Perfect World Entertainment’s 2010 blockbuster MMORPG, originally codenamed Project Empire (EM), has been renamed as Forsaken World (Online ?). Though not official, the tease has been given via Perfect World’s English blog and the end of the last video regarding the game’s English title.
The Chinese website of Forsaken World just got updated with the game’s main storyline. Here’s a brief translation by me.
In a galaxy far away lies the planet Grand Mundo, where every living thing is born from the god Dios. Dios enjoy leading a wandering way of life, hence he left his children, Elfo, Titan and Vida to rule Grand Mundo. After a few thousand years, the races of Drawf, Human, Giant and Elf were born. However, Dio’s nemesis, Nyes, followed him to Grand Mundo, and left his own child, Mal, on the planet. Mal was eventually chased away by the forces under Dios after initiating an attack.
Sillia, a half god and most beautiful female on Grand Mundo, became romantically involved with Howard, a human. Using her powers, he turned him into the first of the new race, Vamp (short for Vampire), in order to have eternal love with him.
Mal then started the second attack on Dios’s races, but eventually was still being defeated and pushed back. However, the war left Grand Mundo severely damaged, including the continents of Norte and Cintura, which sunk into the ocean. Left homeless, the inhabitants moved to the western continent, Oeste.
The power of the gods soon started declining, with the races now left to fend for themselves in order to survive. However, an evil renegade group, called the Storm Army, started a new war. Though defeated by the combined strength of the other races, the new war has just begun…
Here’s Oeste again, the starting continent for the players.
Here are the 8 classes in Forsaken World.
There are quite a few new features to look forward to in the game, but I guess I will translate them when more indepth details are out. If that doesn’t happen, it means I’m lazy, haha. But really, there are quite a few unique and rather weird features in the game. The main feature for me will be the much touted feature on how players can affect the future of the game world via their various reactions and handling of quests.
Forsaken World will enter its first global beta in China on January 18th to 24th.
