Asian online game publisher IAHGames will be distributing a new MMORPG based on the Chinese "wuxia" novels--stories about martial arts heroes--written by Xiong "Gu Long" Yaohua.
Titled New Gulong Online, the game was developed by Taiwanese company Zealot Digital International Corp. The game was made by the company's game divisions at Taiwan and Singapore for a cost of $17 million.
The game features six factions for players to side with and different fighting styles for them to experiment and pick from. Gamers will also get to interact with characters from popular Chinese novels like "Passionate Swordmaster & Heartless Sword", "Xiao Li Swift Darts", and Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng".
The game will be distributed in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand by IAH. The closed beta is scheduled to start at the end of the first quarter of the year.
