BEIJING, Sept. 12 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Recently, Beijing Perfect
World Co., Ltd. agreed a formal cooperation contract with CFGC concerning
both the 3D MMORPG called "The War of the Red Cliff," which will be
launched in the fourth quarter by Beijing Perfect World, and the cognominal
film shot by reclaimed director John Woo.
Both sides reached an agreement of cooperation covering both the film
and online game on August 7, 2007. The two parties will not sign an
official contract until negotiations continue in one month. The release
schedule for the film version of "The War of the Red Cliff" has been
scheduled for release in 2008. There is no doubt that the film, with its
focus on the history surrounding the three kingdoms era, will be a big hit
with the majority of film goers, as well as three kingdoms fans, especially
since multiple well- known celebrities from all over China are involved in
the production, including Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshivo, Chen Chang, Fengyi
Zhang, Jun Hu, Dawei Tong, Chiling, and Vicki.
Gamers are constantly raising their expectations in regards to the
online- game version of "the War of the Red Cliff," Beijing Perfect World's
second large-scale MMORPG in 2007, since the Company's first announcement
about it. The game has already seen itself listed as one of the "Top Ten
Favorite Online Games" at the Jin Ling Awards at the 2007 China Joy event,
which is regarded as the Oscars of China's online gaming industry.
Meanwhile, the formal publishing number has been promulgated by the
General Administration of Press & Publication of the PRC, and the relative
works on R&D are in positive processes.
In terms of the cooperation and contract signing, Zhu Qi, vice
president of Beijing Perfect World, revealed, "The Company has made every
effort to bring the whole world excellent online games that stay true to
traditional Chinese culture. This principle will be used in the newly
produced game "the War of the Red Cliff". Both CFGC and John Woo are
involved in the shooting of the film, and we are delighted to be in the
coordination with them, so as to strengthen the influence Chinese games
pose on the world at large. Through this chance, the contract signing has
finally turned the dream into reality. After this, we will endeavor on

Introduction of "Perfect World"
Perfect World ( http://www.w2i.com.cn )is a fantastic 3D online game
presented by Beijing Perfect World Technology Co., Ltd. Starting from a
traditional Chinese myth that Pangu built the sky, land and people, the
game created a fantasy world and took players to times of old, with its
epic backgrounds and grandiose story content.
As a wholly homemade masterpiece, "Perfect World" covers many creative
elements that are leading at home and abroad. The large and seamless map
completely clears up regional limitations; flying status makes the 3D war
in a real sense possible; while the function that lets large factions build
cities by themselves allows players to have fun while creating a whole new
world. The private home system enriches the communication between players.
Allowing them to make their own armaments lets them possess unique weapons.
Also, there are more systems available like individualized image setups,
freely designed fashion systems and a buddy system. Some designs are very
interesting: flying kites and fishing, for players who may want to relax;
carriages and yachts, for those that want to kick back. All these features
allow players to appreciate the magnificent scenery in "Perfect World."
