The MOP Up: Echo of Soul returns

    
5

Korean MMO Echo of Soul is now back on Steam early access after the title was shut down back around 2015 and 2016. It’s 40% off and should be in testing for about a half-year.

Echo of Soul Online is the first stage of a global project starting from North and South America,” said Blue Potion Producer Jo Jeongik. “At the same time it will abandon existing pay-to-win method and offer various contents for global users with a new game and pricing mode.”

This is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have, drop us a tip)!

Echo of Soul was absolutely terrible. I didn’t even get to the point where P2W could be a concern, I was done with it long before that.

I wonder how many months it will last before they shut it down. I give it 8. xD

Is there an analysis of the difference between Echo of Soul available on Steam and Echo of Soul available on aeriagames website?

They claim that gems for your gear are not tired to any cash shop purchase and you can get almost anything by just playing the game. Cosmetics are the only thing in their cash shop. I do remember how you had to buy items so gem upgrades would not fail in the old game.

Ugh, I hate that mechanic. It took me a while to figure out it costs far far less to buy the thing at whatever level, than it is to rank it up myself. Then I stopped playing those games shortly after I noticed all the other flaws.
