My blog entry last December 18 talks about the shutting down of Supreme Destiny Philippines on December 31, 2008. Then last monday E-games came out with a little compensation for their SD community and at the same time inviting the SD community to move to ZX Online. To those players who don’t know about this ZX Online, well it’s one of the newest MMO offering of E-games.
After reading the news I came to know that the first active 5000 Supreme Destiny players will get this ZX Online Limited Edition Kit. Inside the said special kit includes a detailed ZX Online: Journey to Immortality map and game guide, limited edition CD installer with screenshots and videos, and voucher codes. Not just that Active SD players will be given cool and exclusive in-game items throughout their ZX ONLINE adventures.
Here are the things you should do starting December 26 ,2008:
- Login to www.e-games.com.ph and sign in your account
- Go to My Account and click Online: Journey to Immortality Limited Edition Kit Reservation link.
- Fill out the form. Make sure you complete all necessary details
- Read additional information and know the options on how to get that Special KIT.
I finally installed the game client of ZX Online Philippines yesterday and made the manual patch as suggested by the CM. Running the game went smoothly though some gamers thought and reported they are having error in launching the game. I think this is due to this message “FAILED TO CONNECT TO THE UPDATE SERVER shown on the game client. All you have to do is ignore it and then just click Start game. Since this is Closed Beta Test, game client might have some minimal issues.
The First Glance
I’m currently playing the ZX online for several hours now. So far it’s pretty much making to the “Go Ahead and play the game” first impression. It has good graphics too.
Since the developer of the game was also the one who developed Perfect World Philippines which is Perfect World Co., a leading online game developer and operator in China. Allow me to somehow compare the game with Perfect World Online. I would say the environment looks similar with Perfect World Philippines but of course I still assumed game play experience will be different. Unlike PW, ZX Online lacks of character customization, the creating of your character which is easy and in-fact you just need to choose the gender, face and hairstyle for your character. You can choose from 7 different faces and hairstyles. Then your adventure starts as a young paladin.
Like what I usually say, it is still early to make a comment on the game play.
Since it’s still on its closed beta test and I still haven’t seen any premium items, it would be better to just wait on what would be the offering of E-games on the ZX online Premium shop.
Do you want to explore new MMORPG to hit the country? Well, Closed Beta test client download for ZX online Philippines is here. Make sure you download the client in advanced before the Closed Beta of the game as download will take awhile especially those with slower connections.
