Perfect World proves they're not slowing down in releasing MMORPGs.
Having bought Cryptic just last year, Chinese publisher Perfect World is continuing to expand rapidly. In a press release sent out today, the gigantic pub announced their new MMO, Holy King, adding to an already-robust offering of MMORPGs. The game, based on the online novel of the same name, runs on Perfect World's own Echo game engine.
The press release announcing the game was cagey with details, but the game allows player to "devour all things as the progress in the game" and fight from beyond the grave as soul fighters. The concept of still being able to fight after death is pretty cool and will be interesting to see. However, we're not so sure about the Pac-Man element of the game, which apparently allows players to eat damn near anything in the game in order to power up their characters.
Perfect World CEO Mr. Robert Xiao, released possibly the most bland and vague comment to accompany the game:
Our new 3D fantasy MMORPG, 'Holy King,' is another proprietary work that our talented staff created, from its initial design to its research and development phases, with dedication to prioritizing players' needs. We hope the game will provide players with new exciting game content and an enhanced gaming experience.
If you're a fan of the Holy King online novel, you probably know what to expect story-wise. If not, we'll make sure to keep you posted on further developments. In the meantime, plan on another "enhanced gaming experience" from Perfect World.
