NetEase Announces Adventure RPG Game “Shediao”

Chinese tech and gaming giant NetEase announced a new role play game titled “Shediao” on Friday and gave audience its first look at the new release.

“Shediao” originates from the famous novel “The Legend of The Condor Heroes” written by Jin Yong (Louis Cha). The homepage of the official game website shows six points-in-time, each of which corresponds to a different place and animation. Differing from the typical method of forming teams, the new game emphasizes a single player’s adventure and exploration.

According to NetEase‘s financial report, its revenue in 2021 was 87.606 billion yuan ($13.12 billion), 72% of which came from online game services. NetEase said at that time that it would soon launch new titles such as “Naraka: Bladepoint” and “Diablo Immortal”.
