RPGs 2004 @ UGO

A new article on UGO provides a brief look at the upcoming role-playing games of 2004, including Jade Empire, Fable, X-Men Legends, and more. Here’s an excerpt from their section on Jade Empire:

BioWare is one of the hottest RPG creators out right now, especially with the success of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Star Wars fans, RPG lovers, and a somber mixture of the two gobbled up massive quantities of this title, making this title Game of the Year and RPG of the Year on many gamers’ lists. Jade Empire is the next project on the plate of super developers BioWare, and is being described as KotOR with martial arts and an Eastern flair. Instead of the galaxy-spanning storyline of KotOR, Jade Empire will focus on a mythological China, based in myths because all of the Chinese legends will be true here. Players will have access to magic and supernatural abilities, and will encounter gods and demons and dragons. Your character will start out at a stronghold, which will house the characters that you defeat and/or recruit, much like in the Suikoden series. You’ll be able to utilize these followers for a number of things, including sending them out on missions to accomplish on your behalf.
