The first Closed Beta Test for the upcoming oriental fantasy MMORPG called Asta The War of Tears and Winds starts late this month. This title heavily focuses on its' RvR content and features a lot of playable races between the two factions. The teaser trailers look really awesome, I just hope that game itself is as good as the trailers. With that said, check out the two teaser trailers along with the full Closed Beta Test schedule right after the cut.
Yulgang 2 Online also known as Scions of Fate 2 Open Beta kicks off today and MGAME Korea finally released the full version of the teaser trailer that was recently released early last week. The trailer looks really neat, it reminds me of those old school Chinese dancing with the swords and ninja jumping around kind of movies. The latest trailer also gives you a general idea of what kind of oriental action combat MMORPG you're going to be getting yourself into. After fully watching it myself, it makes me want to go ahead and jump in the Open Beta.
ENTWELL just launched a brand new teaser page for their upcoming fantasy PvP based MMORPG called Core Online. For those of you want to jump straight to the website then follow this link. The new teaser page contains a library of gameplay videos of all the playable classes in Core Online. The game has really pretty looking graphics, the 2nd Closed Beta Test is supposedly scheduled to start some time this month. I will let you guys know once the date has been made public.
Eclipse of Eden (JP) also known as Lune of Eden (KR) will be going into a week long Open Beta test starting on January 10th. This is the perfect opportunity for you guys to test out this non-targeting action combat MMORPG! I've actually tried out this title myself and did a mini Lune of Eden Preview but it wasn't my type of game, perhaps you will have better luck with it. Their website also offers an Open ID registration using a Japanese Yahoo account, so if you happen to have one of those, registering should be easy. Other than that registering is very simple mainly because it doesn't even have a Japanese captcha!
Square Enix just launched the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Tester Application page for those of you who want to sign up right away, then go on ahead and jump on over to http://entry.ffxiv.com/beta/na. Players who have previously played FFXIV and met the Legacy campaign requirements will automatically have access to the phase 1 of the beta test. Square Enix also released a brand new teaser trailer showing off what happened to the survivors after their previous world was destroyed.
Some of you are probably aware that Mabinogi 2 Arena is a joint project between Nexon Korea and NC Soft Korea. There are currently 100 people working on the game. To speed up the progress of the game, NC Soft Korea invited the M2A developers of Nexon Korea to their building. By working together they are planning on creating the best game in the world. Sounds like Captain Planet style! Anyway, I wish them luck. I decided to give them a nick name called Nexon Soft, it sounds pretty cool. Hopefully they start their first CBT or Alpha Test soon without an NDA!
