There are quite a number of martial arts, or wuxia, online games coming out in China, and the one which stands out most currently is Master of Meteor Blades. Developed using an internal engine by KongZhong, the game will not feature any PvE element.
As I wasn’t sure of the details in my previous post, I did a little more digging. It turns out that Master of Meteor Blades is really an arena-style game, where there will be several maps to choose from: 1 on 1 PvP, Free For All, Team Deathmatch etc.
Think of the game as an online shooter, replacing the guns with 1 of 15 weapons and fancy martial arts moves, such as scaling walls and whatnot. Without having to spend time working on AI, the development team promised a variety of skills each weapon, including a focus on combat physics. Players can create their own unique combos with these skills.
