The “Sword & Fairy World” is based on the setting of “all things have spirits”, constructing an oriental fantasy world where monsters and humans coexist. With the blessing of spiritual energy, specific monsters are endowed with exclusive skills or buffs. Players need to rely on these monsters’ help to complete plot progression, explore the vast world, and even solve puzzles in various ways.

This game released a demo video and opened pre-orders on April 27. It is expected to obtain the approval number in China within this year.

Currently, there have been many attempts and applications of AI technology in the gaming industry, mainly focused on virtual player generation, dynamic NPC interaction, game content creation and other aspects. With the assistance of Azure OpenAI technology team, CMGE will be able to enhance its AIGC competitiveness and optimize R&D efficiency in intelligent NPC interaction, UGC editor and other scenarios.
