There release date The release of Sword and Fairy 7 on Game Pass is set for July 6, 2023, so it’s still quite a ways off, but it’s apparently already in agreement with Microsoft. The game has already been available on PC and consoles since last November and represents another example of the Chinese developers’ obvious passion for the action RPG genre, in this case also made with substantial technical tools.
It is part of a series that is currently running quite long and is appreciated above all at home, but has also achieved excellent results in the West. The setting, inspired by Chinese mythology, and especially between this episode, introduces a fairly well-structured real-time action combat system.
