Saint Seiya Online – First look at debut test phase

Well, I did not manage to get into the first test phase, but the Chinese media did. Perfect World’s Saint Seiya Online is finally available for the lucky public with keys to test play, and seen in this post are some videos taken.

In case you are wondering, players can customize their characters, but it seems that a large group prefer to stick to what the classic 5 look like.

 

Players will have 5 “classes” to choose from, which is Pegasus (fast attack speed), Dragon (ultimate defense), Cygnus (ranged and freeze effects AOE), Andromeda (support healer) and Phoenix (pure damage AOE).

From the videos, Saint Seiya Online looks oddly familiar to Forsaken World in terms of UI and style… I just have this feeling. Combat is definitely similar though.
