With recent events like GDC and New York Comic Con spurring on interest in Snail Games’ upcoming free-to-play MMORPG, Age of Wushu, the developers have decided to extend a promotional offer for the game’s Elite Edition presale package, giving more gamers a chance to score some sweet in-game items at a discount in preparation for the early 2013 launch.
“A large portion of the new publicity we received during each show [GDC/NYCC] was through word of mouth,” said Snail Games’ EVP of Marketing, Dick Roberts. “We want to give new fans a chance to take advantage of the Elite Edition’s rock-bottom price.”
Like most free-to-play games, Age of Wushu will be free at its core, but offer cosmetic items, buffs, potions and additional content at a price. For those who are ready to drop a little cash in advance, the Elite Edition nets you a whole bunch of goodies for $9.99. The promotion now runs until Nov. 4, so you still need to act kind of quickly if this is something you want to take advantage of.
So what do you get for your 10 bucks? The game, for starters. But that’s going to be free for everyone. What everyone won’t have access to, though, are the slew of perks being offered in the Elite Edition. Picking that up will guarantee you access to both of the games closed betas, the first of which begins shortly after the Nov. 14 promotional deadline. You’ll also have access to a special Exclusive Access Period, giving you a 90-day head start on the full game before the free-to-play crowd joins in. You’ll also get special items like a limited edition mount and virtual vanity gear, as well as a stock of healing potions, power-ups, etc.
If cruising around a massive fantasy world as a member of one of eight unique martial arts schools and kicking butt sounds like a good time, then Age of Wushu might be just what the doctor ordered. You can find more details and purchase the Elite Edition at the game’s official website.
