Jade Dynasty, Swordsman Online Shutting Down
In a surprising (or not surprising if you’ve taken a look at their population numbers recently) move by Perfect Entertainment, both Swordsman Online and Jade Dynasty have been announced to be shutting their doors to players on June 5, 2018.
Shut Down Notice
Perfect World Entertainment posted individual announcements on each respective website. They read relatively the same, stating:
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the shutdown of all Swordsman (SWM) servers on June 5th, 2018. On that day, your SWM character will no longer be accessible.
This was a very difficult decision to make, but we are grateful for everything that you have put into the game and all the wonderful communitites that have come from SWM. We no longer feel there is room for SWM to grow, but the developemnt teams are moving on to bigger and better things! As amends to our most dedicated fans, we are making sure to offer refunds for the last few months.
Effective today, the ability to purchase Gold for SWM will no longer be available. All SWM Gold purchases from Februrary 1st, 2018 through May 1st, 2018 will be converted into Arc credit and allocated to your account. These credits can be used in any of the other PWE games. Arc Points used towards SWM between this same time period will also be refunded to your Arc point balance before the end of the month.
Thank you for your loyalty to Swordsman over the last four years.
Cash Shop Currency
In preparation for their shut down, Perfect World Entertainment have disabled each game’s ability to purchase cash shop currency. In addition, those who had already purchased premium currency between February 1 and May 1 can expect their entire purchase to be converted into Arc credit and applied to their account for use in other PWE games.
