Newly announced MMO Eternal Magic has something ‘for the girls’

Game developer Duoyi and distributor 101XP announced today that they’re developing a free-to-play MMORPG that sounds far too good to be true. Eternal Magic, according to the website, contains epic 80-player battles, a MOBA mode, PvP, and player housing. 101XP calls it a “killer mix for an incredible adventure.”

Starting out, the classes fit a typical MMORPG skill-set. We have a Knight, a Gunslinger, a Spellblade, a Priest, a Mage, and an Assassin. Each class can be adjusted to playstyle with five different categories of action-style combat. The videos for the game don’t really explain the combat well, nor do they show the UI, but the press release talks about combo enhancement and cooldown decrease. This usually indicates action combat similar to many of Lineage-esque MMOs out there.

The social aspects of the game have — let’s say — an interesting twist. The game features player housing that players can decorate how they like. Of course, there are decorations for parties and weddings, including all the outfits players will need. And that’s not all:

“Last but not the least, a small bonus for the girls. Every shield maiden can download a photo and take part in the beauty contest. Other players will make gifts and give attention to their favorite ones. The statue of the most popular girl will be installed in the capital city.”

A closed beta test will begin soon, and players are welcome to apply on the official website. Those selected will receive a free Apprentice Pack when the open beta starts later this year. But if players want to be certain to join the CBT, then purchasing an early-access pack will guarantee an invite as well as three-days access to the game before anyone else. These packs along with everything else you’d want to know about the game are, of course, already available on the official Eternal Magic website.

Good luck getting that statue!

I swear this is the same engine and a lot of the same assets/animations we’ve been seeing in low budget import F2P MMO’s for well over a decade at this point.

Ugh, right? I’ll pass just on the fact it’s an import MMO alone. Tired of these grabs.

“I need someone with an Eastern European accent to do the voiceover for my new trailer!”
“My flatmate is from Arstotzka and needs some work!”
“What’s he like?”
“Oh, he smokes a lot of weed and so he sometimes dozes off in the middle of sentences but he’s a good guy and he’s cheap!”
“Then he’s hired!”

I mean, at least it distracts from how the game itself is probably garbage and isn’t worth playing; they’ll get a certain number of people who pick it up just to be contrary.

Still wow though. It’s got ambition if nothing else. They’re offering us the ability to gamble for microtransactions so we can be competitive in PVP, AND let people throw money away for a false sense of beauty in a video game for a pretend avatar. (’cause you know there will be cosmetics available)

Yikes. What is this, the 60s? Staying clear of this cringe-inducing mess.

Beauty contest? I’m glad I’m not the only one that wanted to vomit after seeing that. Way to go continuing fuel that fire of men(#allmen) and especially gaming men are creepy perverts. Stay classy Duoyi and distributor 101XP

Seriously, though, stop basing events/prizes on gender and/or attractiveness. Never leads anywhere good.

Couldn’t agree more. Why is it always about alienating either males or females? And the next part that made me want to vomit is the part about “girls”. So, what about women? Are participants locked out because they are a) not female and b) not young enough?

This game originally came out in 2016, it’s not new in any way. I played on the chinese servers for a time, it’s just another cash grab. Graphics are outdated, playing is automated, the only thing sort of interesting was the pvp – but it’s all the same gameplay in the end.

Maybe they’re trying to attract lesbians?

… What the hell. That seems like it is more for the creeps than the girls. This is so cringeworthy.

You don’t think it’s for the girls? But we get to dress up in skimpy sexy outfits and have random guys judge our looks! It’s so for the girls! *cough*

They took an outdated beauty pageant concept, put it in a game world full of perverts and creeps. Not only that but most of the girls playing these games are younger, so it’s young girls dressing up in sexy outfits. Yeah, so “for the girls”.

The fact that it’s female only is worse than if they had a male and female version. It’s absolutely for the creeps.

lol… that narrator first off. Everything else after that made me chuckle as well.
