Sword of the New World: Granado Espada was developed by Hakkyu Kim, CEO of imcGAMES and creator of Ragnarok Online. In Korea, Sword of the New World not only won the award for Best Graphics but also captured the 2006 Presidential Award for Game of the Year. K2 Network now brings this amazing game to the West, and its localized version will feature an enhanced storyline, a more robust character creation process, better pacing, AI optimization, a more intuitive control system, hundreds of new quests and many other game enrichments. Set on a mysterious, dangerous continent with a story inspired by Europe's exploration and conquest of America, Sword of the New World is destined to dominate the world of MMORPGs by virtue of its groundbreaking design features, fast-paced gameplay and amazing graphics.
Sword of the New World gives players more options, variety, entertainment and challenges than any other MMORPG can by virtue of its unique design features. With multi-character control (MCC), players are able to command up to three characters simultaneously. No longer limited to playing one character at a time, players can instantly switch between their favorite character classes or control them all at once. Each one of those character classes - musketeer, wizard, fighter, scout, elementalist, and the unique player characters (UPCs) - acquires, over time, an impressive set of combat stances. Each stance offers unique skills, abilities and equipment options, making every class as powerful as it is versatile. With an entire family of such characters to develop, players will finally get to experience the sort of MMORPG gameplay they have been craving for years.
A New World of Action
The pace of battle in Sword of the New World is swift and exciting in both player vs. environment (PvE) and player vs. player (PvP) combat. Players will experience amazing adventures as they solo their team of characters in the wilderness, feud against individual rivals in family vs. family duels, group with other players in dungeons to defeat epic bosses, and unite with fellow clan members in massive city vs. city conflicts. This is Sword of the New World, and this is what MMORPGs should be.
A Killer Work of Art
Sword of the New World features a bold, original art direction inspired by the supremacy of Europe's Baroque period. Striking graphics make this title as thrilling to look at as it is to play, and the game's brilliant design allows it to run on a variety of systems. Handsome and beautiful character models, eerie and fantastic dungeons, breathtaking landscapes and magnificent cities all await players of this gorgeous game. Evocative music completes each unique area of the game world and makes Sword of the New World nothing less than a masterpiece of adventure.
