Shanghai - July 30th, 2014 – At a recent news conference, Snail Games proudly released a statement in cooperation with Microsoft to official announce the upcoming King of Wushu for Xbox One. King of Wushu is the next in the line of Snail’s flagship martial arts series, building on the unique style and gaming experience from Snail’s design studios to create an exciting new 3D MOBA.
The game will follow in the footsteps of internationally renowned martial arts MMO, Age of Wushu, drawing on its popular mix of stylized design and traditional Chinese themes while breaking new ground and reimagining the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre. In keeping with Snail’s own unique style, the game will feature stunning graphics and interesting costumes, as players battle it out in an immersive 3D environment. Mixing elements of MMOs with Third-person Shooter mechanics, King of Wushu will take the battle arena gaming experience to a new level of action and intensity.
King of Wushu is set in the chaotic days following the fall of a great emperor, in a perilous time in need of heroes. The greatest champions of martial arts gather from the far corners of the land to demonstrate their prowess. The arena beckons them on to glory and fame, as they struggle to become the King of Wushu.
King of Wushu builds on the game play of traditional MOBAs, pitting players in 5 on 5 matches across a battle map, with the key objective to defend one’s own base and defeat the opposing team. This style gets a whole new dynamic as players enter King of Wushu’s full 3D world, with action combat systems including dodging, jumping, and attack combos. With this first announcement, Snail has also revealed 6 of the playable classes fans can look forward to:
King of Wushu is in early development, with more news to come in the future.
