E3 2012: Age of Wushu First Impressions
Snail Games' MMO was one of our bigger surprises at the show.
06.15.12 - 12:46 AM

You know this by now, but each E3 seems to have exponentially more MMORPGs (or MMOs in general) than the previous year. 2012 was no exception, and some games start to look the same. Similar settings, classes, gameplay, and so on.

So it was to Neal and Dave's great surprise that Snail Games' Age of Wushu was a breath of fresh air. But don't let me tell you - read Dave's first impressions and see why he calls Age of Wushu his "biggest surprise of the year" at E3.

Age of Wushu already has over 20 million players in the game's open beta in China, and Snail Games hopes to launch the North American beta later this summer. While free to play in China, a pay model hasn't yet been decided here. But we'll keep you posted!
