RaiderZ, Perfect World’s answer to the question “why hasn’t the Monster Hunter MMO been localised for the west?”, is now available through Steam.
Unfortunately nobody’s yet answered our other pressing question, namely, “Is it said Raider Zed or Raiderzzzzz?”
RaiderZ is, to be blunt, very Monster Hunter-ish. Potential champions suit up, head out after massive creatures, and can join multiplayer parties of up to 15 players.
Equipment can be customised and crafted via merging, and characters evolve via skill selection.
Perfect World doesn’t seem to be throwing much marketing behind the MMO: the latest trailer the publisher has produced is this E3 2012 effort.
