(Redwood Shores, CA) November 14, 2012 -- Perfect World Entertainment, Inc. announced today the sixth expansion for Perfect World International (PWI) , its fantasy action MMORPG with over 50 million players worldwide is now live. The sixth expansion, PWI: Sirens of War , include across-the-board enhancements to skills, new quests, weapons, equipment, and much more. Most excitingly, Nation Wars invites players to a brand new battlefield that will open up PvP servers to all high level players, not just factions, and challenge even the most brilliant lieutenants and generals in intense 20 vs. 20 skirmishes. 

" Sirens of War brings exciting changes for veterans and beginners alike, and it really has never been a better time for players to dive in," said Tony Liu, Product Manager for the internationally praised free-to-play MMORPG title. "For the first time in PWI , Nation Wars brings an incredible server-wide battle system that allows thousands of players to simultaneously fight with and against each other. This will be one of the most incredible grand scale battle systems imaginable."

Every Friday and Sunday, from 8:20pm to 10:20pm server time, players level 60 plus can sign up to fight in Nation Wars and be assigned to one of the four nations: Frost, Flame, Light, or Darkness.  The crafty Overseer demon will randomly assign players to create armies for each nation as they are sent to their nation's respective headquarters. Once the war begins, the true nature of the strategic battlefield will be revealed on a new map with dozens of regions ready for each nation to fight over.  Military coins will be awarded based on each nation's success, as well as according to individual actions within each regional battle.

In PWI: Sirens of War , four great leaders from distant lands have come forth, bringing with them an endless war of nations, along with opportunities to win incredible power and glory. New features in the expansion include, among others:

•  Nation Wars - Brand new battlefield will allow thousands of players to fight for domination over hundreds of regions, in an incredible PvP system that force players to reinvent fighting skills, tactical intelligence, and strategic plans.

•  Revamped Skills - Skills have been modified across all classes, streamlining the pulse-pounding combat system to be faster, fiercer, and deadlier than ever.

•  New Weapons, Equipment, and Enhancements - Fight for glory and honor in Nation Wars and earn even more powerful weapons and equipment, while uncovering new methods to enhance and modify your existing equipment.

•  More Quests and Improved Leveling - Enjoy all-new story lines and an improved leveling experience, as this new expansion rolls out the red carpet for new players and veterans alike. Invite your friends to join you as you rediscover the joys of Perfect World!
