First revealed in April 2018 and showcased at ChinaJoy 2018, Tencent Games recently announced that Perfect World Mobile will officially launch in China on 6 March. Based on the original Perfect World Online and developed by Perfect World, this mobile version has already gone through months of Closed Beta tests. Also, you can see that Tencent Games has again asserted its dominance of the Chinese games market by having Perfect World Mobile on its platform, rather than developer Perfect World launching the game itself.
The 3 main races are all here for the official launch, including Human, Untamed, and Winged Elf. The 5 confirmed classes are Human Wizard, Human Blademaster, Untamed Barbarian, Male Winged Elves Archer, and Female Winged Elves Cleric. The 6th class is teased as “Fairy”, but no other details were revealed thus far. Do note that these class names are from the PC English version of Perfect World Online, and might change if Perfect World Mobile ever launches for the western market. The holy trinity combo is still here too.
Main features of the game includes the classic character wings, flying mounts, costumes, and aerial combat was touted since the beginning. Perfect World Mobile also claims to have “over 60,000 square kilometre” of land to explore, but it would not be the first time a game feature is exaggerated in press releases. Based on the 14-year old Perfect World IP, will this mobile MMORPG fulfill expectations? We will try to play the game at launch, so stay tuned!
