NetEase Games announced four of the epic titles set to showcase at E3. This year’s expo, on the back of a challenging year for the whole video game industry, is the starting pistol for what NetEase hopes to be its most successful year to date.
From Racing Master to Total War Battles: WARHAMMER and The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War to NARAKA: BLADEPOINT, the diverse array of games on the show floor once again positions NetEase as the leading provider of self‐developed PC and mobile games.
Each of the titles heading to this year’s show brings something completely unique to the event. From Racing Master’s intense, authentic racing with precision-engineered vehicles, to choosing your Legendary Lord, assembling your armies and testing your tactical abilities against all others in Total War Battles: WARHAMMER; there’s set to be a game for everyone.
NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is an exciting new take on the Battle Royale genre: with player experience built around three core pillars of gameplay; speed, agility and close-quarters combat. To facilitate this, players use grappling hooks to traverse trees, buildings and all manner of temples and structures littered across Morus’ stunning environment.
Coupled with versatile parkour skills, players can quickly scale anything in sight, offering huge variations in strategy — not to mention tactical verticality — to each pulsating battle.
NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is developed by 24 Entertainment and published by NetEase Montreal. To learn more about all these titles, and what NetEase has in store for 2021, head to the official website.
Lord of the Rings: Rise to War
The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is an officially licensed mobile strategy game based on the iconic trilogy of books by J.R.R. Tolkien. The game will recreate the fictional world in a visually stunning and completely faithful rendition.
Epic tales of old, be it of love, friendship, or glory, are in days bygone. A new War of the Ring is on the horizon, and the fate of Middle-earth now falls into your hands. An irrepressible dark power has been growing and seeping through every inch of Middle-earth. From Minas Tirith to Mount Doom, each faction is desperate to seize control over the One Ring and take dominion over Middle-earth once and for all.
Total War Battles: WARHAMMER
Set in Games Workshop’s world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and inspired by Creative Assembly’s Total War series, Total War Battles: WARHAMMER is a strategy epic packed with magic, monsters, and the mayhem of mass battles.
A mysterious island has arisen from the ocean depths. Rich in Warpstone, the malevolent rat-men of the Skaven eye it greedily. They cannot be allowed to exploit this dangerous magical ore, so each race across the Warhammer world has dispatched their finest commanders and most powerful warriors to conquer the island for themselves. The scene is set…let battle commence!
Racing Master has been developed using the Unreal 4 engine and Codemasters’ proprietary EGO technology. Players have access to over 60 hyper-realistic cars from brands including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Koenigsegg, and Aston Martin. Race against other players in cities around the world to become a racing champion.
Steeped in automotive culture, Racing Master allows players to race, tune and build their ultimate car collection. Customize vehicles with real-world parts from leading manufacturers and set the handling from casual to simulation for maximum control. Racing Master is the definitive racing experience with both tilt and touch options, fully optimized across every platform.
