[Game website] Finally, after years of waiting and months of teasing, Webzen’s Continent of the Ninth is now in its Open Beta phase for the English market. I have no idea why the game is renamed as “Continent of the Ninth Seal”, but it is still the same non-target action MMO as its Korea, Japan and China counterparts. The game is Free to Play if you are wondering, and I have just started a Witchblade for some casual play before Guild Wars 2 arrives later in August.
A couple of months ago, I gave the China server a shot, and you can see more videos here (link) and here (link). Continent of the Ninth is somewhat similar to Dragon Nest, but of course with more mature graphics. However, a section of C9’s skills (for all classes) will require manual key combinations, like tapping double-W (forward) and right mouse click to use it. TERA is no way near the combat of Dragon Nest and C9, but its open world system certainly wins the other 2.
