PAX: Perfect World's RaiderZ and Neverwinter MMO
by Caitlin Cooke

This weekend I got a sneak peak at two MMORPGs that Perfect World is currently publishing – RaiderZ (MAIET Entertainment) and Neverwinter (Cryptic Studios).

We started off with some RaiderZ (pronounced Raiders), a free-to-play monster-hunting MMO that is insanely bright and colorful. The open world of RaiderZ is full of giant monsters waiting (literally) to be fought and includes beloved addictions such as crafting, enchanting, and mounts. Characters are basic (berserker, defender, sorcerer, and cleric) but unrestricted – players can choose skills from other character skill trees when leveling up, with over 350 skill combinations in total.  There’s also a full character creator for people like me who love making uggos (or hotties, if you’re into that kind of thing).

As free-to-play can mean many things these days, I asked what it meant for RaiderZ – and the answer I got was quite satisfying. They plan to have a good balance between payers and non-payers, meaning that the full game can be played and completed by anyone regardless of paying status. Cash options have not been determined yet but they’re looking to include payments for things like extra costumes and XP bonuses. As of now there are no PvP servers planned, however they may be open to adding it depending on player demand.
