Earlier today, publisher Smilegate and developer Lion Games held a press conference in South Korea to announce that Soulworker will enter Open Beta domestically on 18th January. Formerly signed to SEGA Publishing Korea, Smilegate took over the publishing duties once the partnership did not work out. Soulworker Korea will be launching with 4 playable characters, with 2 more added soon.
Smilegate is also publishing Soulworker in South America and Southeast Asia, while Gameforge is the publisher for North America and Europe. Lion Games mentioned there will be a “Master Build” of the game with all versions sharing the same core content, while having localiz events for each region. Plans are in place for comics, anime series, and more if Soulworker is successful.
