Age of Wushu is a free to play Fantasy MMORPG loosely based on the Ming Dynasty Period; Age of Wushu draws heavy inspiration from the “Wuxia” genre of Chinese fiction: while you’re not going to be fighting off dragons or demons, you will find yourself running across water, scaling buildings, and even exercising a bit of limited flight. See, that’s the first area in which Age of Wushu distinguishes itself: the combat system.
In order to fully understand combat, you’ll first need to understand the game’s class system; or rather, it’s lack of one. Age of Wushu tosses the idea of rigid, pre-set roles and classes out the window. Instead, each character can join one of the game’s eight “Schools.” Each school has its own martial style and skill-set, and laws by which each player needs to abide: these laws can include profession, inventory, and alcohol intake, among other things. Coupled with this, each school has a special “internal skill” which impacts your character’s personal stats and abilities. The best part about this system is that you’re not locked into any particular school.
The game is available to play for free and will definitely become one of our favorite MMORPGs in 2013!
