Although this game was announced around 3 years back, I never did report about it as the concept of the game was kind of unclear for me, and there really ain’t much specific details other than sketchy press releases in the Chinese media. Introducing World Zero, an upcoming self-developed online title by China’s Shanda Games.
In a nutshell, World Zero is not really your typical MMO, but rather acts as a platform, allowing players to create their own ancient martial arts world. How does this work?
1. As you can see from the trailer above, ALL players will be able to edit their own world.
2. There is still core content and a game world created by the developers, just like any other MMORPGs. The theme, as mentioned, will be Chinese martial arts world (think Age of Wulin).
3. In the world creation system, players can create an alternate world, for other players to enter and explore. Think of it as a housing system where players visit each other, but this time a few thousand times bigger.
4. You can customize the mobs, their AI, shape the surroundings, create your own martial arts clan, own skills, own homeland and of course, your own world.
Clearer now? I wasn’t really getting the whole concept until reading a couple of articles several times over and over again, since the website doesn’t really explain stuff in detail. At this point of time, game details are still slightly sketchy, with only the 2nd Private Test phase coming up in April where 100 lucky players will get to try the game out.
