Time to take on the biggest online gaming company in China… Perhaps even the world. Tencent Games host many carnivals and events on its own, including a competitive league for almost all its games, but will still be part of ChinaJoy 2011 as well. This year, the company is slated to have demos ready for various of their previously announced titles. To add on, the whole event will be hosted by the Happy Family, the most popular hosting team in China now. You can see their cartoon version below.
News trickled in recently with regards to Blade & Soul China getting a playable demo at ChinaJoy 2011. This will be sort of a surprise to me, as I didn’t see the game being translated until later this year. One of the most anticipated titles in China, if not the most, the Chinese forums are flooding with threads and comments from the public about visiting the convention just to try the game out.
ArcheAge China will be making an appearance as well, but there is no news of it being playable. The game debuted a few months ago with much fanfare as well. If there is a playable demo available, I wonder what will all the other booths do with almost every gamers stalking out Tencent Games’ demo stations.
The biggest of the “minor” titles will be ASURA, a Diablo-styled MMO but with Journey to the West’s settings. Well, not all of it, but it is loosely based on the classic novel. Below is one of the official trailers revealed so far, so have a look!
There are various other hit titles as well, including Continent of the Ninth (C9) China, War of Zombies (online shooter), Webzen’s BATTERY (online shooter), League of Legends China and more. Tencent Games will no doubt have the games all players are looking forward to. Well, that’s the reason why they are China’s biggest online gaming company.
