Echo of Soul resurfaces in North America under new publisher

Free-to-play fantasy MMO Echo of Soul has had something of a turbulent existence, to say the least: It first launched back in July of 2015 but sunsetted in Korea just a couple of months later, followed by a sunset in China shortly thereafter. The game resurfaced in Korea and China a year later, and it’s been running steadily in Europe under Aeria Games. While it’s not entirely clear what ultimately happened to the North American version of the game, what is clear is that wherever it went, it’s back now, as the game has appeared on Steam under unknown publisher Blue Potion Games as part of the platform’s Early Access program.

It’s hard to tell how this relaunch version stacks up against Aeria’s Echo of Soul Phoenix in terms of available content, but the Early Access Q&A on the game’s official Steam Page says that the game will release with Tower Challenges, solo dungeons, three-player group dungeons, limitless dungeons, daily challenges, and randomized dungeons, as well as field hunting and PvP. Whether the game will meet more success than its previous incarnations remains to be seen, but if you’re interested in checking it out for yourself, Echo of Soul will be available to download and play on Steam on November 21st.

Well, *something* needed to go head-to-head with Bless Online, right?

Aeria already has this and it’s population is already minimal. Why would they publish another version? @_@

Technically, Aeria’s version is supposedly the European version (even though it’s not IP blocked and people can play it from anywhere as far as I know).

Some ‘company’ is looking to buy the rights to a game dirt cheap, finds some generic MMORPG and think it looks good enough and so they go for it. These couple of guys probably got it for next to nothing and feel that they’ll make some money off it no matter how bad it does.

There are some games that could do well if brought back and worked on, though this isn’t one of those games. Looking at their other self published game I doubt these guys here plan to put much work into this though anyway, they have some minimal coding skills to keep it up and coasting but I wouldn’t expect a lot more.

No offense to them or anything, just saying what it looks like. I’d love for them to prove me wrong :D

I hate to say but I’d almost like a hastily translated and ported game that hasn’t come out here. At least it’d be something different.

I guess you’re being sarcastic.
