F2P MMORPG Weapons of Mythology - New Age - Announced

By Kevin Tavore, 3 months ago
Gamemag are a Taiwanese developer who've found some success locally with their titles. Today, they've announced that their successful MMORPG Weapons of Mythology - New Age - will be coming to Xbox One in 2016.


Gamemag promises epic storylines, dozens of dungeons, battlegrounds, guilds, and all the other usual trappings of an MMORPG. The game is set in ancient China during the Chu Han Contention, which occurred during 200 B.C.E. Two rival sects are fighting - the Zhan and the Jie - who both want an ancient relic. In a slight twist on history, demons are also coming from the underworld. Luckily, the relic can save us all.

The dungeons are called "challenging", the character progression has depth with hundreds of possibilities, and the PVP is inspired by MOBA gameplay, which should be an interesting change of pace for seasoned MMO players.

If you're interested, you can attempt to sign up for the closed beta. I tried to sign up and never got a verification email for my account, but perhaps you'll have better luck. It appears you can also buy access to the closed beta, as well as early access to the final release, by purchasing early editions which run for $98.95 USD and $65.95 USD.

Weapons of Mythology - New Age - will release this winter on Xbox One.
