Age of Wushu 2 Q&A #1: There Is "Severe Punishment" If Your Character Dies
One of Snail Games' representatives has spoken with the Chinese community about the gameplay of the upcoming sandbox MMO Age of Wushu 2. He reveals some new gameplay details during a community Q&A and I translated some new and interesting contents.
Q: How do you know so many things about the game?
A: I meet and talk to the developer team one time a week.
Q: Age of Wushu 2 is a sandbox, so does the game have any restrictions on class?
A: There is no restriction. It's completely up to players' preference and won't force players to choose anything.
Q: Will the game be different to most MMOs in terms of character death?
A: Yes. There will be severe punishment for character death but I can't go into details now.
Q: Will character suffer certain debuff such as "weak" after they respawn?
A: No. After respawn, your character will fully recover to the status before death.
Q: Will NPCs interact with players?
A: NPCs have their life and relationship. You don't piss them off and they'll be friendly. An exception is bandit NPCs. We are working on a relationship system for NPCs.
Q: Can we build any buildings we want in the game?
A: As long as you have resources and materials you can build things in any styles.
Q: Is the in-game time in AoW2 the same as that in AoW?
A: No. There will be day/night circle. The night will be very dark.
Q: Does the game have 4 different seasons?
A: Not sure yet, but I think it does.
Q: How do the food and eating system work?
A: You have to find food yourself. Food will go bad if it passes the "use-by" date.
Q: Can we eat uncooked food?
A: Yes but it could bring negative effect.
Q: Can we play as pirate?
A: We don't really have sea, but we do allow you to be pirates on the river.
Q: Is it easy to destroy others' houses?
A: Depends on the materials the house is made of.
Q: Is it possible to live / rest in the caves?
Q: How to get horses?
A: You can tame horses in the wildness.
Q: Does the game have instance?
Q: How does the backpack look like?
A: There's weight limit for backpack. So you are restricted by item weight instead of item number.
Q: Will the environment affect combat?
A: Yes. Environment greatly affects combat.
Q: How many villages the game has?
A: Villages can be built by NPCs and players and they can be destroyed as well.
Q: In what areas can we build our own houses?
A: You can build houses in 99% of the game map.
Q: Is there free PK?
A: Yes. Now I don't see any punishment for being criminal.
