If you're looking for a game with a Chinese-wuxia
-esque twist, you'll be interested to know that Zu Online
will enter its open beta testing phase
this evening at 8:00 PM EST. Poke around the official website
for the client download
(which can even be acquired via BitTorrent,
if that's your sort of thing!) and for instructions for the actual launch when it comes. All the old alpha accounts are getting wiped just prior to the beginning of the new phase, so the servers will be a level playing field for new players.
If you're not familiar with the game: it's a Kung Fu MMO which features player flight and group-oriented story quests as major selling points. It also has a really neat, stylized cell-shaded
look -- something that when you think about it seems like a really good match for the genre.
Animated, story-driven Wire Fu -- how can you possibly go wrong with that?
