to Age of Wulin, an upcoming free-to-play sandpark MMO from Snail Games.

He wasn't alone in throwing large sums of money at an unreleased game,
as the devs also auctioned off a spear sheath for $2,500 and something
called a Hook of Departure for $1,600.

Age of Wulin is currently undergoing a Chinese beta test, and gPotato has plans to bring the game to European audiences sometime in the future.

Because Perfect World is not a brand new game, and like most new games, a gamer is enticed by a sense of the unknown, i guess it would be more worth it in the eyes of someone who feels like they can splurge like that.

I mean in all honesty, if i for example felt like splurging on something like; some new console games, i am not going to splurge on old Nintendo cartridges now am i?, i going to splurge on Xbox360 games, it's only natural.

I am really abusing that word: "Splurge"

Well my point basically was, if it's not better then an old game, then how's it worth playing, even if it is new

Sure there's the unknown factor etc, but now-days we got youtube to show us whether we like something or not
(yes it's pretty sad that it spoils a lot, but on the other hand you can see that this game just lacks on every front)

I doubt it will be a game I'll play, some features sound ok, but the game looks dated, as Snow pointed out.

The feature that interests me the most in the Elder-scrolls type skill system, the amount of time put into a specific skill reflects the skills power or effectiveness.
