[ 31 December 2009, Hong Kong ] NetDragon Websoft Inc. (“NetDragon”, with its subsidiaries collectively the “Group”; Stock Code: 777), a leading online game developer and operator in China, announced that it launched the first open beta testing for its 2.5D fantasy MMORPG, Tian Yuan, on Dec.23, Beijing Time.
Tian Yuan, which incorporates myths from the glorious Tang Dynasty, was created after three years’ effort by the team who made the classic Eudemons Online. Players can join one of the four major schools of Chinese martial arts and fulfill special tasks with different spiritual creatures. Moreover, they can also experience joys that cannot be found elsewhere, such as becoming immortal through practice and undergoing reincarnation.
As one of the most significant products of NetDragon this year, Tian Yuan combines the perfect game setting, music and art. Enriched by eastern mythology, this game will be an entirely new gaming experience for players, changing how they view the world with a unique visual and audio experience.
