Perfect World Entertainment's free-to-play MMO Swordsman launched a closed beta June 16. Now, the game is open to more players in the open beta on the game's site.
Anyone who previously participated in the closed beta will receive their rewards for doing so today. With the open beta, in-game stores are now live, and cross-server functionality will allow for more PvP combat.
Based on Louis Cha's popular martial arts-based novels, Swordsman lets players join 1 of 10 martial arts schools, each of which let the character develop skills from three different trees. Players can then engage rival schools, as well as the Ming government, in combat.
