If you cast your mind back a couple of years, you might recall that steampunk MMO fans were hanging their hopes on the then-newly announced Ascent: Infinite Realm. However, the title languished in development hell for a year or so, after which it emerged as Elyon. The game’s rebranding not only signaled a shift away from its former steampunk foundation but toward a much more TERA-like action combat fantasy MMO.
Since the rebranding, developer Krafton’s been working hard on getting a viable game to market. The good news here is that a big step forward is going to happen this summer with a beta test in Korea. MMO Culture relayed the news that a “massive” beta is being planned for late July, with registrations to start in Korea this June.
Hopefully this means that on July 25th, we’ll start seeing a lot more in terms of details, gameplay, and videos for Elyon. Are you excited?
