Our flagship title, Perfect
has come a long way in just
a few short months. The English- based, international version of Perfect World II
now one of the most popular 3D MMORPGs in more than 14 countries
worldwide. Since its launch in September 2008, our total users has
exceeded 1,000,000 players and in less than five months we increased
our original two servers to a total of five, which are currently filled
to the brim.
has a large range of fun and in-depth gameplay systems not normally
found in other MMOs— from the moment you begin for the first
time, all the way to the level cap. For starters, PWI has an in-depth
character customization system, similar to the level of customization
found in AAA console titles. All aspects of the face and body- eyes,
cheekbones, lips, torso and more - can be adjusted for the six
different races to make the perfect character for every player.
In line with deep character customization, players can also customize
their gear. With PWI’s dual layer equipment system, players
can keep their stat boosting armor, while layering their fashion items
over their normal equipment. This way, no one needs to sacrifice looks
for practicality, and it also prevents all the end-game players from
looking like clones of one another like in many other MMORPGs.
In terms of end-game content, a major draw for Perfect World International
is the Territory Wars. The world of PWI is split into 44 territories,
which are then separated by tiers. Guilds battle for ownership of these
territories, and those who conquer a territory receive taxes each week
as long as they maintain ownership of that territory. This can put a
lot of gold in your pockets fast. These battles take place weekly and
can support up to 80 vs. 80 players resulting in truly epic battles.
Just over six months after the launch of PWI, we have already reached
our second expansion, “The Age of Spirits.” This
expansion will launch the Genie system that will grant players a
spiritual helper, similar to a pet but not meant for direct combat.
Instead it will strengthen players by filling in aspects that they lack
or further improving the existing character strengths.
As PWI continues to grow, we will always continue to add and refine our
gameplay. The Genie system is just one way we’re providing
more features to keep gameplay fresh and exciting. Next week, stay
tuned for a closer look at Genie basics.
