Perfect World Entertainment released some new screenshots for the upcoming Monster Hunter style MMORPG, RaiderZ. The screenshots are a little bit of a far cry from hunting any monsters, though, and basically it just shows some players powering up and get ready to kick butt.
RaiderZ is an action-style MMORPG that lets players create a character (and there are actually male and female classes this time around instead of having gender-locked class types), hop into the game world and start hacking and slashing away. The really cool part about the game is the ability to switch weapon types on the fly even if you're not the specified class. So, if you're taking a ton of damage as a Berserker early on, you can switch off your buster sword and easily equip a sword and shield to tank hits instead of focusing entirely on DPS. It's an awesome setup that changes up class roles greatly.
The combat itself is a mix between Vindictus and Monster Hunter, where you can attack, perform combos and special abilities, as well as roll, dodge, block and unlock skills to parry. Hit registry is also based on whether the weapon connects to a target as opposed to the woeful hit/miss roll dice.
RaiderZ is still undergoing some stress testing but will hit open beta soon enough. You can check out the new screenshots below or visit the Official Website to sign-up for the upcoming free-to-play MMORPG.
