Meanwhile, there is a dynamic weather system to add to the immersion. With this, the weather will change based on several factors such as the time of day and others. Not only that, but the NPCs will react to these weather effects too, so if you want to approach them, you have to take that into consideration.

And just like in any traditional Chinese Kung Fu movie, you and other players will be able to fly all over the place just like Peter Pan, even into space too. The game also includes a Mind Mode, which allows you to see events in the past as well as the future.

All of that is, as mentioned, brought to life through absolutely stunning graphics. Check out a few screenshots of Eastward Legend: The Empyrean below to bathe in all its glory:
