This trailer for upcoming free to play MMO Age of Wulin is clearly inspired by films like Hero and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It shows off a lot of fast paced martial arts action and graceful movement, including leaping up walls and running deftly across across water, culminating in two characters fighting while standing on the surface of a lake.
Graham was impressed by Age of Wulin when we saw it at Gamescom last month, and it looks like it has some interesting ideas, one of the most unusual being that your character becomes an NPC when you are logged out, helping populate towns with offline players.
Age of Wulin is will be released next year.
Update: The winners have been Chosen! (See what I did there?) If you're one of the lucky winners, you'll be receiving your key shortly. Thanks to everyone who entered!
Need more Asian spice in your MMO palate? Allow me to direct your attention to The Chosen, a free-to-play MMO that's been ported from China to the states by Snail Games. Now, admittedly, I know next to nothing about this game—but I'm a sucker for stories set in the turbulent Three Kingdoms period, and the Diablo-esque action looks to be right up my alley. Want to know how you can be one of the first to play The Chosen with access to the closed beta? Read on to find out how you too can become a true Dynasty warrior.
