IDC/Games and Taiwan based Gamemag announces plans to release its MMORPG Weapons of Mythology: New Age to Western audiences in late 2016.
Weapons of Mythology: New Age is a free to play fantasy MMORPG with "classic content" with both PvE and PvP gameplay. It's set during the period of Chu Han Contention and the game focuses on two rival sects --The Zhan and the Jie -- serving different kings and fighting for the ultimate ancient Relic. During this turmoil, the evil Morkans take advantage of the strife and rise from the underworld and cause havoc across the land. As Gamermag's tagline for the game goes: "the one who wields the Relic will be the only true savior."
The MMORPG features a relic-based combat system "which add extra abilities to the characters and grant hundreds of combinations," pet and mount systems, a guild system complete with guild-specific abilities and guild wars, and a PcP battlefield based on DOTA style map with team and league ladders. Gamermag is also promising "complex dungeons that will be a challenge even for the most experienced players."
The companies say the game is expected to release in the final months of the year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Steam). It will be localized to the following laguages: English, German, Spanish, French, Polish, and Italian.
