It has been nearly 3 years since Swordsman Online was first announced, and the game has gone through a couple of invite-only tests at its Beijing headquarters. The new FGT phase begins on 17th November, and will feature all 10 playable clans plus PvP features. However, the core focus will be on combat and instanced scenarios instead.
As part of the upgraded combat system, the self-created skill function will be available for testing for the very first time. The instances will feature various storyline from the classic Wandering Swordsman novel, with traps, dynamic events, and high AI mobs. The previously mentioned stealth disguise feature will be in as well. There is of course still no release date scheduled, although it is more or less delayed till early next year.
