Age of Wushu 2’s days are for getting thirsty, but its nights are for assassination

Day, night, whatever.

Development continues on Age of Wushu 2, and the game is going to make you think about the time. Is it late at night in the game world? That’s going to be dangerous for you. Fewer NPCs are active during the night, more hungry beasts will be on the prowl, and perhaps most importantly it’s the perfect time to slip into something dark to stab people to death. That’s not even counting your limited visibility. You would do well to be cautious during the night.

So you’d rather just be active during the day, then? That’s much brighter, yes, but it has its own downside, because the hot sun is beating down on you and making you thirsty. Yes, you’re going to need to keep an eye on your hydration needs, and that’s before you have your usual mid-day snack of a handful of salt. So no matter what time of day it may be, you can rest assured that it has some way of making your in-game life just a little bit more difficult.

The first game was pretty good… although I ended up only playing the first 20 levels or so. Would be curious to see a new-and-improved one.

Well if my thirst is for assassination, then I found the game for me.

Nothing screams martial arts fantasy like having to worry about hydration or heat meters.

I think the largest actual barrier to me playing more AoW has and will always be the immediate need to find food and eat after logging in. Combined with the awful localization and non-existent documentation, this always, always, always ends in me logging out.

So maybe this will be the same with liquids. Hope not.
