Warlords Awakening just sunset in Korea, and now it’s coming to Steam early access here

As we reported in June, Paywith’s Warlords Awakening MMOARPG is coming westward, with a launch planned for October and an early access date now set for July 26th. The base game will run for $11.99, on up to the top bundle at just shy of 30 bucks.

What we didn’t immediately realize last month is that this game is a rebrand and remastering of Elite Lord of Alliance aka Kuntara Online: The Elite Lord’s Awakening aka ELOA, licensed to a new company. That would probably be fine, except that as MMO blogger Murasama has pointed out, the circumstances surrounding the Korean relaunch of the game last autumn and its recent sunset are concerning. In spite of what appeared to be a respectable playerbase and following in its home country, Playwith shut down the game in Korea just a week ago, and it’s not clear how long the western version will be supported.

It certainly wouldn’t be the first temport we’d ever seen, though for $12, it’s not much of a cash grab. Caution is probably advisable in the meantime, and y’all know the early access rules anyway.

Is this a new Trend? First Bless Online and now this? 99.9% of the Steam Games are already trash after they allowed anything on there. Normally I don’t live in the past but now I want my old Steam back. :(

Steam really makes it easy for the East to send their failed trash games to the West.

Why make something new when you can charge for an old game, sunset it when the initial rush dries up, release it in another region, and repeat over and over again.
