RUSTY HEARTS TO LAUNCH IN EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA CONCURRENTLY ON SEPTEMBER 13

RUSTY HEARTS TO LAUNCH IN EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA CONCURRENTLY ON SEPTEMBER 13
 
September 6, 2011 – Foster City, Calif. and AMSTERDAM, Netherlands– Perfect World Entertainment Inc. and Perfect World Europe B.V., wholly owned US subsidiaries of Perfect World Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: PWRD), today proudly announced that their much anticipated free-to-play hack and slash dungeon-crawling MORPG, Rusty Hearts, will be launching into open beta concurrently for North American and European players on September 13, 2011.

“Since acquiring the license to operate Rusty Hearts earlier this year, it’s been our great pleasure working with Windysoft on the game’s localization,” said Alan Chen, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment Inc. “It’s been exciting to see the enthusiasm and support that players have shown for Rusty Hearts and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Windysoft to bring this unique online gaming experience to our European and North American players. As we soon release the game into open beta, we are fully prepared to provide great services and support to the influx of Rusty Hearts’ players and we look forward to welcoming them.”

Based on user feedback, the open beta will feature major updates including the removal of the Stamina system and completely customizable gamepad button layouts. Instead of a limited amount of dungeon runs, players will now have unlimited access to storm the dungeons and players that play Rusty Hearts with a gamepad will have the ability to remap the controls to their own preference.

Besides an entirely new hub world containing unreleased dungeons and a plethora of fresh quests for players to explore, the extended level cap will take players through the progressing-difficulty levels and challenge them with intense combination attacks, as well as grueling enemy battles. Furthermore, players will gain deeper insight on the heroic characters and their eternal struggle between human and monstrosity.

Rusty Hearts is a multiplayer online game with fast-paced and highly-stylized brawling combat combined with a solo or team-based dungeon exploration experience. Based on a gothic inspired world and an ongoing battle between pure-blood vampires, half-vampires, and humans, players will be able to unleash devastating combo attacks, engage in a wide variety of epic monster battles, collect valuable loot, and become a unique hero.

June 10, 2010 – Redwood City, Calif. – Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a wholly owned US subsidiary of Perfect World Co., Ltd.

Since the game launched in 2009, Jade Dynasty players have spent more than 2,000 years in the game using the unique Invigorate combat aid. The Invigorate combat aid is a feature which allows players to bypass the typical grind associated with most typical MMOs.

Jade Dynasty is truly an MMO that can fit into anyone’s schedule, whether you have 15 minutes or a couple hours to play a day.”
In celebration of Jade Dynasty’s one year anniversary, players will enjoy double EXP for 120 consecutive hours starting on June 16th – 20th. As an additional incentive for players to log on during Jade Dynasty’s anniversary week, players who log a total of 100 cumulative hours in-game (from June 14th – 20th) will be rewarded with a special gift.
