The MMORPH Elyon will be getting a closed beta next month, Bluehole and Kakao Games have confirmed. The beta will be available in North America, Europe, and Oceania. Elyon was previously known as AI:R. Elyon has been released in South Korea already so this is the push to bring the MMORPG to a wider audience. The story of Elyon sees the nations of Vulpin and Ontari going to war to control Elyon, a portal that is supposed to lead to paradise.
The key features of Elyon include:
- Extensive character customization – Create your own unique character with extensive customization tools and detail-oriented options. Want to go the extra mile? Take your look to the next level with the Equipment Dye system.
- Deep skill customization – Modify the way your skills and character respond with Skill Attributes, Rune Attributes, and Mana Awakening.
- Realm vs Realm battles – Engage in large scale Realm vs Realm battles with the assistance of heavy artillery, mechas, and dragons!
- Clan Wars – Compete with other clans and establish yourself as the best of the best. Top clans get to control Dimensional Portals and collect taxes from any player that enters them.
- Gather, craft, and trade – Make your own high grade equipment and other consumables that will aid you in battle. Have unused materials? You can sell them via Trading and make a profit!
- Open-world PvP – Players of opposing Realms can attack each other anywhere in the world. When in conflict zones, players can claim Laurel Wreaths of Greed, allowing them to attack any player be it enemy or ally – but the use of such power comes with dire risks.
- Dungeons, Arenas and Dimensional Portals – Enjoy a variety of PvP and PvE content, from classic 1vs1 to Free For All arenas, to dungeons filled with clever mechanics. Dimensional Portals will lead you to planes of rich resources that will help you become stronger.
Applications are open now and will be open until April 25th. The closed beta will then run from May 6th to May 10th. To apply for a place then you can go through to the website. Those who are successful will get an extra key to share with someone else.
