It is soaking wet out here.
MMOs have always been designed as a way to escape reality. With the new Age of Wushu weather update, players will be able to immerse themselves even further in to the kung-fu MMO from Snail Games.
When the weather update, which will be available first on Chinese servers, is released, servers will feature a day/night cycle, seasons, weather, new cloud effects, snow, and sand.
The weather effects will also add new gameplay elements to Age of Wushu. For example, certain skills and events will change based on the time of day and what's falling from the sky.
Check out the video below for a sneak peek at Age of Wushu's weather effects. The video features a character running through a dark, rainy forest, surrounded by lightning. It's not exactly where I'd want to spend my Friday night, but whatever floats your boat.
Snail Games didn't mention when the Age of Wushu weather update is coming, so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for its release in the coming weeks.
