Triad Wars Overview

Triad Wars is an asynchronous action MMO where players fight to rise to the top of Hong Kong's criminal underground. Asynchronous means that players do not inhabit the same world space, but meet indirectly by attacking each other's bases. It's set in the same universe as Sleeping Dogs, but instead of playing as an undercover cop, players are members of the Triad in search of power by any means necessary. Customize your criminal character and fight with a mix of martial arts combat and third-person gunfights. Develop your skills through a card-based skill tree, refining your style. Protect your territory by extorting money and disposing of any thugs that threaten your reign. Recruit members to your gang and manage your base, upgrading buildings and directing your underlings to perform dirty jobs. Dress like a boss of the underworld by shopping for various cosmetic through the game's cash shop. And invade other player's bases to assert your dominance on the streets of Hong Kong.

Triad Wars Key Features:

  • Asycnhronous Gameplay - play in your own Hong Kong universe, interacting with players indirectly by raiding their base.
  • Base Raiding - attack other player's bases and assert your domination of the Honk Kong underworld.
  • Martial Arts Combat - develop your prowess by studying martial arts and earning skills through one of several trees, or pick up a firearm and point-and-click.
  • Base Management - construct your criminal empire by improving buildings and ordering underlings to undertake missions.
  • Various cosmetic - various highly stylized cosmetics that can be purcahsed from the cash shop with in-game currency.
