PostSubject: Battle of the Immortals(PWE says this one will be Unique)   Wed Jan 13, 2010 3:02 pm

Battle of the Immortals is an upcoming MMO that is scheduled to launch in early 2010, and the Perfect World Entertainment team promises in a new blog entry that it will be the company's "most unique offering to date." The game is one of the first titles developed by PWE's development studio in Shanghai, which will apparently give it a different flavor from the games developed in Beijing.


The blog doesn't provide any gameplay details, but it does state that "the armor and weapons in BoI are incredibly detailed." More information on the game should be revealed in the coming weeks.



=====================blog info below=============================

Battle of the Immortals


Greetings "BoIs" and Girls,


My name is Xarfox and I've been blessed with working at Perfect World Entertainment for quite some time now.  Some of you may know me from my work with Perfect World International.


Some of you may have also noticed that with the new recent changes to our snazzy website, there has been a new game added which has been dubbed "Battle of the Immortals" or BoI for short.  (Pronounced - "Boyeeeee")


One of the primary complaints I see from players across all of our titles here at PWE is that our games share a lot of similar characteristics.  Time and time again I hear or read, "Oh great another copy/paste game from Perfect World."  I could spend an entire era writing about why I don't agree with that statement, but that's not what I'm here to write about today.



BoI is probably the most unique offering to date from Perfect World Entertainment.  What most people may not know, is that a majority of our titles come from our development studio in Beijing, China.  BoI is one of the first titles developed by our development studio in Shanghai.  This is one of many reasons why Boyeeeee (5 E's usually) is going to provide our users with an experience totally unlike any of our current offerings.


So what's so special about BoI?  What makes it unique?


Let's start with my favorite aspect of BoI, the gear!


 Crazy Claws


The armor and weapons in BoI are incredibly detailed.  Even the gear you get as a noob is fairly intricate and unique.  The set pictured above doesn't even begin to illustrate how crazy the armor is.  What you can't see is that the claws independently move occasionally, and the eyes located on the knuckles of the claws look around as you battle enemies.  Let's move on.



 Epicness Behold!


The armor set above looks fairly epic as you can see.  The metal wings and feathers all independently move and shift, giving you a new way to flex on people you destroy in PvP.  This last image paints a much better picture in terms of the gear animation in BoI.


Click to see a full version


You may want to click on the above image and expand it to get a true sense of how insane this set is.  You can see how the helmet can open and closes.  The shield itself has an open and closed state, and even the weapon has two different modes to convey your gamer prowess to your enemies.


BoI is shaping up to be a truly unique and intense game.  Keep checking the PWE blog for more information in the coming weeks.  ;)

A PWE game that will be unique and unlike any other game on the market? Hard to swallow, as they say that about all their games. Yet each game is very identical to the rest of the PWE lineup.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt this time... Let's see what the verdict is soon :)

As we reported, Perfect World Entertainment recently gave players a brief glimpse at its upcoming MMO, Battle of the Immortals. Well, a new blog entry outlines the story of the game, as well as shows off three pieces of concept art. It also confirms that the closed beta is right around the corner.


According to the blog entry, "the story of BoI is actually a very interesting blend of East meets West." The game is set in the world of Motenia, which is wrapped in chaos following a war between Norse Gods. You can read the whole story after the jump.


Another week goes by as we come closer and closer to the Closed Beta launch for Battle of the Immortals.  We here at PWE are very excited to be publishing BoI, and in the midst of our pre-launch fervor, have set aside some time to bring you guys up to speed.


Some of you guys have emailed in or commented about the game inquiring about the backstory of BoI, specifically as to whether or not it will be deeply rooted in Chinese mythology.  The story of BoI is actually a very interesting blend of East meets West.  I know this sounds like a corny marketing pitch but stay with me here.  ;)



The world in which BoI takes place is a world called "Motenia", the world of the mortals.  The Norse God Loki in his lust for power invaded the mortal realm of Motenia.  Several other Gods came to humanity's defense and plunged the mortal world into chaos.  This period of time is today known as "Ragnarok".  (For those unfamiliar with the term, Ragnarok is a term from Norse Mythology which refers to a series of major events, including a great battle that ultimately results in the death of a number of major figures as well as gods".)  This series of battles tore apart the world of Motenia, shattering not only the landscape and continents, but also sealing away various artifacts of power in the process.


More than 300 years after Ragnarok, the world of Motenia is still wrapped in chaos.  A Goddess of Fate peered into the future, attempting to guide the mortals of Motenia to peace and safety.  In her vision she saw an even greater era of destruction caused by a man called "The Dragon Emperor".



The Dragon Emperor was an infamous dictator known for his tyrannical and merciless reign.  For every man in power, there exists someone who wishes to take that power, and the Dragon Emperor was no exception to that rule.  Rebellions against his regime ran rampant across his empire.  One group of elves, known as the Witches of the Millennium were able to utilize an ancient magic, sealing the Dragon Emperor in stone, along with his army.


The Goddess of Fate believes that the Dragon Emperor will soon find a way to free himself and his army from the curse, soon thereafter laying waste to the world.  Only those who wield great artifacts of power will be able to stand a chance against the Dragon Emperor and his army.


We hope you all enjoyed this sneak peek at the story of Battle of the Immortals. Keep checking the PWE blog over the next few weeks for more updates on the game as well as the upcoming Closed Beta!

    So what doesn't make this a PW clone?

    All I see is PW with 2 somewhat bigger changes compared to the other clones

    At least the lore sounds different so there shouldn't be as much copy, change colors, paste going on.

    I ll still give this a chance to turn out different, since I see the possibility for it but so far it's not convincing at all

    Despite its logo looking quite a bit like the logo from a famous Blizzard MMORPG, Battle of the Immortals is an all-new MMORPG from Perfect World Entertainment.




    Battle of the Immortals - Story Trailer

    More Battle of the Immortals Videos



    In Perfect World Entertainment's earlier blog entry by Xarfox, readers were treated to what is a surprisingly attractive game. BOI's character models look nice, and the details of these characters and their equipment (called Soul Gear) are very impressive. Readers also learned that Battle of the Immortals is being developed by an entirely different studio than the majority of PWE games, promising a new and exciting experience for its players.


    A more recent post by Xarfox reveals the setting for the game, the world of "Motenia". Xarfox states that the story of Battle of the Immortals is "actually a very interesting blend of East meets West". Certainly not the most unique of sales pitches, but the game can slide on account of how interesting it actually looks.


    Full SizeBattle of the Immortals


    Including elements of Norse myth in the games own mythology, players are set into a war-torn world 300 years after the events of Ragnarok, which re-shaped the world and left vestiges of the great cataclysm in the form of artifacts all over the world. Still reeling from the aftermath of Ragnarok, a Goddess of Fate sees even more trouble to come in the form of the Dragon Emperor, a notorious dictator that was sealed into stone along with his army by a group of elves known as the Witches of the Millennium. The Goddess believes the Dragon Emperor will break the seal and return to establish his dominion over the world. Only those wielding the artifacts of power can stand a chance against him and his army.


    The artwork introduced for this entry is very nicely done as well, illustrating a fierce battle between two shadowy, mounted warriors, a beautiful illustration of a female caster, and a great battle of warriors and dragon mounts, sacking a fiery city.


    Full SizeBattle of the Immortals



    The latest entry for Battle of the Immortals details what the game actually plays like and features. Xarfox breaks the game down into bullets for easy reading.


  • Battle of the Immortals is a 2.5D Action MMORPG
  • The story of BoI incorporates Eastern and Western culture, ranging from Norse Mythology to the Qin Dynasty.
  • 5 Classes, each with their own unique skill sets and equipment.
  • Zodiac System, empower your character according to their birth date.
  • Auto-Navigation Quest System, progress easily without having look up quest information.
  • Soul Gear System, unique sets of armor and gear for each class that grow and change as players use them.
  • Hardcore PvP. Battle other players within a deep and detailed ranking system.
  • Hardcore PvE. Battle against players within dungeons for the right to take down epic bosses.
  • PvE Timetrials. Race against other groups and guilds to kill bosses, the group with the fastest time gains access to even greater challenges.
  • Pet System. Collect a wide variety of pets ranging from cute animals to devastating monsters.
  • Mount System. Ride upon giant beasts in order to shorten your travels, players can even fight while riding!
  • Territory War System. Battle other guilds for rare relics, resources, and other treasures within the Territory War System.


    Full SizeBattle of the Immortals



    The features, particularly the action aspect of gameplay, sound very enticing. Xarfox promises that a more in-depth explanation of these features will be released as the game nears its release, as well as details and dates of the games closed beta. Stay tuned to MMOsite for any further updates.

    i was considering testing till i saw this notice :)


    ------------------------------------------------------


    Greetings Everyone,

    As many of you may know, our initial launch date for Battle of the Immortals Closed Beta was planned for February 10th.

    Over the past several months, we have been localizing, updating, patching, revising, and testing BoI. Now over the past week, we've been slaving away, working nights, coordinating with the development team, and drinking energy drinks non-stop. We've made a huge amount of progress with our version of BoI, however we're still not satisfied with the results.

    We want to provide all Perfect World Entertainment users with the cleanest and most polished game experience possible and as a result we have decided to delay the Closed Beta for BoI until mid-April.

    The following is a list of changes that are scheduled to occur prior to this new Closed Beta:
    - Support for Windows 7
    - Support for 64-bit systems
    - Support for higher monitor resolutions
    - Fully integrated in-game video tutorial system
    - Revised cash shop structure and items
    - Revised quest flow for low level players
    - Revised monster AI
    - Readjusted damage and HP for both players and monsters
    - Revised dungeon loot tables

    We will continue to slave away between now mid-April in order to ensure we deliver the most polished and unique version of Battle of the Immortals to date.

    Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we release even more information about BoI as well as provide more details about our upcoming revised launch date.

    "A late game is only late once. A bad game is a bad game forever."

    MMOsite: Jon Belliss is the project manager who is responsible for Battle of the Immortals. Hi, Jon, firstly, can you introduce your major work to our readers?


    Jon: Many players may know me from Perfect World International. I am the product manager for both of these titles.


    MMOsite: We are very curious about your new fantasy MMO Battle of the Immortals. Could you give us a brief introduction to this game?


    Jon: Battle of the Immortals is a 2.5D action MMORPG that's based on both Eastern and Western mythology. BoI is set in a world called Motenia (world of the mortals), that is in disarray and chaos, 300 years after Norse god Loki caused Ragnarok. With another series of battles and possible Ragnarok on the horizon, players must search out powerful artifacts to hope to prevent this next great war.

    MMOsite: Since this is PWE's first 2.5D MMO, could you tell us why PWE used 2.5D instead of 3D in Battle of the Immortals?


    Jon: With the 2.5D, Battle of the Immortals also has a top down isometric view like Diablo or Torchlight. This gives BoI a different feel from our other titles. As the first title from our Shanghai studio, they really wanted to make sure BoI felt different from our other titles.


    MMOsite: How about the game features of Battle of the Immortals? What is its most interesting part?


    Jon: Battle of the Immortals has several new features to set it apart including a Zodiac System and Soul Gear System. With the Zodiac System, players select a birth date during character creation to receive special benefits from their Zodiac sign.



    The Soul Gear system is an in depth gear system for players to obtain unique sets of armor and weapons for each class that grow, level and change alongside the players.


    MMOsite: How is your latest closed beta test? Is everything going well?


    Jon: Our closed beta is scheduled to begin mid-April. We delayed our February CB date because we felt the game wasn't ready for our players, and wanted to take the time finalize the game play changes for the North American market. We'd rather wait and release a good game late than release a bad game now.


    MMOsite: Then what content can players enjoy in this CBT?


    Jon: In our closed beta, players can dive right into the story and acquiring the pieces for Soul Gear. We'll also be working on some events for players in the closed beta, so keep your eyes open for more news on that.

    MMOsite: Can you give players some tips for the CBT, like how to join your CBT events?



    Keep an eye on our forums: http://boi-forum.perfectworld.com/ for announcements for our CB events. Additionally any CBT events will be posted and updated on the main BoI site: http://boi.perfectworld.com.








    MMOsite: The instance exploration is one of the key features in Battle of the Immortals. Can you tell us how many instances will be opened to players and what they are?


    Jon: There are roughly 12 instances currently in BoI. Some will be disabled when we start Closed Beta and will be opened as players progress through the game. Some of the instances are timed battles that require a lot of damage and speed. Other dungeons are open to the public, meaning that anyone and everyone can go fight for the boss.


    MMOsite: Any suggestions for players who want to challenge the instances in BoI?


    Jon: My main suggestion is to have a balanced group. Having a balanced group will do wonders for your party regardless of what instance you're journeying to.



    MMOsite: The Soul Gear that xarfox revealed in his blog is very impressive. Can you give us more introductions about it? Can players get Soul Gears in this CBT?


    Jon: The Soul Gear system is actually undergoing some changes for the North American release. In the Chinese version of BoI, Soul Gear is only accessible via high-level raid content. In the US version of BoI, we've changed the way players access Soul Gear, making the game more suitable for smaller groups of friends. CBT players will be able to collect their first pieces of Soul Gear once they reach level 45.

    MMOsite: What is your next plan for Battle of the Immortals? When will the game be officially released?


    Jon: Currently BoI is slated for a mid-April release date. We're currently evaluating the last few milestones before CBT and determining a final date. You can be sure that once we have that date set, you guys will know right away.


    MMOsite: Thank you! Your answers will help players a lot. We hope you will achieve great success in North America.



    Jon: Thank you, and thank you to all our patient fans and eagerly awaiting players. It will be worth the wait!

    Battle of the Immortals
    Closed
    Beta Test Coming February
    10th, 2010
    CBT pushed back to mid-April.
    Official
    Site


    We
    recommended BoI in last month, but its Closed Beta
    Test has been
    pushed back to mid-April. Floating rumor shows it may
    come out early.
    Just stay tuned with our report, if you want to play
    this game. So our
    CB Key giveway event proceeds as usual, enjoy it!

    Battle
    of the Immortals Closed Beta Key Giveaway
    Event




    The
    following is a list of changes that are scheduled to
    occur prior to
    this new Closed Beta:


    - Support for
    Windows 7
    -
    Support for 64-bit systems
    - Support for higher
    monitor
    resolutions
    - Fully integrated in-game video tutorial system
    -
    Revised cash shop structure and items
    - Revised quest flow for low
    level
    players
    - Revised monster AI
    - Readjusted damage and HP for
    both
    players and monsters
    - Revised dungeon loot tables

    Soul
    Gear




    This Berzerker set is themed with iron
    dragons. The
    dragons on each shoulder occasionally open and breathe
    fire, while the
    rest of the set glows with an eerie red.



    This Champion set has an electric theme too
    it. The
    shoulders and sword actually have turbines on them that turn
    and rotate.
    The sword also is capable of opening up, revealing it's
    electric core.
    Pretty snazy I must say.



    This Heretic set has a holy paladin look and
    feel to it.
    The shield opens up, as do the shoulders. What's really
    cool about this
    set is that the staff extends itself via an unknown
    holy energy.



    Thhis Magus set has a frosty feel to it. The
    shoulders
    are set low, but occasionally rise up with swirls of cold
    wind. The
    visor drops down in order to give you a more menacing
    look.


    This Slayer set is one of my personal favorites.
    The entire set is
    surrounded by floating chains that rotate and turn
    around the player's
    body. The gigantic daggers flip out like huge
    switchblades, while the
    gears at the top of the hilt turn.
    These
    are only a few sets of armor and weapons from the arsenal of
    BoI.
    There's plenty more where this came from folks.

    oh yeah i heard the game have a in-build bot system like jade dynasty for max level characters.

    as long we do not in game-bot all the way to max lvl i think its fine.

    just have to recruit those that prefer grinding/playing as to paying zen points to buy botting credits.

    from our point of view.this will be good in the sense the company will try their best to wipe out private bots client.and only those paypal ppl can bot to a certain extend so we will see much less botting here.

    we can advertise ourselves to recruit those active players so the guild channel will not be dead.

    this is heavy pvp oriented mmo so pking ppl who use the ingame bot system is totally possible heh.
