6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has travelled to the fictional lands of Jade Empire: Special Edition for a new feature article. In the game players face powerful human and supernatural foes, learn magical martial arts and weapons styles, and discover the darkest secrets of the world. The article includes an overview of Jade Empire's features and a brief guide to characters stats, conversations, and combat.

Jade Empire is a fictitious land ruled by the mysterious Emperor Sun Hai. Two decades ago, he and his elite Lotus Assassins took extraordinary steps to end a 10-year drought. Sun Hai ordered his brothers, Sun Kin and Sun Li, to lead an attack on your people and defeat the Water Dragon they worshipped, in hope of ending the drought. He achieved that goal, but his brothers were lost and the dead were prevented from reaching the underworld, causing their spirits to roam the land.

Your idyllic way of life is interrupted when the Lotus Assassins, now under the command of the powerful Death’s Hand, attack Two Rivers with flying machines that rain destruction on the school and the village. The invaders kidnap Master Li and take him to Jade Empire’s capital, Imperial City. Accompanied by other warriors you’ve met, you set out to rescue him. As you learn more about Jade Empire’s complex back story, however, you soon realize that you’re not sure who or what you can trust.

Along the way, you become more powerful, honing your abilities as you complete quests, defeat enemies, and recover Essence Gems that you plug into your Dragon Amulet to augment your abilities. The amulet was yours as a child, but it was broken into pieces that were scattered across the empire; find them to increase the number of Essence Gems that can be active simultaneously.
