Key Features

Innovative fighting system. As players journey through “Jade Empire,” they can upgrade their starting combat style or learn entirely new styles, depending on their gameplay preferences. Gamers can learn more than 20 fighting styles, each with unique strengths and weaknesses, including martial arts styles (Legendary Fist, Storm Dragon), magic styles (Paralyzing Palm, Dire Flame), and weapon styles (Twin Axes, Halberd and improvised weapons such as chairs). Each fighting style has its own speed, power, multistyle combination and form that ranges from punches and kicks to weapon strikes, mystical powers and even transformations into supernatural monsters. Combat is fast-paced, and real-time martial arts action characterized by rapid style changes as players and enemies alike seek out their opponents’ weaknesses.

Become a martial arts master. Players can jump into the story right away with a pregenerated martial artist or customize a character with specific play preferences. Each character has a unique appearance, individual voice set, and a powerful combination of fighting styles and ability scores. A player can focus on strength, speed or magic, or build a character with a balance of all three. As their characters progress, players can focus on a narrow channel of fighting styles and become dominant in these forms, or study a wide variety of styles adaptable to many combat situations. Players must choose whether to act for good or evil, and their decisions have consequences that precede them throughout the land, impacting their game experience.
