Age of Wushu sets NA release on February 1, 2013
Age of Wushu is already a certified hit in its homeland China, according to its developer, with 10 million registered players to-date.

Action is fast and combo-oriented, as what is the norm in martial arts.

The Elite pre-sale package, for example, costs $9.99 and comes with a full version of the free online rpg, exclusive in-game items and guaranteed access to next month’s initial beta launch.
This initial beta will last until November 25, after which three Limited Edition Gift Sets will be released – a Deluxe, Premium and Collector’s Edition. Depending on the bundle, the gift sets will provide exclusive content, digital items and even real world collectibles. All three will provide guaranteed access to the second beta launch on December 20 as well as an “Exclusive Access Period” code that gives the user a few days headstart before the February 1 world launch.
