Age of Wulin

Age of Wulin is getting its fourth expansion on April 28th, according to a new Webzen press release. If you’re scratching your head in confusion, recall that Webzen publishes the free-to-play martial arts MMO in Europe under the Age of Wulin moniker while Snail Games publishes the same title in the Americas but calls it Age of Wushu.

At any rate, Chapter 5: Heaven’s Ascent is coming to Europe at the end of this month. Chapter 5 includes the Ladder to Heavens Arena tournament and new class-06 equipment, Webzen says.

The arena is a daily PvP competition that rewards winners with skill books, materials, and ancient manuals. The new gear requires players to complete a new stage of the Age of Wulin Record called “Before the Final Battle,” after which they’ll be able to craft equipment upgrades.

Correct, Wulin and Wushu are under separate publishers and do certain things different. The core game is still the same, but things like the cash shop or minor events (like login gifts or small leveling bonuses) are handled in different ways. IMO Wushu has the advantage on (non-player-driven) ingame events, while Wulin keeps the cash shop more fair (for example, while originally CS outfits were “rental” only, gPotato (which later merged fully into Webzen) listened to player feedback and got Snail China [the original developer of the game] to implement permanent versions).

So the distinction between the names means anything said about Wulin may not necessarily apply to Wushu? I feel like I see more updates on Massively about Wulin. This doesn’t mean the changes are coming to Wushu, right?

Zuleyus You’re right, sorry. The PR was a little confusing but that was ultimately my brain fart which has now been fixed.

“At any rate, Chapter 4: Betrayal & Forgiveness is coming to Europe
at the end of this month, with Chapter 5: Heaven’s Ascent in progress as
well.”
Umm, not sure if this was wrong in the press release or someone misread it, but Chapter 4 B&T has been live for almost a month already. The April 28th release will be Chapter 5 HA.
