BioWare портирует консольную (XBOX) Jade Empire на PC с дополнительным контентом.
Strategy Informer: What kind of new addictions will this pack bring?
Diarmid Clarke: Players will really enjoy our new fighting styles which are exclusive to the PC version. Iron Palm is a sumo-like style: it’s very slow but does devastating damage. Another new style is Viper, and that one is not very powerful, but it’s extremely fast and poisons your enemies over time.
Strategy Informer: Will you be adding any other improvements to the game?
Diarmid Clarke: Other than the high resolution graphics and stunning new visual effects, we’ve also introduced a very intuitive keyboard and mouse control system. Players can re-map the controls as they see fit, or they can use a gamepad if they prefer. We’ve also enhanced the gameplay by improving the AI, so the fights are a lot more dynamic as enemies evade, block and fight smarter. You’ll have to be a lot more strategic in your tactics and your choice of fighting styles in the PC version. In fact, we’ve even added a new difficulty level that will pose a greater challenge to even the most experienced of Jade players.
Strategy Informer: We've heard that there will be new monsters appearing, could you tell us a bit about these?
Diarmid Clarke: There will indeed be some new baddies you’ll have to watch out for, yes. One of my favorites is the Rhino Demon: he’s this big, brutish guy who will run right through you with his horn rush, or squash you with his big stomp attack. He’s pretty immune to magic so you’ll have to get in pretty close to attack him, but his long reach could easily put an end to you.
