Man, we just did our “mobile games to watch this year” piece, but we forgot about this one: It’s called Talion, it launched in Southeast Asia and Japan last fall, and now it’s coming westward, albeit slowly. Gamevil announced today that it’ll launch first in Australia before marching to other western territories, meaning registration for players down under is live today. Maybe the biggest news here isn’t the launch but that the studio is planning to support Aussie players better than most other MMOs.
“With the launch planned for late January, GAMEVIL is working to tailor marketing, promotions, and localization to establish Talion’s presence within the Australian MMORPG market. GAMEVIL has also set up local servers to ensure an optimal network connection for its users. Starting today, GAMEVIL is holding a pre-registration event to celebrate the Australian launch of Talion this month. Players who register now, will be given in-game currency and items as rewards.”
As we’ve previously covered, the game is being marketed as a 3-D open world MMORPG with with heavy character customization, multiplayer guilds and alliances, multiple PvP modes, “intuitive progression,” raiding, dungeons, gear collection, a single-player mode, and an autobattle system.
