After reporting about the huge update which will see the China server for Battle of the Immortals renaming to Battle of the Immortals 2, Perfect World Beijing has confirmed yet another name change for the entire game once the expansion hits. Roughly translated, it will now be called World of Immortals (direct translation will be World of Gods and Demons). And once again, despite Perfect World Entertainment (the North America branch) denying, Perfect World Beijing and several respected overseas media in Korea and China officially reported that Runic Games did took part in the game’s development (Like I said, my sources were reliable even before the news went official).
Most of the new features were detailed in my previous posts, but here are some big details after the screenshot below..
World of Immortals will be running on a different server. Yes, it means that there will be Battle of the Immortals China and World of Immortals China, 2 “different” games. Other than the 3 classes revealed, there will be 5 more new classes to be announced for World of Immortals. A different expansion will be available for the original Battle of the Immortals China at the end of the year. World of Immortals is also being developed for a possible console version in the near future.This will mean players will be able to meet online using the PC or Xbox 360 /Playstation 3 in the future! And yes, all these are official information from Perfect World Beijing!
I wonder how will this affect the North American server now…
