Mercenary Wars

Mercenary Wars is an online military FPS that features a large number of characters that the player can customize. For each new character that a player earns in-game they can allocate a set amount of points into different stats to give them different strengths. For example, there are stats to increase a character’s skill with SMGs, Rifles, and Sniper Rifles. A player can also increase its character’s walking speed, grenade-throwing abilities, defense increases and much more.

Although a player must select just one of its characters to start a battle with, they may switch between them during re-spawn time. If a player’s selected character specializes in SMGs and speed, they can switch to their sniper specialist while re-spawning, thus allowing an added depth of strategy and the ability to adapt to what is going on on the battlefield.

Unlike other first person shooter games available today, Mercenary Wars features a unique stat system that players can use to upgrade and customize their lifelike characters. The combat in the game is designed to feel very realistic, while also allowing players to adjust their speed, accuracy, and health stats. Mercenary Wars is set in the not so distant future in a world where order and society as we know them are a thing of the past. The economies of the world have crashed and have been replaced with total chaos. New alliances have been forged and the world is now controlled by well-trained groups of mercenaries. Players must determine who to swear their allegiance to and fight side-by-side to the death, if necessary, in the quest to ensure becoming the new global powerhouse.

Mercenary Wars also features an innovative Artificial Intelligence system where computer controlled “bots” can be used in several ways ranging from practice to enhancing game play. Via four difficulty modes, players can select their desired skill level no matter what their previous FPS experience might be. Other features include multiple gameplay modes, a variety of character types and races, extensive ranking system including more than 50 different character ranks and title, an expansive number of weapons and equipment available for character customization and a built-in player-to-player audio communication tool for enhanced real-world combat simulation.

Dragon Oath

Dragon Oath is a massively multiplayer game focused on martial arts and community building.  Based on the very popular Chinese novel "Tian Long Ba Bu" (Tale of Eight Demigods), it incorporates many missions and activities that follow the original storyline, which has also been adapted to add new features and characters. These elements allow players to develop their own personalized experiences, and also to foster virtual social relationships, which we have designed to appeal across a diverse range of interests.

The combination of martial arts and community building has strong appeal. Fighting-based games often have high player participation when they are launched due to the excitement level of the content, but users may leave rapidly as their initial enthusiasm fades. Conversely, community-based offerings can experience more gradual growth as they build their relationships with each other.  However, they also tend to have longer life spans since these bonds strengthen over time.

A beautifully rendered ancient Chinese world

In a world growing increasingly smaller, China still seems a faraway and exotic land, with secrets and mysteries of ages past, its history and intentions veiled from most Westerners. Yet behind that veil lies one of the most amazing civilizations the world has ever known. For most of its 5,000-year existence, China has been the largest, most populous, wealthiest, and mightiest nation on Earth. Come explore this rich and ancient culture in Dragon Oath’s recreation of the ancient Chinese world, deeply ingrained with its history and mythologies. Enjoy stunning visuals of the ancient cities, and traditional and not so traditional ancient clothing for your avatar.  You will also experience beautifully rendered avatar skills, with stunningly vivid affects.

If it’s underground that you feel most at home, then perhaps Mining is for you. Ores and rare metals can be found and given to someone with the Blacksmithing skill in order to make powerful weapons.

Pets
   
All great warriors seek companionship. In Dragon Oath you will find a unique world with many pets that are oftentimes as loyal as they are deadly. With up to 70 kinds of pets, each having their own character and personality that shows when their master is being attacked, a warrior will never truly feel alone on the battlefield.

Players may even find ways to breed their pets with those of their friends in order to make even more powerful ones. Doing this can lead to a variety of very interesting combinations of pets to make deadly allies in battle, or just a friend when you’re running through town!  Pets are able to learn many abilities either from growing stronger or finding trainers all over the world.

Equipments

When going into battle it is important for every warrior to be well protected. Dragon Oath features thousands of different kinds of equipment. Players are able to upgrade their weapons and armor by inlaying them with special items or even mystic gems that increase their attributes and effects. By wearing a set of specific armor the player will also experience bonuses unique to each set of armors.

Because everyone wants to be unique, there are many different fashions that players are able to choose from. There are even patterns that will be dropped by enemies that can be made into wonderful garments by the players themselves!

For those concerned with losing their hard-earned equipment in battle there are several ways to protect your items. Players are able to Inscribe, Bind, and set a Senior Password on their equipment. Each provides different options for your character to keep their items, or be more risky and have them dropped upon death! For those looking for a challenge or looking to get your hands on that shiny armor that Royalty is wearing, this can be a fun option!
     
Epic Story
   
All of Dragon Oath’s features revolve around its rich story. All of the game’s classes, cities, martial arts, and story plots are from the original Dragon Oath story. This unique world is based on ancient Chinese mythology that throws you into the midst of conflicting nations. Each of the classes is based on a demi-god who embodies a way of martial arts and calls upon them and their followers to shape the future of China.   

Trade System

In the ancient Chinese world, a merchant can come in many forms. As a warrior travelling the world, you are sure to gather many rare items you may not need, but certainly could use some coin in exchange. Players are able to trade directly with other players in any way they like. They may also peddle items and pets in cities to see the fruits of their labor. For the warrior looking to develop a strong market, players are even able to own their own personal shop in cities selling a variety of goods!

User-Friendly Design

Players will find themselves put to ease with the many helpful features available in Dragon Oath. One of the most helpful is the Auto Path Finding. With this function players are able to open the local area map and travel automatically to the selected location. During quests, NPC coordinates will be shown and the player can click on their coordinates to travel straight to them. This gives you time to read the detailed storyline involved in the quest while running to their location.
While fighting together, the leader of the team is the one who is really in charge, and is able to set the modes in which experience is granted to the team.

While exploring, the world map is beautifully detailed with descriptions in each area of enemy level ranges and what areas connect to others to help players avoid in the confusion of getting lost in this massive world!

Each class has their own mount specific to them, representing the uniqueness of each class and what they stand for. Even new players can join in on the fun in Da Li by mounting the Eagle for free at any time!
