Fight your way through various quests and tasks as a Swordsman and hone your skills by challenging your opponents to a duel of death. This free-to-play game allows you to travel back in time and become a part of the mysterious Ming Dynasty.
There’s so much to learn about the ancient traditions of martial arts that even the most courageous warriors have to dedicate their entire life to becoming a samurai. Thankfully, Perfect World Entertainment (Neverwinter, Star Trek Online) is making sure that being a fearless warrior in Swordsman doesn't require quite as much dedication. The free-to-play MMORPG set in the Ming Dynasty will teach you everything there is to know about picking up new fighting styles, joining a clan and crafting new equipment. Battle it out against ruthless bandits or enemy players in real-time combat in this fantasy-meets-martial-arts game.
Before you can jump into action-packed battles and show everyone what your character is made of, you will have to pick a school to pledge allegiance to. Here, staying true to your core values and honoring those who have bravely fought before you is essential. In Swordsman, ten different schools await your answer. From the Shaolin to the Sun and Moon: Calling one of these schools your home will not only determine your path within the free-to-play game, but also which skills and talents are available to you. Every path has its own fighting style, after all.
You will come across like-minded players as you make your way through the many lands of the Ming Dynasty. The story of Swordsman will slowly unravel before your eyes once you manage to get through some of the online game’s story missions that are based on the infamous Louis Cha novels.
A true warrior must accept the fact that real strength lies in numbers, so keep in mind that grouping up with your allies might help your through tough challenges. Together with friends you can conquer new territory and expand the dynasty one rival stronghold at a time. If the gear you gather on your journey through this martial arts MMORPG does not meet your standards, just wait until you can craft your own legendary items and make yourself known as the best artisan the world of Swordsman has seen.
