Snail Games has announced that free-to-play martial arts MMORPG Age of Wushu will launch as a digital PC download in North America on 10th April. Following the online launch, a boxed retail version of the game will be released later in April at a price of $20 and, according to a press release, will include “more than $75 of in-game bonuses.”
The US launch of Age of Wushu follows its launch in China, where the game apparently boasts more than ten million registered players.
“Age of Wushu brings an authentic presentation of Chinese martial arts to devoted players, and with its innovative combat, cultivation and offline play, the game creates a unique martial-arts experience,” said Tyler Rawlins, Age of Wushu Content Generation Lead, in the press release.
“The beta has been a great way to connect with the player community and introduce a real world of Wushu to the Western audience,” continued Rawlins. “We received and incorporated an abundance of player feedback during beta and can now announce an official launch date for Age of Wushu.”
The press release went on to make the assurance that players who have already participated in the beta phase of Age of Wushu will retain all guilds, titles and characters upon the game’s official release.
