Asura was first announced in China back in 2010, and it was solely an online game. I suppose in an effort to spoil Diablo III’s upcoming launch party in China, the country’s biggest online game operator Tencent Games has got to do something about it.
While no in-depth details are currently announced, Asura will only be the 2nd online game in China to make its transition into an offline one, when normally it is the other way round.
The box artwork looks nice eh? Seen below are some trailers of the game. It is currently in closed testing, with Open Beta hinted to start in December later this year. Over the next few weeks, Tencent Games will announce more “surprise” features for Asura. Stay tuned!
