The Original Press Release:
Karos Online: Open beta begins December 4th, final closed beta event details revealed
Seoul, Korea – Thursday, November 19th, 2009 – NHN Corporation announced today that the open beta phase for its fantasy MMORPG Karos Online will begin on Friday, the 4th of December. The final event of closed beta, running on the 27th and the 28th of November, will allow beta testers to experience high-level content and reserve their characters’ names for use in open beta.
Especially for the final closed beta event, new characters will come fully-equipped with gear and items to support high-level play, and the rate of experience gain has been dramatically increased so that players can reach a level cap of 44 almost immediately. In addition, the names of characters created during the last closed beta event will be linked to the testers’ accounts for use in open beta and launch (the characters themselves will be wiped after the event). “In the previous Karos Online closed beta weekends, players were able to try early levelling and the starter content of the game,” said Heejin Jeong, Senior Overseas Sales Manager at NHN Corporation. “The third event offers the opportunity to play as a much more powerful character, and there will be new features available this time that players haven’t seen before, including new monsters, weapons and Holy Creatures. This will be the last closed beta event for Karos Online, we think it’s going to be a lot of fun and we hope to see a lot of testers return to help us celebrate the end of a very productive closed beta.”
All up-to-date information about the game is available at www.karosgame.com. To apply for beta participation, simply create an account at www.karosgame.com and click ‘Apply Now’. If you have been accepted into a previous beta event, you will receive instructions two to three days before the event begins (there is no need to re-apply).
More details and features of Karos Online will be revealed as the game draws closer to its English release, scheduled for Q4 2009. German and Turkish versions will follow in 2010.
