Steampunkish Elyon proposes ‘massive’ Korean beta test this summer

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?

I was so excited when I first heard about A:IR. It was the first MMO I started watching in many years. With the changes, sadly, it’s an

It’s gone into a more fantasy direction and has embraced Korean views toward hyper-sexualizing how female characters appear, at least from what I’ve seen of the video. I can’t help but think they’re trying to be BDO2, as even many of the systems, like gearing, is similar.

I would really love to see a good Steampunk MMO.

I was more intrigued rather than excited before, but if anything the rebranding dramatically reduced any interest I originally had for this game.
