Rusty Hearts, which went into Open Beta recently in Korea, will be published later this year by MMO company, Perfect World Entertainment for the North American English version. A hack-and-clash action multiplayer game, it will be the first MMORPG not developed by Perfect World itself. A really good change, as there will soon be an influx of similar genre titles getting ready to be released in the English market. Without further a due, let us take a look at the official Q&A which was just released recently.
Rusty Hearts is a fast-paced multiplayer online action game with fast-paced and highly-stylized beat-em-up style combat combined with solo or team-based dungeon exploration experience. Become a unique hero and engage in epic monster battles, collect valuable loot, and explore a beautifully visualized, anime-inspired world.
Action, action, and more action! We’ve been influenced by some of the best brawlers and arcade style fighters out there. Rusty Hearts has a similar feel to games such as Castle Crashers or Scott Pilgrim. The fighting game vibe in Rusty Hearts also resembles games such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Street Fighter IV, which gets players to string together the best combo moves possible. Hitting the right combos is the key to success in battle.
As big fans of the Devil May Cry series, the mix of stylish heroes and intense fights in a dark gothic environment definitely inspired us during the making of Rusty Hearts.
Indeed. Bits and pieces of various anime/manga series such as the fast and furious battles in Naruto and Dragon Ball, the background and storyline in Bleach, and the elements in Full Metal Alchemist inspired us to create the stylistic anime-like world in Rusty Hearts.
At a minimum, the game will run with the following specs: a processor such as the Pentium 4 1.4 GHz, 1GB of RAM and a video card with 128 MB of RAM, but to get the best experience possible, we recommend that you use an Intel Core2 Duo 2.5 GHz, 2GB of RAM and a video card with 256MB of RAM.
With only just a few months away, closed beta is currently scheduled for July 2011. Check the Rusty Hearts website often as we continue to post more details about closed beta – http://rustyhearts.perfectworld.com
Zero, nothing! Rusty Hearts, like all Perfect World Entertainment games, is free-to-play so there’s very little to lose and a whole lot to gain if you get into the game. With no monthly subscription fees, you can invite as many of your friends to whip up nasty combo attacks and fight together!
Along with other interesting heroes in Rusty Hearts, Angela and Tude are a dynamic duo of fighters. Angela is a witch with magical skills who has made it her destiny to fight Lord Vlad, the leader of the vampire armies.
Tude is a free spirited vagabond who ends up joining an elite half-vampire alliance during his travels across the world. A massive force to reckon with, he is equipped with wild combat skills and possesses dark secrets.
