The action MMO featured elaborate dungeon crawls and boss fights and was positioned as a rival to Vindictus. Neowiz pushed the game through the beta stages last summer, although we hadn’t heard much about the game since then, suggesting that it didn’t make much of an impact in Korea.
Official Site: Asker Online
Asker Online is in open beta as of today, but what the heck is Asker Online? According to Steparu, it’s kinda like Vindictus. A brief review of the action MMO posted earlier this afternoon says that Asker involves grabbing a party and some quests in a town instance and then traveling to a dungeon instance to kill a boss.
Steparu also compares Asker to Dragon Nest and C9 in his textual description. You can see the title in action via his gameplay video that we’ve embedded after the break.
You could be forgiven for sort of forgetting about The Division. No matter how much it might have interested you at first, the game kind of dropped off the radar for half of forever. But now it’s on track for a winter beta and a launch next year, and we found out a bit about the game from E3, like how you can hunt rogue agents. (We also got our hands on it on the show floor, which might have been to its detriment.)
In other news:
- Asker Online will be starting a closed beta toward the end of the month, so that answers that.
- Lord of Vermilion: Arena launched in its native Japan.
- Inspirit Online will be kicking off a closed beta test on Jun 26th.
- A little bit of Gigantic news, as it starts its closed beta in August.
- The new test of Skyforge will give its founders a chance to use all the Founder’s Pack rewards.
- Last but not least, Revelation Online moved into its open beta.
We also have our usual list of betas past the break. Is something amiss therein? Why, tell us in the comments!
