[Game website] Webzen, a global developer and publisher of online games, today announced that the upcoming Asian fantasy MMORPG, ASTA: The War of Tears and Winds, will soon begin a public Initial Beta Test starting on 3 November 2015. With no restrictions, players with an active Webzen account will be able to check out this new addition to the Webzen game portal for the first time.
The Initial Beta Test is scheduled to last for roughly one month and will provide players with a first look at the settings and features available in ASTA, while also doubling as a server stress test and general check-up. Upon its conclusion, player progress and characters will be wiped. Once the official open beta begins, all participants of the initial beta test will receive a special thank-you gift.
Apart from the unique art design, ASTA also brings back some of the most popular features found in classic MMOs, such as customizable attributes and talent trees. These allow players to have more freedom to create their perfect character. The Divine Spirit System and jewelry crafting also allow for extensive customization, letting players fine-tune their specializations even further.
