As promised, Astellia Online’s initial closed beta test has begun as of this morning.
“Closed beta testers will be providing the studio with invaluable data across a number of features and mechanics including progression speed and updated combat systems. Players will also assist the team in creating a baseline for how the various game systems are being used as they journey through normal content and dungeons, trying out acquired gear and more. Saturday will offer players a chance to try out high-end gameplay in Astellia with a level boost and suitable equipment. While there will be separate North American and European servers at launch, CBT players will be working to break the server during the technical stress test when everyone, regardless of location, will be stuffed into a single server to put it through its paces. This is being done to apply as much pressure to the system as possible.”
Specifically, the first test will end at 11:00 a.m. EDT on July 1st, so you’ll have plenty of time to find out how early player progression feels as you start out fresh in the game. There are also plans to have a special Legendary Dungeon event later in the week, so keep your eyes peeled for when the NPCs arrive to just level you up to the cap and let you get geared up for the endgame content. Or just wait for the reports to roll in from the people who have played the game, if you’d prefer. Ask your doctor if Astellia is right for you. Side effects of installing this beta may include enjoyment, disappointment, confusion at the money you spent getting in, satisfaction at same, happiness for getting a key, and extended play sessions.
We’ll be streaming our first look at the game at 2 p.m. EDT today on OPTV, so join us for the fun!
