As posted a couple of days back (link), China’s number 2 MMO company, NetEase, is looking to reveal its self-developed and big-budget MMORPG soon. A teaser footage was shown earlier today by the Chinese media, and it no doubts resembles Blade & Soul in some way.
With its fiercest rival, number 1 Tencent Games, getting a huge pop for acquiring NCsoft’s Blade & Soul, there is no doubt Game-X will be a direct competitor. The official game’s title and trailer will be shown this coming Friday at a big media conference.
NetEase is also currently preparing to battle against Tencent’s League of Legends and upcoming publisher-less Dota 2 with its own take on the MOBA genre, Heroic 3 Kingdoms (link).
