Elyon’s western publisher begins promoting English website ahead of Korean launch

Tomorrow’s an exciting day for Korean MMORPG fans: Elyon, aka Ascent Infinite Realm, is finally launching in the region after several years of teasing, testing, and title-changes.

But what about those of us across the Pacific? While we knew the game was getting a global release, hard details on when and how have been scarce. The best news came from Kakao’s November quarterly report, Kakao being the signed Western publisher for the Krafton-Bluehole title: Kakao told investors that the game is slated for release in the bottom half of 2021.

This morning, Kakao began promoting the Western website for Elyon, currently just in English, which seems to signal that the companies are about to point the hype machine our way once the Korean launch is settled. Of course, as you’ll notice immediately, the website is basically a single slide with two sentences of lore, one sentence of pedigree, and two more sentences effectively describing how MMORPGs work. Of course, if you read Korean or have a translation app, you can poke around the Korean wiki and website in the meantime.

That video is useless. Whoever is in charge over there that thought leaning harder into the generic fantasy instead of the sky/steampunk things is a real jerk. If they had pretended this was a trailer for something Tera related I would have believed it.

I don’t understand the point of “cinematic” trailers that use game assets but no real gameplay. Who finds this exciting? If you want to establish your game’s mood artistically or something I guess that can work, but this was just awful.

I know they have shown gameplay and there is plenty of raw in-game footage in the wild. Only commenting on the trailer above.

I watched all the class intro videos on the new western site. Am I crazy or do the attacks of every single class look exactly the same with the only difference being what costume and weapon they’re using? My first impression is that this is Black Dessert with the color saturation turned up a few notches.

The website itself actually shows a few more abilities per class. They still do look a lot alike though!

Quite a bit more on the page now.
