(Redwood City, CA) Dec. 18, 2013 -- Perfect World Entertainment, Inc. a leading publisher and operator of free-to-play massively multiplayer online games, is pleased to announce that the next expansion to a popular MMO game Perfect World International (PWI) - New Horizons - is  now live.

New Horizons introduces players to many new features and updates to PWI. The new Reawakening system allows players to take their strongest characters back in time to experience the world’s beginnings with more stats, better gear, and a higher growth potential than ever before. The addition of the War Avatar system brings a fun new way to customize characters via stat-boosting cards, allowing for more diverse builds to play the way you want to. Players will also get to experience two brand new zones that advance the epic saga of Perfect World, but it will be up to players working together as a whole to reach the end-game! With new quests, skills, instance/event queuing, and launch day events, you can expect this next expansion to take the PWI experience to new horizons!

New Horizons brings many fresh new features to one of our most popular titles of all time,” says Tony Liu, Product Manager at Perfect World Entertainment. “We’ve just celebrated our 5 th anniversary and we have more to come! We can’t wait for our players to get their hands on this expansion, and experience this new level of excitement brought to PWI . With New Horizons , we’re once again proving our commitment to provide the best free-to-play MMO experiences on the market.”
