Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter and RaiderZ to Headline Company Effort
(Redwood City, CA) March 30, 2012 -- Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a wholly owned US subsidiary of Perfect World Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: PWRD) today announced its lineup of games at PAX East, the consumer video game expo taking place between April 6 and April 8, 2012.
At the Perfect World PAX East booth (#736 in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center), the free-to-play online games publisher will be showing two marquee titles: RaiderZ, the highly anticipated colossal monster hunting MMORPG, and Neverwinter, the newest fantasy action MMORPG based on the immensely popular Dungeons & Dragons franchise.
During the show, attendees may experience RaiderZ's non-targeting, monster grappling systems in and around the Kingdom of Rendal and enjoy the first ever hands-on playable version of Neverwinter. By playing the custom-built demos, players may collect exclusive real-world prizes that match randomized loot drops found in-game. Throughout the expo, players will also have a chance to enter raffles held twice daily. The raffles feature a wide assortment of prizes, including NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, computer, and gaming equipment from Logitech and Alienware.
Attendees can also check out Blacklight: Retribution, the award-winning free-to-play first-person shooter, in a LAN tournament sponsored by Intel at its booth (B1 - PC Room). Participants will put their combat readiness skills to the test in a war for bragging rights. Players can also hang out in the after-hours VIP area and experience the game in free play style after regular expo hours.
