Perfect World International has launched its latest major free expansion, Genesis.

The update adds two new classes, Mystics (magical summoners) and Seekers (two-handed sword users), both from the new Earthguard class unveiled in the game’s storyline. Runecrafting, a new manufacturing skill, will let players create new enhancement items. Five new territories have been added to Territory Wars, and guilds may now build their own guild base.

Perfect World also publishes Forsaken World, Legend of Martial Arts, Battle of the Immortals, Jade Dynasty, and Ether Saga Online.
