He has 13 minutes of alpha gameplay footage- looks interesting.

The environments look a little better than AoW's, but that mainly appears to be becuase of higher polycount props.  The gameplay though "appears" to be somewhat the same, just flashier.  It looks they are they are definitly targeting the same people that like AoW though, so should be interesting to see their list of features, localization and cash shop to see how it actually competes.

Looks great. Age of Wushu is far more than pretty pictures and flashy fight scenes though. Time will tell if there's any meat on these bones. 

 

Expect to see more Wushu clones coming to the market. 15-20 million players worldwide certainly turns heads. I wish a western developer would make a AoW fantasy clone. I mean clone to the extent of RIFT cloning WoW. Clone all the systems, don't tweek a thing (if they went to tweeking, they would break it.)

Wow, assuming it shares the depth and similar interesting pvp systems of AoW, this game could give Snail some stiff competition.

For Western MMO players,  I would described TYMYD as a amalgamation of  AoW and Blade and Soul.

There's no official English title for TYMYD - so if  people want to inquire on China MMORPG forum the proper name to ask is the abbrevation "Tianya" - short  for Tianya  Mingyue Dao   (translation: HORIZON  MOON  BLADE - name comes from eponymous Wuxia novel)

A few lucky players who have good familiarity  with both AoW and B&S has some hands on experience with a early version of the game are quite impressed.

At least in Chinese market, it is clearly targeting AoW players.

Currently however, Tencent has not expressed any desire for localization to other languages.

The funny thing is with many exclusive cinematic voice-over tutorials - the approach used in TYMYD actually  made it much easier  to pick up  by "regular" Western players than AoW.

Featurewise - the landscaping and enviromental effects of  TYMYD is more impressive - even taken into the consideration the not-yet released improved graphic update versions of AoW known to date.

TYMYD claimed over 600 km2 of open world upon completion and like AoW one can roam freely anywhere in the terrain (developer: "if you can see any structure or terrain - you can jump on top of it").

 For other aspects of game play features we need to wait longer to see.

Saying a game is a clone of another just by its setting its like saying DaoC is a clone of EQ.

China has just recently started making their own mmorpgs and like the medieval fantasy is a common and popular theme in the west so is the Wuxia theme in china.

If anything it looks like a blade and soul clone because of the combat.

The combat looks alright, but it seems more like a click spam than skill based. Also, I saw nothing on how deep the social, and economic mechanics are. Age of wushu really accels in that aspect.  I don't know, perhaps this has flashy combat but is very shallow in overall gameplay.

I was informed that like AoW it is more skill based, but using a different path/style. Also it can be played competitively using just the keyboard. Some of the difference in combat mechanics made sense in the context of the novel the game is based on.

Unlikely AoW, life profession only become available when characters reached a relatively high level.

Among the professions planned are: Police, Outlaw, Traveling Merchant, Stall Keeper, Caravan Escort, Fortress Guard, Musician, Scholar, Hunter and Ranger.

Because the game is consider to take place 400 years before the era AoW only 3 of the oldest schools are common to both games: Shaolin, Beggar Clan and Tangmen. Wudang clan is replaced by their predecessors who worship the same god.

I can't stand playing games that use flashy over-the-top graphics for just about every combat move.  Asian MMOs are notorious for this.  That's almost all they showed in the combat part of the video linked by the OP.  Age of Wushu uses the flashy moves in moderation, from what I have seen.

Looks very similar to AoW indeed, with better animations / graphics.

Wonder how many years we'll have to wait to see this one here though :p

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

This one is made by Tencent - which is the third largest internet company in the world behind amazon and Google. Also Tencent online community has reached over 100 Million concurrent users making it by far the largest online gaming community in the world.

So if it turns out to be any good, I'd expect the Chinese gamers to flock to this in a huge way and drop wushu in a heartbeat.

Still the game is in Alpha and no matter how amazing it may do in China, it still may not do well in western markets even with proper localization.

You still don't get it do you? You can't look at some pretty toons riding on a horse and some guys doing kung fu and say Wushu.

 

That's like seeing some awesome spaceships and a stargate then saying EVE.

Why?  Comparisons to that game makes a lot of sense considering it marked a massive (horrible, in my opinion) industry shift.

Before WoW it was Lineage clones.  Before Lineage there were Ultima clones.  Before that there were MUDs....

What's the point of your comment?
