[Press Release] Singapore, 13th December 2012 – Asiasoft Online today concluded its wildly successful six-day Ragnarok Online 2 Closed Beta Testing (“CBT”) at 0201HRS (+8 GMT). The game server is now closed to fix the in-game bugs and technical issues encountered during CBT and to ensure players will have the smoothest possible experience with logging in and playing Ragnarok Online 2 during Open Beta and beyond.
Launched on 7th December 2012 at the Licence2Play 2012 gaming event held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, Ragnarok Online 2 is the sequel to the worldwide MMORPG franchise, Ragnarok Online.

The Ragnarok Online 2 Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/PlayRO2/) garnered its first 20,000 “Like”s in less than three day of its debut on 7th December 2012, a record number for Asiasoft Online thus far.

We would like to sincerely thank all the players who participated in CBT and whose invaluable support and feedback will contribute to the improvements made in Open Beta.”
