[Beta signup] Looks like Aeria Games is stocking up on PvP-focused online games these few weeks. Previously, it was announced in Korea that the publisher will be hosting DK Online for the English market (link), and today Waren Story is confirmed. If you remembered, the developer of Waren Story, Alt1 Games, apparently tried to self-publish the game in North America back last year, which was eventually shut down in November despite the cash shop being operational.
Back then when I personally played, it was laggy, buggy and with no visible management at all. Under Aeria Games, hopefully Waren Story is fixed internally of the errors and undergo a better management process. We shall see once a Closed Beta date is confirmed! The official press release is attached below.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Apr. 17, 2012 – Dust off your old vendettas and inject some blood back into your feuds. If you have a friend you’ve been wanting to go medieval on, the time is now.
Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, announced today that closed beta registration has begun for Waren Story, a new 3D fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Featuring an epic adventure and intense PvP warfare, the game’s striking scenery and imaginative detail will sweep players away to an exotic medieval world.
The continent of Waren is divided, and a dark force is stirring in its polluted western lands. Players must choose the path of Warrior, Gunner, Archer, or Brawler and then explore the unique array of devastating skills each class has to offer. These heroes will engage in deadly battles, slay nightmarish beasts, and recruit powerful allies in their quest to restore order to this troubled land.
“Waren Story brings a unique combat and skill system to an immersive fantasy adventure that will appeal to core gamers” says Producer Lucas Gunn. “With riveting animations and massive PvP battles, this MMORPG will challenge players to overcome obstacles at every step of their journey.”
Players prepare for battle through character customization options with a unique array of weapons and armor at their disposal. As these heroes traverse an endless series of monster-infested plains, they will face a menagerie of dangerous and fascinating creatures. However, the combat here is only the tip of a very long sword; the game’s robust PvP system takes full advantage of its riveting animation, offering a variety of thrilling combat modes. In Waren Story, there’s no such thing as the daily grind—each minute in each battle is an entirely new experience, as players battle equally skilled—and equally deadly—fellow players.
Waren Story will require a client download and with all Aeria Games titles, it will be free-to-play. Interested players can lean more and sign up to participate in the upcoming closed beta test at: http://warenstory.aeriagames.com.
