Perfect World Entertainment has announced their upcoming free-to-play game entitled Swordsman, which is based on the popular novel series by Louis Cha aka Jin Yong.
In this adaptation, players will explore the “grand martial arts world” as they hone their fighting skills as one of ten distinctive classes during the Ming Dynasty.
Perfect World’s General Manager of Publisher, Andrew Brown, discussed why they wanted to bring this material to the West.
Bringing Swordsman to a Western audience is something we’ve wanted to do all along. With its rich story and engaging gameplay, Swordsman is a cultivation of our previous and successful titles we’ve brought over from our parent company Perfect World Inc.
While an official release date has yet to be announced, registration for the upcoming closed beta is open now.
