Square Enix and United Front Games has officially unveiled Triad Wars, its upcoming PC open world online game. The PC title launches early 2015.
Set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, Triad Wars is an online open-world action-adventure game where your goal is to rise to power as a criminal kingpin of the Triad underworld. As an Enforcer and mastermind of your criminal enterprise, it’s up to you to construct an empire the likes of which your enemies would never dare to mess with.
On the mean streets of Hong Kong, however, brawn alone won’t be enough – you’re going to need money first, and for that you’ll need brains.
First you’ll need to establish your Turf and set up a range of lucrative, albeit questionable operations to build and expand your reach into the underworld – stacking dirty money to the sky, arming you to battle against rival gangs and claiming the streets before they do.
That being said, money alone isn’t going to win you any fights, or any face for that matter. To survive, you’ll need to hone your driving skills, get comfortable with a gun, and also be generally proficient at punching guys in the face. In Hong Kong, the action never stops and your rivals aren’t going down until you put them there.
Whether you choose to excel in extortion, hacking, money laundering, stolen cars, or even just good ol’ fashioned violence is strictly situational and will be representational of your playstyle. It’s your city to claim, and how you do it is entirely up to you. You can register for the closed beta here.
