At a media conference earlier today, Neowiz finally announced the Closed Beta 1 schedule. It will take place from 20th February till 23rd February 2014, with the server open between 1500 (3pm) and 2300 (11pm) on a daily basis. This is only happening in South Korea, in case you are wondering.
As previously reported, Bless was slapped with a M18 age restriction last week by the relevant authorities. For Closed Beta 1, slots will only be given to lucky winners of events and registrants who are age 19 and above. The events have already started for a couple of weeks now.
The combat system preview trailer leaves much to be desired, as it basically shows just shows customized skill slots and apparently class-based special skill… Content available is up to level 25, including 2 dungeons and 4 classes. We will have to wait for the more awesome stuff such as castle siege involving land and air battles.
The recommended PC system specs is listed below, with a 64-bit Windows 7 OS being the eye-catcher. It seems even the online gaming world is moving towards 64-bit system, similar to single-player titles such as Titanfall. The HDD space is at a modest 16GB, while RAM is at 4GB.
