If you do not know, Wizardry, the gaming franchise from the 1980s’, was made into an online game by the current IP owner, Gamepot Japan. After a few Closed Beta tests, the game is now set for Open Beta in Japan on October 7th. This hardcore title with permanent player death will also be reaching English shores in the future. I am not sure if it will be under Gamepot USA, as the company’s game catalog is really… depressing at the moment (link).
However, players must first purchase the Wizardry Online client at a price of 3990 Japanese Yen (USD 52.09) to activate the game. This essentially make the title a Buy to Play (B2P) with a Cash Shop. The 2 Dwarven races will not be available for selection during this phase.
