Gala Networks Europe, one of the leading free-to-play games publishers and operator of the http://www.gpotato.eu/ portal, has announced that work is well underway on its latest large-scale MMORPG, Age of Wulin.
Still in the early stages of adaptation and localisation for the west, Age of Wulin promises to be Gala Networks Europe’s most distinctive MMORPG to date, placing players right in the heart of Chinese Wuxia legend while introducing a host of innovative features to the action MMORPG genre.
Age of Wulin will take players back into ancient Chinese history, where they will be immersed in traditional daily life during a period when martial arts culture was at its peak. Nicolas Pajot, COO, Gala Networks Europe, comments: “Age of Wulin represents everything that gPotato.eu is about – a high-quality, original title that really pushes forward the art of the free-to-play MMORPG.”
He continues, “The setting is completely unique, the game systems are highly innovative and overall will let online gamers enjoy a refreshing sensation of freedom seldom experienced in any other MMORPG. As such, Age of Wulin is a title we’re hugely excited about as we gear up to initial testing and closed betas towards later this year.”
Age of Wulin main features are as follows:
- ● Epic scenery and an authentic setting during the Ming Dynasty, around the year 1370 – visit the Shaolin temple, the old city of Beijing or the Great Wall of China
- ● Free world with no character level, classes or weapons restrictions.
- ● Progression is oriented around learning and developing kung fu skills. Players are free to join one of the 8 schools for 8 unique combat styles, and change weapon and school anytime to create their own Kung fu master. All hundreds of skills can be mastered!
- ● Special gravity-defying moves including water-gliding, running vertically along walls and flying across rooftops

- ● The game world is an actual and accurate map of ancient China, 130 sq. km in size
- ● Special offline system that activates when the player logs out, where characters continue their daily lives, experience events and keep a personal diary

- ● Unique PvP, Guild vs. Guild (GvG) and School vs. School combat
- ● Customisable Guild strongholds
Age of Wulin will be available in English, French and German in 2012 from the gPotato.eu portal.
