Snail Games announced King of Wushu for PC and Xbox One at ChinaJoy in Shanghai today.
The martial arts-themed multiplayer online battle arena game, which us currently in “early development,” takes the world of Chinese martial arts online. Developed by the same studio that created Age of Wushu, the CryEngine 3-based game will feature a full 3D environment and mix MMO elements with third-person shooter mechanics.
Here’s the full outline, via Snail Games:
The game is set during the chaotic days following the fall of a great emperor. In this perilous time, the greatest champions of martial arts gather from the far corners of the land to demonstrate their prowess. The arena beckons them to glory and fame, as they struggle to become the King of Wushu.
King of Wushu builds on the gameplay of traditional MOBAs, pitting players in 5-on-5 matches across a battle map, with the objective of defending one’s own base and defeating the opposing team. Additionally, players will get to experience new MOBA dynamics through King of Wushu‘s full 3D world and action combat system, which includes dodging, jumping and attack combos.
