| |

"Perfect World" or the "Company", a leading online game developer and operator based in China, announces the introduction of its first 2D real-time fantasy MMORPG, "Dragon Excalibur."

Developed by Perfect World's Shanghai R&D team, "Dragon Excalibur" is a 2D fantasy online game that runs on Raider, the Company's proprietary 2D game engine. The innovative 2D technology will allow the game to feature advanced and unique visual effects.

In "Dragon Excalibur," a fantasy world is created where human beings, demons and gods meet in a simulated historical scene. It ushers the players into a world of a voluminous historical novel where they can shuttle between different dynasties. The game players can also familiarize themselves with the simulated historical settings and can try to alter the fate of history with their courage in the game. The innovative play modes will bring a brand new game experience to the players.

Mr. Michael Chi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Perfect World, commented, "The upcoming launch of our new game 'Dragon Excalibur' is an important part of our strategy of diversifying our portfolio of games. Perfect World has been dedicated to providing a variety of innovative games to cater to a wide range of players with differing interests.

We believe that 'Dragon Excalibur' will be an important 2D real-time MMORPG for Perfect World and will bring an entirely new 2D game experience to players with its graphical designs, innovative play modes and rich content."
