The MOP Up: KurtzPel’s early access rolls out globally


While it was already accessible to North American players, the anime-styled KurtzPel is now open to a much wider audience thanks to this past week’s global rollout. European and Asian players can get in on the free-to-play fun!

“Our decision to open KurtzPel in Asia earlier than scheduled was a difficult one, but we will do our absolute best to make sure to provide a stable, global service,” the team said. “Due to our decision to open up to Asia a month earlier than expected, we weren’t able to fully localize KurtzPel for all languages in Asia.”
