Play Age of Wushu free, plus $20 in items with this code
by Niero Gonzalez

This week Destructoid is sponsored by Age of Wushu, a brand new free-to-play martial arts-themed MMORPG. The game takes you through 2,000 years of Wuxia history focused on leveling your individual fighting styles, so there are no character levels or character classes. It also has an unconventional offline component

To invite new players Snail Games is offering a Hero's Gift Pack, valued at $20. The pack contains 20x Dew Pills, 20x Life Expansions, 2x Pure Chi, one Reputation Scroll (5,000), Two "Nine Turning Hell" Pills (pardon?), and 2x Large Ruyi items.

Here's how to claim it:

1. Grab a unique free item code from Destructoid

2. Redeem it at this gift page on Age of Wushu

3. Create a character and check your in-game mail.  Enjoy!

Fun fact: we actually have someone on staff that practices Wushu IRL, our PC contributor Alex. I'm looking forward to his bare-fisted impressions.
