Age of Wushu 2 Has No Quest & Stats; Plans to Launch Worldwide in 2017
>> Snail Games Announces Age of Wushu 2, a Sandbox MMORPG
The game's Producer Xu Zhenhua confirms Age of Wushu 2 isn't meant to replace the original Age of Wushu MMO. The two games will be available in the market and each of them aims at different audiences. Xu mentions that the team is even considering the possibility of character data share between the 2 games.
Unlike the original title, Age of Wushu 2 isn't set in any era in ancient China, and it has no quests and character stats. All of these changes are supposed to make AOW2 go beyond martial arts genre. The team wants to stress on freedom, sandbox, and exploration for Age of Wushu 2. Like The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, the hit or miss in AOW2 won't be determined by your stats or gear but physical position and combat style.
Last but not least, Age of Wushu 2 will have a different business model from Age of Wushu. However, Xu Zhenhua doesn't give any details about the business model.
