Divine Souls – Priest class teased

Divine Souls, developed by Korean studio Grand Prix, has teased its upcoming 4th class, the Priest. Priests in the game will wield a giant scythe and armed with secondary healing/ support spells to assist their allies. The new class will be a melee character with a high strength and stamina value, with their attacks described as “dazzling” and “colorful”. Grand Prix is currently in the final stages of balancing the class.

Personally, I am surprised by the launch schedule. While the English version is due to launch its Open Beta in a few days (without the Priest of course), the Korean server will only enter Closed Beta in January 2011. It seems like a smart move, as other than Vindictus, there are really no competitors in the action MMO genre. For those reading this post, here’s an extra something for you. Another company has apparently signed the English server for another region, but I can’t confirm (or say) which region it is. Stay tuned! *winks*
