MMORPG Astellia launches preorders, plans June closed beta, and rejects gender-locking


Upcoming MMORPG Astellia pumped out a ton of information with the launch of its new website and preorders for the game last night. Game packages will run from $40 to $100, depending on how much of a headstart and beta access (as well as cosmetics and other account buffs) you’d like to claim.

“Now some of you may be wondering, what on earth you’re going to do to entertain yourself between now and launch and we’ve got some excellent news in that regard. Our first Closed Beta is right around the corner! You’ll be able to get your first hands-on experience with Astellia through June 25th to July 1st. Participants will get the unique opportunity to help shape the development of upcoming content, as they explore the history of Astellia through the main story quests, along with the rewarding and intuitive crafting system, or crawl through one of the sinister dungeons in search of treasures.”

There are also some new dev blogs, including one outlining all of the game’s classes and utterly committing to the lack of gender-locking in the game once it’s ported westward. “Introducing this level of change affects nearly every aspect of Astellia’s development, requiring a full design phase to implement new character models, animations, and all of the supporting equipment for each class,” Barunson E&A says. “With this in mind, our current roadmap aims to have both the Assassin and Warrior classes unlocked by launch, with the remaining three included as free content releases upon completion.”
