The free-to-play martial arts MMO can now be played by anyone worldwide.
Why did Snail Games decide to mark the launch of their international server in London, you ask? It’s all part of their drive to get the Chinese combat discipline, Wushu, into the Olympic Games.
Who knows whether they’ll succeed, but Snail Games’ president Jeanette Zhou was in attendance to mark the international server’s launch, as was one of Age of Wushu’s lead designers who sported a rather fetching salmon-pink suit.
Unfortunately there isn’t an English language option in Age of Wushu instead, all the in-game text is in Mandarin. As a result this launch isn’t really a test about whether this experience set during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) can appeal to Western audiences. It’s more of a welcome to Mandarin-speakers from around the globe to get involved with an assuredly different and beautiful online experience.
Details on how to jump onto the international server are handily provided here.
If like us you aren’t well-versed in Chinese linguistics we suggest you wait until the European version of Age of Wushu, confusingly titled Age of Wulin, launches later this year care of the free-to-play MMORPG provider gPotato.
We have a feeling it’ll be worth the wait…
