Displayed at the business hall of G-Star 2015, War Rage has gotten quite some attention from the Asian gaming media since then. Developed internally at China’s NetEase, War Rage is led by producer Xi Wang, who was apparently part of the Halo team in North America. More details were uncovered recently, including the ambition to bring War Rage to consoles and even virtual reality sets.
NetEase claimed while there is a hint of KOEI’s Dynasty Warriors in War Rage, both are totally different games. Individual generals in War Rage will not be able to manipulate the whole battlefield, as it depends on players to manage and control the different types of troops as well. A combat strategist, interesting. Each game would last between 15 to 20 minutes, depending on play style.
After G-Star 2015, there were overseas publishers who were interested in discussing business regarding War Rage, but NetEase felt the timing wasn’t right yet, hence no deal was done. The team wanted to polish War Rage for the domestic PC market first before exploring overseas options. Game features such as character growth and PVP modes, have yet to be finalized.
