Public beta testing may not start until early 2013, but Gale Networks Europe are already getting keys sent out for their free-to-play martial arts MMORPG Age of Wulin.
Keys will be sent out through various channels and more details about the closed beta, and a schedule, will be released soon. Amongst the first players to receive beta keys are the participants and lucky winners of an in-game event held for players in Allods Online.
“We are currently working on updating our time and development schedules. Due to the on-going development process in China and additional and important updates being implemented in the latest Chinese version of Age of Wulin, we now have been informed that the European version will see about 30 % more content than the current development version we have been working on so far. This is obviously great and exciting news, and we of course want to bring players the latest version and contents of the game. However, this also requires additional development activities. In terms of localisation, for example, this means we’re now facing 1 million additional characters to be translated. This is leading towards the full launch now happening in 2013, but we are now starting to distribute the first batches of closed beta keys affirming that the closed beta testing will start by the beginning of the new year”, explains Nicolas Pajot, CEO of Gala Networks Europe. “Of course, our aim of delivering the highest quality possible does not change, and we will invest all necessary resources to deliver the best possible free to play gaming experience.”
