Out of all of the MMORPGs we’re waiting to come to our neck of the woods from Asian territories, this one is certainly a surprise. Say hello to Swords of Legends Online, an action MMORPG from Chinese developers Wangyuan Shengtang and Aurogon that’s arriving to the Americas and EU this summer via Gameforge.
Known in its home country as Gu Jian Qi Tan Online, this new-to-us MMO is based on Chinese Xianxia mythology that’s spawned a multi-award-winning television series, several movies, novels, and series of games.
“Players will explore an eons-long clash between the forces of light and darkness. Only those chosen by the spirit of the legendary sword buried deep within themselves may unlock the powers necessary to banish the fog of evil, death, and destruction that threaten to consume this tempestuous world.”
In SOLO, players will explore the world of Shezhou, which promises PvP content, dungeons, raids, and the ability to create your own personal home island. The game features six different classes, and combat features skill combos as well as light and heavy attacks that can be chained together. The game is set to arrive sometime this summer and it appears to be buy-to-play, as it can be pre-ordered now in one of three different version. You can take a look at some locations and a bit of combat in the videos after the cut.
