WEBZEN Inc. (WWW.WEBZEN.COM), the Next Generation of Free-to-Play Online Games, announced their first PvP Championship Tournament for the Action RPG ‘C9’ (Continent of the Ninth Seal) to be held prior to the official global launch.
Last February, the first global VIP test for C9 had finished, and to take the next step, WEBZEN is preparing to receive registrations for the ‘2012 C9 Championship Tournament’ held this coming May. Users who wish to compete must enter through the registration page and accomplish a mission to participate. Those who join the tournament will receive various and unique benefits in future tests.
In preparation for the tournament, C9 will open the beta test that starts in April. At first, WEBZEN will prepare a media focused beta test exclusively for media that starts on April 12th. Afterwards, from the 15th, users will be able to join the beta test that continues until May 6th to complete the missions for the tournament participation in May. Also, more contents for both PvE and PvP that were not revealed in the first VIP test will be revealed during this beta test.
Jihun Lee, Head of Global Publishing, said, “The localization for global c9 is underway, covering both official and non-official feedback as much as possible to meet the users’ needs.” Also he said, “We will focus on the localization and development to launch the official service this summer.”
Meanwhile, WEBZEN participated in GDC 2012 held at San Francisco from March 7th to the 9th with C9 and ARCTIC COMBAT which received positive responses from visitors and various game media.
