Today, Kakao Games and Bluehole Studio have announced that their flagship MMORPG, Elyon, will be getting its first beta opportunity in North America, Europe, and Oceania with the upcoming playtest. Applications are open from April 13-25, with the closed beta period running from May 6-10.
Over the past few years, Elyon (formerly known as A:IR) has gone through vast changes in many parts of its gameplay experience, from leveling flow adjustments to the conversion of the combat into an action-based system. While Bluehole Studio, Inc. is continuously working on making Elyon a great MMORPG, Kakao Games are preparing at an ever-increasing pace to release the game outside of Korea. They are excited to hear players’ feedback.
Those interested can apply for the closed beta by filling out a simple survey on the official website. Those selected for the will be notified separately via email.
Even if you are not selected during the application phase, you will still have plenty of opportunities to secure CBT1 access through various events and promotions. Additionally, all selected applicants will not only automatically receive access to CBT1 but can also invite one friend via a key included in the confirmation email.
Elyon is a fantasy MMORPG set in a world where two sovereign realms, Vulpin and Ontari, are at war to control “Elyon,” a portal that leads to paradise. Players will be able to customize their skills, craft gear, and engage in large-scale Realm vs. Realm battles to secure victory for their Realm.
Game Features included in the press release are as follows:
Extensive character customization
Create your own unique character with extensive customization tools and detail-oriented options. Want to go the extra mile? Take your look to the next level with the Equipment Dye system.
Deep skill customization
Modify the way your skills and character respond with Skill Attributes, Rune Attributes, and Mana Awakening.
Realm vs. Realm battles
Engage in large-scale Realm vs. Realm battles with the assistance of heavy artillery, mechas, and dragons!
Compete with other clans and establish yourself as the best of the best. Top clans get to control Dimensional Portals and collect taxes from any player that enters them.
Gather, craft, and trade
Make your own high-grade equipment and other consumables that will aid you in battle. Have unused materials? You can sell them via Trading and make a profit!
Players of opposing Realms can attack each other anywhere in the world. When in conflict zones, players can claim Laurel Wreaths of Greed, allowing them to attack any player, be it enemy or ally – but the use of such power comes with dire risks.
Dungeons, Areas, and Dimensional Portals
Enjoy a variety of PvP and PvE content, from classic 1vs1 to Free For All arenas to dungeons filled with clever mechanics. Dimensional Portals will lead you to planes of rich resources that will help you become stronger.
