When Asker was first announced, I had pretty high hopes for the game, seeing it as a potential challenger to Black Desert and ArcheAge. But as it turned out, Asker is really a dungeon-based game, almost like a lesser, downgraded version of Mabinogi Heroes (also known as Vindictus).
Closed Beta 1 for Asker ended last week, and seen here are some gameplay videos. While it is certain that more upgrades will be made, I do not have high hopes for it. While I do not know why, developer Neowiz will not be at G-Star 2014, missing a chance to showcase the game to the public.
