Multi-platform game publisher Kakao Games has launched the 2nd Closed Beta (CBT2) for upcoming MMORPG, Elyon, which will run from August 18-23 ahead of its Fall 2021 release in North America, Europe and Oceania.
From celebrated game developer Bluehole Studio, Elyon is set in a world of magic and technology, where factions collide to claim the mystical world of Elyon. With deep character customization, skill building, weapon choices, thrilling PvP and more, Elyon endeavors to provide a rich, unique and exciting gaming experience.
CBT2 participants can expect a build more closely aligned with its Korean counterpart, with features not available in CBT1. Some of those features include the addition of the powerful Slayer Class, updated Mana Awakening skills, improved game service platform and infrastructure for Western market players, easier leveling, solo and multiplayer dungeon play, and more.
In celebration of the CBT2 debut, Kakao Games has also established a series of Twitch Drops, which those who have not yet applied can use to gain access to CBT2 directly. Players who link a Kakao Games account with their Twitch account and participate in Elyon streams will receive:
- CBT2 Access after 1 hour of viewing (CBT2 only)
- Chick (Pet) after 3 hours of viewing (CBT2 only)
- 3,000 + 100 Ruby Box after 5 hours of viewing (CBT2 only)
- Jet Board A mount after 7 hours of viewing (for official launch)
Amongst the events prepared for CBT2 will be a character customization contest, the winners of which will see their designs added as presets on the character creation screen.
