Age of Wushu – Drawing the crowds at E3 2012

[Game website] Most of you folks would have read about Suzhou Snail Game by now, which is the China developer for the upcoming Age of Wushu (Age of Wulin in Europe). Known as Snail Games in North America, the company was present at E3 2012 with a massive promotion for the martial arts MMO. Attendees of the event did manage to get a first hand tryout at the game’s first English demo build.

Although action star Jet Li was signed as the game’s global spokesperson, he was apparently not at the show. More information of the game here (link).

 
Also present is Suzhou Snail Game’s upcoming MMO title, Black Gold Online. Back in China, the executive overseeing the game just left his post, with sources claiming too much resources were pumped into promoting Age of Wushu. Well, I do feel for him. Black Gold Online takes place in a world where magic meets metal, where several different races are in conflict in a… fantasy steampunk setting?
