Atlus Online will tomorrow launch the Pandora Saga Closed Beta, opening the doors to its upcoming free-to-play MMORPG through December 19th.Â
The brief taste of the game’s breathtaking battles–at times up to 600 players large–in addition to its real-time combat and multi-tier job class system offers an exciting sampling of what MMORPG fans can expect when Pandora Saga launches early next year.
Although Closed Beta registration has already concluded, interested gamers can still obtain access via a limited number of keys available through select partners in the gaming press, including: OnRPG.com, MMORPG.com, MMOhut.com, and MMOsite.com.
“Pandora Saga’s Closed Beta will play a major part in helping us balance and refine the final play experience for our fans,” commented Producer Justin Guthrie of Atlus Online.Â “Just as importantly, it will give gamers looking forward to Pandora Saga’s unique mix of large-scale battles and real-time, strategy-laced combat a chance to dive into our completely redone English localization and experience advanced features like the multi-tier Job Class system.Â We’re planning on making the Closed Beta as packed with events and special things-to-do as possible, so participants are encouraged to log in early and often!”
In order to provide as complete a Pandora Saga experience as possible, an accelerated experience curve will allow for faster progression in and exploration through the game world.Â Moreover, the Closed Beta is set to conclude with a War of Nations (5:30pm to 9:00pm PT on Sunday, December 19th), an excellent preview of the large-scale battles Pandora Saga promises to deliver when it launches on Atlus Online’s interactive portal in early 2011.Â As a token of appreciation for their Pandora Saga love, the first 300 Closed Beta participants who log into the game each day will be rewarded with a Premium Ticket for Pandora Saga’s Open Beta.Â A Premium Ticket will be a beneficial item that will help increase experience and drop rates while minimizing the death penalty.
