Perfect World Games unveils Perfect New World, a new PC, mobile, and console MMO set to launch globally

Apparently, there’s going to be a lot more Perfect World going on sometime in the near (or distant) future. During a Perfect World Game Strategy press conference, Perfect World Games announced the release of Perfect New World, a new MMORPG based on the Perfect World IP that’s coming to consoles, PC, and mobile internationally.

The announcement was thin on details (and what details were shared were in Chinese, obviously), but according to reports, the mobile title (which is separate from Perfect World Mobile) will feature an open world powered by Unreal Engine 4, while the PC and console version appears to have a similarly open map. Both titles also appear to have a far more active combat style, with what appears to be combos and dodging mechanics in the gameplay trailers that were showcased during the press conference. You can get a look at those trailers below.

Their first choice of course was Perfect World of Warcraft.

Perfect World had an Asian feel to most of the world and the characters, this looks like a generic Asian MMO with a Western art direction.

The thing that made Perfect World big back in the day is that it had good graphics and very thorough character creation and it was F2P when WoW was at its peak and many poor kids who could not afford WoW played it.

But this one doesn’t look like it’s standing out at all from what MMOs we currently have so I’m not sure how it’s going to create a name and a place for itself. I will probably give it a try when it launches, but I’m skeptic that it will be anything out of the ordinary.

Perfect New World, hmm I propose we call it P 2 W since it’s the second Perfect World game.

Well why would anyone play New World when they could play Perfect New World??

That’s…kinda an awful name. Like, it’s boring as hell and kinda confusing even. I can appreciate the devotion to a brand like that but…sometimes it’s better to think/step outside the box a bit.

The thing that just pushes me from products like this is knowing that the entire purpose of these is to weasel as much money from customers as possible. Not to make a good game, or a fun game… but to make a product that lures in customers like a siren, hooking them with proven psychological elements that make them toss money at the screen to obtain whatever carrot on a stick they dangle in front of them. These types of games are the carnival games at an amusement park. Not the actual rides you went there for.

The only thing that improves with each new iteration of these games, are the visuals. The have too improve, because that the first “hook” that draws in the customers. While every company that makes games hopes to earn a profit from it, there is a huge difference when it comes to HOW they plan to use the game to make said profit. Hint: They arent trying to do it by making a fun, quality, lasting game that makes customers say “Im enjoying this, ill support the company with my wallet”.

I mean…it’s PW. The game was P2W to it’s core. Nothing changes.

Yes, this really shouldn’t surprise anyone, Perfect World came out in 2005 and has been pay to win from day one. I wouldn’t expect PWE to be any different with this one.

And in 5 more years they will release “Perfect Brand New World”. Way to go in lacking inspiration for finding new names. Even Perfect World 2 would had been better.

I’m just over here scratching my head at what you do in a game that’s set in a perfect world. Must be a pretty low stakes mmorpg

Perfect World International (still running) is the Western version of Perfect World 2.

In other news, Amazon prepares to slap Perfect World Games with its wallet.

except that first mention of this title predates the amazon mmo by several years

Except copyright doesn’t cover names, trademark does. Trademarks need to be registered and –surprise — Amazon has a trademark on ‘New World’. Given these are both MMOs, Amazon’s trademark will certainly come into play and I’d be very surprised if PW doesn’t quickly change the English name of their game, as it’s going to be easy for Amazon to prove it will cause confusion and dilution of their trademark.

PW may well just roll over if Amazon comes knocking, but they’d have a case for invalidation of the mark if, for some reason, they decided they wanted a lengthy and expensive court battle to keep that name.

The smart thing would be for Amazon to realize that there won’t really be much confusion that amounts to any lost dollars on their part and just come to an agreement if PW makes any kind of issue out of it.
