Swords of Legends Online MMO, Based on Gujian Series, Is Westbound Later This Year


A new MMORPG is coming to Western countries (North America, Latin America, and Europe) from Chinese developers Wangyuan Shengtang & Aurogon, who announced to have partnered with Gameforge to launch Swords of Legends Online later this year.

The game is a 'fully remastered and improved' version of Gu Jian Qi Tan Online, which launched in China in July 2019. Indeed, Swords of Legends Online belongs to the acclaimed Gujian series, which spawned a series of games (the latest released in late 2018 on Steam to positive reviews) and even a TV series.
