Swordsman is a free to play martial arts MMORPG. The story is set in China where you (the main character)have to defeat enemies and help out your allies.
The story in this game is very easy to follow and can make you feel really immersed within the game. This is one of the top reasons for why I love playing this game.
Each of the classes are very unique and most of them aren’t usually what you find in your stereotypical MMO. You choose your class later within the game as it follows along with the storyline.
