IGG, one of China-based MMO publishers, today announced the official launch of its newly self-developed MMORPG Wings of Destiny to players worldwide for browsers independently and Facebook platform.
The company, known as the publisher of Moonlight Online, has recently been rumored in Chinese Sina Weibo to prepare for the Hong Kong IPO. This is not yet confirmed officially, but their ads of various games like Dawn of Darkness, Wings of Destiny, and Moonlight Online has been in display on Facebook’s sidebar every minute you browse through a page.
The game is described as a “bloody and violent” social MMORPG for hardcore gamers, and its gameplay faithfully hews to what a traditional fantasy MMO works. For example, players can choose four basic classes, use class-specific weapons, equipment and armor, and wind up exploring the virtual world or slay monsters to gain EXP or other materials.
Below is the official description of Wings of Destiny.
In Wings of Destiny, the battle between heaven and hell breaks through to the Earth-like realm of Galensya. It’s up to players to recover the titular Wings of Destiny, thereby restoring peace to the world. Choose one of four classes – Knight, Hunter, Mage, or Priest – and enter a fantasy world packed with stunning graphics, breathtaking art, an immersive story, and edge of your seat real-time combat action.
Impressive graphics aside, Wings also offers a chockfull of highly diverse and interactive features that will surprise and delight players of every kind. Several familiar features– such as Guilds and Quests– have been reinvented with a brand new social twist to encourage more collaborative play between members of the growing Wings community. For instance, the new Escort Quests challenges players to deliver carts of precious goods to distant locations in exchange for valuable Guild Resources. Sounds easy? Not so. On top of protecting your cargo from mobs of monsters and managing a tight time requirement, you and your Guild must also work together to ward off any pesky hijackers that are lusting after the prize. Players can also construct, upgrade and invest in Guild Bases to unlock special bonuses, as well as raid rival Guild Bases to wreak havoc, destroy buildings and steal resources.
For those interested in character and attribute customization, hundreds of collectible and upgradeable Souls and Cards will offer maximum flexibility in the face of every PvP and PvE situation imaginable. And, should you need to step away to take care of real world duties, the newly streamlined Auto-Combat System will keep you and your evolvable pets fighting strong.
Traditional features aside, Wings of Destiny is also proud to unveil several original in-game events such as the daily lunchtime Hot Springs, multi-stage Dungeons, Capture-the-Flag style Guild Wars, and much, much more.
IGG has officially launched Wings of Destiny in the US and Southeast Asian on both Facebook and IGG.com, gained almost half million MAU over the past week. Subsequent releases to European markets are also highly anticipated.
