Echo of Soul was a huge sensation when it was launched in South Korea, at one point even challenging League of Legends’ popularity. However, it was closed in October last year citing lack of satisfactory content. Just this June, it was announced mega games publisher, Kakao Games (formerly Nzin Corporation), has picked up the domestic publishing rights, with Open Beta set to begin next month.
Yesterday, Kakao Games and developer Mr Blue (formerly Nvius) held a press conference to lay out future plans. The main highlight is the new tanker class, Paladin, followed by tons of optimizations, and improvements from the original version. Players can also expect new PVE and PVP maps, and regular events and content updates. The English server is currently published by Aeria Games.
