Perfect World Entertainment has unleashed its newest game – Swordsman, a martial arts and wuxia-inspired game based on the Chinese novel The Smiling Proud Wanderer. Closed Beta has begun! You can gain access by purchasing a Hero’s Pack, or by signing up on the Swordsman site. As I write this, I’m realizing that I’ve seen one of the tv series based on this novel, and it was pretty interesting – now I’m really curious to try it! Intrigue, romance, martial arts, it’s got a collection of things for an exciting game backdrop!
Closed beta runs from Monday June 16th at 2pm PDT until Friday June 27th at 2pm PDT.
No details have as yet been provided regarding when open beta begins, although anyone who has purchased a Hero Pack will have early access.
