OVERVIEW

Age of Wushu is a free-to-play martial arts MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) set in a charmingly realistic representation of medieval China, with 27 regions representing all geographical areas of the country, with an amazing 130 km² of open world to explore, and that doesn’t even include instanced areas – all presented with stunning graphics and available to enjoy soon in English, French, and German. Many thousands of quests, vast and diverse regions to explore, and 20 challenging instances make Age of Wushu one of the most expansive and ambitious free-to-play MMORPGs to date.

You will not find elves, dwarves, strange monsters and other fantasy creatures here. Great care has been taken to create a medieval martial arts world that is so real, you can almost taste it. Yes, the kung-fu skills you can master are amazing and jaw-dropping – you can learn to glide through the air, run up walls, and across water – but no weird monster or magic being will cross your path and disturb the image of a perfectly crafted, realistic online world, just as it existed in China centuries ago.

The Age of Wushu RPG experience is an adventure like no other. There are no classes or levels, you hone your skills in various ways and can easily become immersed in the breath-taking living game environment: Over 20,000 NPCs inhabit the detail-rich landscapes, cities and villages, but they don’t just stand around – they live their own lives, have their own personalities and react to your actions in sometimes surprising ways.

COLLECTION OF GUIDES




8 Schools of Wushu




Shaolin: Anyone who knows anything about martial arts should hold Shaolin as among the highest forms of enlightened martial arts. Founded by a traveling Buddhist teacher and Dhyana Master on the legendary lotus flower shaped Mount Song, Shaolin has always sought to perfect their art form in order to maintain righteousness in the land. Those seeking to maintain order without the corrupt influence of magistrates or businessmen should look no further than the Shaolin School.

Master Xuanhuai is the man to see. Seek him out to learn the ways of the Dharma Stick, Buddha Palm, and multiple pressure point strikes designed to separate tendons and render opponents helpless but not fatally wounded.





Wudang: Those seeking an enlightened path in the southern kingdoms may be able to rival the soundness of mind that even Shaolin offers. The Wudang school was founded on Taoist principles and believe that through intense Taichi training, they can counter hardness with softness. Students of Wudang are not only training in martial arts but also agriculture, medicine, and other academic pursuits.

Those seeking to find Dao should look to Zhang Sanfeng, an ancient martial artist famed to have fought off the Mongolian hordes as a youth. He can teach you to channel your inner chi to unleash destructive attacks by channeling it into your fist... or even your chi blade.





Emei: This school stands as an all-female martial arts school hidden away in an unknown forest location, separated from the trials and cares of the outside world. Here Abbess Juechen trains young women to flow in combat like a river to unleash hidden needle attacks and feminine swordplay to overcome larger physically strong foes with finesse and grace.

If you are a female seeking to uphold justice and stand as one of the greatest swordwoman of all time, Juechen will take you under her wing. She holds strong ties with both Wudang and Shaolin as she stood side by side with their leaders during the Mongol invasion. The style taught here is diverse, offering hidden needle projectiles, swordsmanship, and devastating counter-strikes.





Beggars' Sect: Despite the negative connotation and shoddy dress, the Beggars' Sect is one of the most righteous and free schools of martial arts. By opening their doors to not only the poor but also military officers, scholars, and anyone who holds justice in their heart, they have diversified their martial arts style while infiltrating every level of society. If you are in need of accessing hidden information or controlling political affairs from behind the scenes, the Beggars' Sect is the place to be.

Despite their carefree and wide range of membership, Xiao Tianfang maintains order and structure throughout the ranks with his Dog Beating Staff, made from bamboo and representing the strength and sway that the school reflects. Their martial arts range from the fight ending finishing move "Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palms" to the defensive and diverse Dog Beating Staff and Yuyang Kung Fu.





Tangmen: There's two spicy art forms that come out of Sichuan province. One is their world famous hot pots that use spices capable of rendering the tongue numb. The other is the hidden sect of Martial Arts ran by the Tangmen family from their secluded castle. It is said that Tangmen rarely becomes involved with the affairs of Jianghu. However it may just be that the recent increase in political poisonings may be Tangmen working in the shadows.

Tang Tianxing is the current head of the family and the man you will need to see to learn the hidden poison needle arts of the Tang family. They can unleash hidden needles from scrolls and even make it rain needles on their hapless foes from 64 different directions using the master art of "Storm Needle."





Scholars: One of the newest of the eight schools, Xiao Bieqing founded the Scholars Sect as a means of cultivating the mind in the arts of music, chess, calligraphy, and painting. From intense internal training in these art forms, the advanced members of the school can even bend the wavelength of music to inflict internal damage on their enemies without ever spilling a drop of blood, ensuring assassinations with no proof of murder.

When meeting Xiao Beiqing for the first time, it would be wise to mention your disgust for government politics and the current power plays happening in the world. He may come off as haughty and arrogant but once you're among the ranks your sense of enlightenment may do the same to you. As a skilled member of the Scholars, a lute is all you will need to unleash the full force of the Anran Melody, Phoenix Sky, Mingyu Kung Fu, and Bagua Array.





Royal Guards: The Ming Dynasty established an elite intelligence agency known as the Royal Guards in order to supervise the court and report directly to the Emperor on major happenings in his lands. While the intentions were initially good, Huangfu Yao, a rumored follower of the ancient "Evil Blade Master," corrupted the sect with Evil Kung Fu. Now he uses the guards as his own personal tool of destruction, cutting down anyone who opposes him and trusting no one.

The Royal Guards is a great place to join if morality has no implications on you and you seek nothing but power and position. They offer the diverse teachings of Tianmo and Xiuluo Kung Fu as well as the Shiyue Liuhe Array.




Wanderer's Valley:
Established by an unpredictable and temperamental fortune teller, Wanderer's Valley carries no official political power or prestige in Jianghu. Instead they seek merely to master the martial arts most practical for winning combat, no matter if others call them out as underhanded or sly for their style. It's difficult to trace where their arts originate from, but everything from poisoned blades to insects to traps are all canon among their followers.

Shan Tianming is the current secretive leader of the sect. He will gladly teach any of the Duoming sword and Blissful Fist, so long as you agree to join his hidden agendas.
INFORMATION ABOUT FEATURES



No Classes

Jumping out of the traditional “warrior, mage and priest” class system and creatively bringing forth a classless concept, the game reconstructs a complex and variable martial-arts society and breaks through the traditional way that reflects characters' strength through levels.


Intellectual DIY Online Society

Players are not only martial-arts learners, but also a part of the game society with different social statuses. Such a social system makes the game world extremely vast and colorful. Even though players don't know martial arts, they can live happily until death and lead a unique knight-errant life in the game. Their characters can keep growing up no matter they are online or offline.


Random Events


Various martial-arts skills that can change one's life are no longer confined to one faction or one weapon, but not all players are qualified to learn them. Players need a certain amount of good luck to trigger random events through the interaction with NPCs and the choice of branch storylines. The offline function also ensures more stories and diversified random events.


True Martial-arts Community

  • No classes: All in-game skills can be learnt.

  • Game Balance: Based on skills instead of classes.

  • Win or Loss: Depends on skill proficiency rather than numerical values and skills. Therefore, the game has some characteristics of controllable fighting games.

  • Players live in a community, not simply log into and out of the game. With the realization of the network structure, random events can be triggered, and enough NPC AI skills and rich life content are needed.

  • Players enjoy enough freedom in terms of growth, combat and reputation. The immersive storyline leads to multiple development directions. Combats should be carried out in a 3D environment by use of more skills like dodge. Besides, players should be free to create their factions and hold martial-arts championships. Multi-events work in concert with multiple community statuses.



Interaction

About the marriage system, in Age of Wulin, you can even marry with NPCs, but not all of them. About how many NPCs will be available, the developer hasn't decided yet. But there is an interesting, and perhaps controversial topic about the marriage, that is should those who choose Shaolin(the faction of monk) be able to get marry? The developer hasn't given an answer yet...

There will be mini games in Age of Wulin that allow you to interact with NPCs, for example, playing chess.

The game will have housing system. For individuals, they can have their own houses and for guilds, they are able to build guild houses after occupying a sacred mountain (there will be 8 mountains in the game that can be captured).


Combat

Each martial-arts skill has its unique actions and will produce special effects so as to enhance the striking feeling and approach the level of action games. Providing traditional controls, the game is easy to pick up and allows players to experience vivid and gorgeous martial-arts effects.

For PvP, first there won't be physical levels but the skills and players' kung fu will have different levels. And then you can expect to have free PvP but will get punish if you kill too many "low level" players. Except for 1 vs. 1 PvP, there will be faction vs. faction, guild vs. guild, and kung fu tournament. Your skill level and the kung fu you learn decide your fate in PvP but good control and luck are also important since block and dodge are available in the game.

t's possible to take your opponent down by one shot (something like critical attack). There are over one thousand different kinds of kung fu in the game, and theoretically, you are able to learn all of them.


True 3D

Based on the true 3D technology, things can be destroyed in the game, such as towers, pavilions, trees, stones, etc.


Life skills

11 life skills or subclasses have been announced: Miner, Woodsman, Hunter, Fisherman, Farmer, Blacksmith, Goldsmith, Tailor, Apothecary, Poison Expert, and Chef.

Blacksmith will be one of the most welcome professions in the game. Since many of the top class weapons can be made by blacksmith. But don't expect easy money from making weapons because you have to buy materials from the others and you have to know the economy well.

As an apothecary, you are an expert of herb and fungus. You travel across the world to collect herb and have the opportunity to get rare species when crafting.

A hunter will require more hard works. You need not only courage, but also combat skills for you have to fight some dangerous beasts. You can produce leather and meat as a hunter.

Being a farmer, you will be really busy. You have to keep an eye on your farm, or there will be someone comes to "visit" your farm.

Woodsman and fisherman will provide you useful materials, too, and of course you have the opportunity to get rare items, just like the other professions.


Sub-profession

Sub-profession is just one of the parts that consist of the spare time in the game. In Age of Wushu, there is a very special system that will grant you "free lunch". Under this system, everyone has an opportunity to get an ultimate kung fu scroll that changes you from nobody to kung fu master. Of course the "free launch" requires luck, but more important, it requires a good perception. If you are careful enough you will find the clue. For example, an ordinary NPC, even a beggar on the street could be a retired kung fu master and all you need to do is talk to him and he may tell you a place, perhaps a cave, where he hides the scroll. This is the developer's purpose, they want to make miracle happens.


Traveling

Except for horses and boats there is a very special way to travel, the floating kung fu - a kind of famous kungfu that allow you to glide on the water and dash on the roof top quickly.

As to the mount, the developer tries to introduce all of the mounts that appear in the classic kungfu novels. Mounts won't be available in battle.

About the auto navigation, the game will apply a half-auto navigation system that won't disappoint casual gamers.
