'9Dragons' Content Update Adds New Map and PvP Event

by Rainier on March 24, 2008 @ 1:49 a.m. PDT

9Dragons is an authentic martial arts MMO set in ancient China, where you, through training and quests, reach your destiny as a master of the martial arts.

The Liaodong area expansion represents a new direction for 9Dragons – a journey into history and the age-old Sino-Japanese conflict. Players must come to the aid of the villagers who must deal with the “invaders from the east” and vanquish their mystical Samurai monsters, such as the legendary Oni and the magical Phantom.

Liaodong offers a whole new map area, with new NPCs, new monsters, new items and new quests. And with new rewards and opportunities for advancement, Liaodong is the place to be if you’re in ancient China and a martial artist!

Storm vs. Storm is an exciting new team-based PvP event. But this is not your ordinary PvP. This is about territory, control and hard cash. That’s right, the winners own the territory and they get a tax on all transactions in their territory, so it’s worth more than pride to win in Storm vs. Storm.

So gather your hero bands and leagues and get ready to fight for pride and control. This is going to be fun… and profitable! Oh, and by the way, winners get some great treasure items, too.

9Dragons is free to play with an in-game Item Mall where players can purchase various items with Acclaim Coins. Items can be purchased in-game using a simple click and buy interface. Players can easily purchase Acclaim Coins with their credit card, home or cell phone, bank account, or a variety of other payment methods using safe and trusted online payment services to ensure secure online transactions. Prepaid cards are also available in select locations worldwide.

Players have the option of joining one of 6 starter clans: Shaolin, Wu-Tang Clan and The League of Beggars which are loyal to The Imperial Emperor of China, while The Brotherhood of Thieves, Heavenly Demon, and Sacred Flower Clan (for women only), are opposed to his rule. Three special advanced clans, which will be fully controlled by players in respect to leadership and alignment, will be added to the game as the story progresses. Since each free account allows up to 3 character slots, it’s easy to create multiple characters, join different clans, and experience new gaming experiences based on each clan’s different Kung Fu style and unique philosophy.

To ensure that Western gamers would be able to relate to a storyline based in Ming Dynasty China, the game lore and story elements of 9Dragons have been completely adapted and remastered by best-selling author and Hollywood screenwriter Steven-Elliot Altman.

Features :

  • Each clan has more than 400 unique martial arts styles and over 500 different items of martial arts weaponry. Some clans use unarmed combat while other focus on weapons mastery or even assasination!
  • Featuring more than 450 various quests, 9Dragons will be adding 20 to 40 quests per month.
  • The animation uses cutting-edge Key-frame animation technology. Players can punch, kick, chop, spin or execute any of the moves they would see in a martial arts movie.
  • Mobs and monsters run away from superior players, chase inferior players or commit suicide when they get fatally wounded. Some monsters will change their appearance to deceive players. Some use transformation skill to get bigger and stronger.

New players are welcome to sign up for a free Acclaim account to experience the amazing online world of 9Dragons and strive to become masters of Kung Fu.
