About Xuan Yuan Sword: The Gate of Firmament

Long ago, the Jade Emperor opened the gates of heaven so that worthy mortals could appeal to him and be granted divine powers in order to aid in the search for the emperor’s lost daughter. However, this holy gift was exploited and abused, bringing chaos to the mortal realm. The gates of heaven had to be resealed to protect from greater disaster, but since then, no mortals have been able to ascend and no gods could ascend at will to help them. Now it’s up to a small band of heroes in the mortal realm, each with their own motivations and led by the young Sikong Yu, to try and bridge the realms before peace is shattered forever.

Xuan Yuan Sword: The Gate of Firmament is a beloved entry in the long-running RPG series based on a mix of Chinese history and mythology. This standalone tale innovates with 3D presentation and real-time combat while retaining and evolving elements for which the series has long been revered. The Urn of Spirit Infusion allows demon synthesis and equipment refinement. The Guardian System allows captured demons to fight by your side. The Miracle System enhances your party’s attacks, and new battle formations further enrich strategic options in battle.
