Dou Po Cang Qiong is a 2.5D fantasy MMORPG that has been under development by
Changyou for the past 3 years. The game is adapted from the popular online
novel of the same name. Using the specially tailored PyroEnigma game engine
and other new technologies, the game recreates classic elements in the novel
including Yi Huo (PyroEnigma), Dou Qi Continent, and Alchemy. The game version
intensifies the usage of Dou Qi skills, allowing players who have reach a
required level to evolve their own "Wings of Dou Qi" and giving them access to
mid-air combat. In this game, players can control Yi Huo of various types just
as the main characters in the novel do, experiencing the intense combat among
the numerous forces of the unique Dou Qi Continent.

Mr. Xiaojian Hong, Changyou's chief operations officer, commented, "Changyou
continues to expand the portfolio of MMO games with the upcoming launch of a
new in-house developed game, Dou Po Cang Qiong. The game recreates the Dou Qi
Continent from the novel from which the game was adapted, enabling players to
experience the unique glamour of the Dou Qi world. We expect the game to
attract new players with its interesting and innovative gameplay, ultimately
further expanding our user base."
