Dublin, Ireland – 11 th March, 2014WEBZEN, the pioneering free-to-play games developer and publisher, is pleased to announce that its Free-to-Play martial arts MMORPG, Age of Wulin will receive its very first expansion in May 2014.

“Immortal Legends” combines two separate expansions previously called "Ultimate Scrolls" and "Legends of Mount Hua" in other regions, and will be launched as one massive content update. This will allow the two great expansions to synergise from day one for an epic experience.

“Immortal Legends” will be released on the English, German and French servers simultaneously; providing three localised versions at the same time, adding 800,000 extra words per language, bringing the game’s total wordcount to over 4 million.

From May onward, the warriors of Age of Wulin will be able to demonstrate their Kung Fu skills in front of the whole server by taking part in the Mount Hua PvP Competition. Called after the legendary peak of one of China's Five Great Mountains, "Mount Hua Competition" provides a list of great additions to the gameplay. Players will have to fight their way to the top of the mountain, battling for the unique titles and outfits and legendary sword as the ultimate prize. The final fight of the tournament takes place on the icy summit of the mountain, where twelve best fighters on the server will be chosen per year to become an Immortal Legend.

Another great addition to the lore-rich PvP system is the Youyun Sixteen Prefectures that will add a brand new in-game event for up to 96 players at a time. Players of all levels will be able to choose fighting as the mercenaries for the Mongolian invaders, or loyal soldiers for the Ming Dynasty in this brutal battle for total domination.

Last but not least, the upcoming expansion will also add The Martial Brothers Mentor System, that will allow combat veterans and Kung Fu masters to take new players under their wings and show them everything Age of Wulin has to offer, with benefits.

In order to deliver more information about the feature-rich expansion, the Age of Wulin team will open a special mini-website with all the information about Immortal Legends in the near future.

Age of Wulin is an epic free to play MMORPG set in Imperial China, which revolves around the lore and practice of Chinese martial arts within the Wuxia universe. Gamers can join eight different factions (martial arts schools), each with their own unique style of combat, and experience deep character development.

Players are not bound by a traditional levelling system, instead they have the freedom to choose how they want to master their character by acquiring skills through school quests, and spying/stealing them from other characters or schools. Freedom of choice is a theme that runs throughout Age of Wulin as players can choose from a wide array of professions and align themselves with good or evil through their actions. The choices made will ultimately determine a range of different outcomes and provide for a personalized story, which is unique for every player.

Age of Wulin offers a unique MMORPG experience in a gigantic open world, including mass-scale PvP and PvE features such as guild warfare and battles for up to 1,300 players simultaneously.
