Neverwinter: Elemental Evil Now Live!

The time has come, adventurers, to defend the Sword Coast from utter destruction once again!

The Cults of Elemental Evil have amassed their forces to take over the Sword Coast and reduce all life down to its four basic elements: Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water. With each element comes a terrifying coterie of cultists more dangerous than the next. Fortunately for the good citizens of Neverwinter, the Sword Coast factions have lent their strength to the cause of driving out the menacing cultists and saving the Sword Coast. In addition to these powerful factions, two heroes have emerged to drive an armored boot into the elemental backside of evil. Indeed, the Ranger Minsc and his miniature giant space hamster, Boo, have appeared and are ready to aid in the fight to save Neverwinter.

With Neverwinter: Elemental Evil comes the Oathbound Paladin, a class suited to both tanking and healing. Elemental Evil will also bring with it a raised level cap, allowing players to reach level 70 and enter special epic dungeons that have been reworked to provide challenges worthy of their epic title. Adventurers on the PC will also be able battle the Cults of Elemental Evil through 4 new adventure zones, each with its own elemental theme.

The Forgotten Realms are in need of your aid once again, will you heed the call?

Star Conflict Has Docked!

Sending out a signal to all Arc players… Star Conflict has docked in the Arc hangar and awaits brave pilots in search of a thrill. An ancient alien civilization has been discovered where the remains of once thriving cities and ships ominously float along. This discovery unearthed a vast array of artifacts and riches that many sought to gain, but only few have returned. Dare you set course for promise of vanity?

Developed by Star Gem Inc., Star Conflict is a free-to-play space simulation MMO where you travel throughout the star-studded sector to form alliances and squadrons, take part in action-packed battles with enemy pilots, and most of all, to survive the enveloping, yet beautiful, darkness.

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.
