Swords of Legends Online, an MMORPG inspired by Chinese legends that has received a fair bit of hype will be releasing very soon. July 9th, in fact, which is a weird thing to hear for an MMORPG fan. We're used to waiting years for anticipated games to come out, and now we have one in July and another in August in New World? It's certainly a weird and exciting time to be a MMORPG fan.
Players will be able to choose from six initial classes. Each of the classes has two roles that players can gear up and switch between depending on what exactly they need at that point in time, which is pretty cool. The game first launched in 2019 in China as Gu Jian Qi Tan Online, and apparently, the Swords of Legends version is the "fully remastered edition" of the game.
Players will be fighting in an ancient war between light and darkness and eventually go on a quest where they unlock the power of the Ancestral Sword. It's kind of funny as it sounds extremely cliched and lame, but then you realize that the story that this game is telling is literally ancient, and that these legends inspired other stories through the ages. If you want to go down a rabbit hole, start reading articles on the Seinfeld Effect, where Seinfeld is now seen by many who didn't grow up with it as boring and passe, primarily because every comedy copied Seinfeld due to how popular and successful it was.
Anyways, Swords of Legends Online will be released on July 9 through Steam. It's currently available to pre-purchase for $39.99.
