Age of Wulin is an upcoming MMORPG that is currently being developed by Snail Games, and will now be exclusively known as “the game in which a man paid $16,000 for a virtual sword.”
The developer of Age of Wulin recently held an online auction which included pre-paid time cards, rare mounts, and two virtual weapon sheaths which sold for $1,600 and $2,500. Of course, the most popular item in this auction was the virtual sword which sold for a whopping $16,000.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this story is the fact that Age of Wulin hasn’t been released. In fact, the game is only set to be available in open beta in Spring 2012. It will be unfortunate if the man who purchased this sword decides he doesn’t enjoy the game following its official launch.
