exception. The developers at Zyon Games have opened their doors and
revealed their latest localization project, Secret Online, a
Chinese-made MMORPG that puts the characters smack in the middle of
mythological China. With an active Chinese player base of 10 million
users, Zyon Game's hopes to recreate that success in North American as
well, and the game is set to release in 2008. Ten Ton Hammer has

Zyon Games announced their North American website launch of Secret Online today. The website can be found at http://secret.zyongames.com and is the first official English translation of the immensely popular free-to-play Chinese MMORPG dubbed Secret Online. Gamer fans will find a great deal of English content on the site, including such goodies as videos, screen shots, and game play guides.
Secret Online is one of the most anticipated Internet games for North American audiences in 2008. With an active Chinese player base over 10 million strong, Zyon Game's efforts to create content for native English speakers will expand the game's already successful market considerably.
As a free-to-play massive multi-player online adventure game, Secret Online transports users into the dynamic world of ancient Chinese mythology. Featuring beautifully rendered and customizable avatars, the game offers 200 static maps as well as an infinite quest generator spanning 20 unique environmental maps. Secret Online also introduces new play features for MMO gamers, such as a persistent realm history, wherein players permanently affect the time line and events of a particular server – and thus impact the experiences and storyline of other gamers in the same realm.
Fans who register an account on the site's forum will be given priority when Zyon Games selects beta testers for the game in May. The forum allows players to share information and tips on a variety of game-related topics with each other. The forum can be found at http://www.zyongames.com/forum/
“The website is a great place for gamers to see what Secret Online is all about,” Said Steven C. Wade, Founder and CEO of Zyon Games. “We will be updating the website with new content and will soon be launching the game itself. So I encourage players to check back frequently.”
