Announced back in January, Nexon’s Riders of Icarus was promoted as a free-to-play action adventure MMORPG with “exhilarating aerial combat.” The first beta took flight that same month; now, the company has announced that the second phase of its closed beta test will take place for a week beginning this Thursday. The event will include more players from around the globe:
“Ride with more players as we expand our beta test to include Europe, South America, Australia and the Oceania territories in Phase 2 of the Closed Beta test.”
Testers who hit the proper markers during the event will be rewarded with collectible in-game capes. Expect big changes to the mounts (as in, you’re getting them sooner because that’s pretty much why you’re playing the game) as well as adjustments to the interface, combat AI, and solo difficulty.
