Justice Online is a PC MMORPG that launched in China in 2018. Above all, it convinces with its strong graphics and action-packed fights. In 2022, the game will be brought to the West by developer NetEase.
What kind of game is this? Justice Online is the flagship MMORPG from NetEase, best known to us for Revelation Online and the development of Diablo Immortal. The world is based on a wuxia novel and offers exciting “martial arts” fights.
Justice Online is characterized above all by this content:
- An extremely detailed character editor with no gender lock
- At least 8 different classes – 7 at release and most recently the Hong Yin class
- An action-packed combat system without fixed targets
- A very deep story with many decisions and cutscenes
- Cool moves with air jumps and races on water
- A detailed housing system with own fields and animal husbandry
- Dungeons and Raids in PvE
- PvP in different arenas, possibly also in the open world
- A beautiful graphic that relies on ray tracing and mesh shading
Basically, Justice Online is reminiscent of Swords of Legends Online, which was released in 2021. However, it relies on a more dynamic combat system, a completely open game world and more varied biomes, such as deserts or rocky wastelands with lava.
Release Q4 2022 in the west
When is the game coming to us? NetEase is planning the release of Justice Online for the fourth quarter of 2022 (i.e. October to December). A western and international release of the MMORPG is planned. However, it is unclear how much of the current content will already be included in the western version. Because while the release for the international market is planned, there should be further updates for Justice Online in China.
How is the game financed? In China, similar to Swords of Legends, it is based on an initially free version, for which you later have to purchase hours of game time. What the payment model will look like in the West is currently unknown.
Is the game Pay2Win? This accusation exists because you can buy equipment directly for real money. They’re no stronger than the items you can get in-game, but they’re a direct shortcut to endgame. It is not known whether this will also be the case with the western version.
Can you play Justice Online from Europe? No. For a time, you could create an account for Justice Online with a western phone number and enjoy the free time. NetEase now only accepts phone numbers from China itself. But if you can organize such a number through contacts, you can try the MMORPG now. However, there is no English patch for the game.
