Astellia – New fantasy PC MMORPG announced for western market

[Signup] Astellia is a new MMORPG which was just recently launched in South Korea by Nexon, so you could imagine my surprise that an English server is arriving for the western gamers! Publisher Barunson E&A Corp, the North America subsidiary of Barunson E&A located in South Korea, was formed just last year. Astellia is also developed by an affiliate studio, Studio 8. Formed in 1997, Barunson E&A isn’t exactly a big player in South Korea, but the acquisition of NAT Games in 2015, developer of mobile game HIT, shot it to prominence. There are other games in the works as well, such as Project EX and Project B.

Astellia is the evolution of the modern fantasy MMORPG that fans have been waiting for. And very soon at PAX South, fans will get a first look and a chance for hands on time with Studio 8’s lush creation. Set to launch later in 2019, with several planned beta periods planned, Astellia is a MMORPG where players collect dozens of magical companion fighters known as Astells, take them into battle in open world content, team PVP battlegrounds, massive 3-faction warfare, and tons of group and solo dungeons across the game world.
