Announced last week, God Slayer is supposedly ChangYou’s answer to Tencent Games’ incoming Blade & Soul. Both are renowned game publishers and developers in China, hence there is a serious rivalry going on in the world’s biggest games market. God Slayer is touted as China’s first action MMORPG developed using CryEngine 3, featuring an extensive open world for players to explore.
Various oriental myths and legends will be brought to live in God Slayer, boosted by the game engine’s potent power. But the lore just doesn’t stop in the East, as the main lore is mixed with elements from the West as well. Live weather system, day and time cycles, interactive environment are just some of the eye candies available.
A new highlighted feature will be the mount system. Unlike most games, different mounts in God Slayer will react differently in various environments. Some are more adapt moving across grasslands, some are faster in the air, some are equipped to swim… and more. There will also be mounts able to sit multiple players as well as aiding players in combat.
