Free-to-play MMO Swordsman looks like the next best thing to the Jade Empire sequel I dream about. In the following trailer, we see three of the 10 schools of combat you can choose to follow. They are Wu-Tang, Sun and Moon, and House Tong. One of them seems to involved gauntlets that shoot bullets. So those are gun-gloves, I guess. The other two seem to involve more traditional swordplay and magic. It all looks pretty sweet.
We have a brand new trailer for Swordsman available for you today. Focusing on three of the ten classes available at launch, this trailer highlights the flashy and dynamic abilities players will gear up and battle with when Swordsman launches in North America and Europe later this year.
Watch the trailer HERE.
Details about the new classes can be found below, with more specific information HERE.
Wu-Tang: These masters of Taoism combine inner force and physical strength to become superb group fighters. Swinging heavy two-handed blades with ease, masters of the Wu-Tang styles supplement their raw physical damage with effects that buff and heal themselves and their entire group.
Sun and Moon: The heretical disciples of the Sun and Moon Cult become deadly assassins with high mobility and heavy damage. Armed with twin blades linked by chain, many of their skills focus on single targets and let them attack in close quarters or at range. Their sinister powers can steal away the life force of enemies, distributing it to the cultist and their group.
House Tong: Unlike the other schools, House Tong members rely on guns rather than blades. A family-like school, famous for their firearms and throwing weapons, House Tong members use traps to keep enemies at distance and attack from afar. These masters of firearms provide excellent damage in group combat situations, and with high attack speed and quick movement, the House Tong skills will frustrate any enemy.
