by Rainier on Jan. 29, 2008 @ 12:22 p.m. PST

Cabal Online, a 3rd person 3D MMORPG that builds on over a decade of experience with massive network traffic management to deliver graphically vivid world of non-stop hack & slash action. The U.S. open beta testing period for CABAL ONLINE begins Feb. 1, 2008 until the game's official launch on Feb. 21, 2008.

In CABAL ONLINE, players are called upon to protect the people of Nevareth from an evil entity known as CABAL. Centuries ago, the evil CABAL all but destroyed Nevareth, but the land was saved and rebuilt by seven great masters wielding the ancient abilities of Force Power. Nearly a thousand years later, CABAL has returned, and it is up to players to master the intricacies of the Force Power and use them to save Nevareth.

Set in a diverse environment that includes ice temples, forgotten ruins, desert hideaways, mutant forests and volcanic citadels, CABAL engages players with dynamic quests-not just the "collect 10 of something and bring it to me" variety-and more than 300 dungeons to explore. With 170 levels, CABAL is conducive to either hardcore or casual game play.

CABAL Online now offers even more value for money than ever before. Players are able to enter the world of Nevareth for absolutely FREE, yes, that's right, no charge!, taking advantage of the unique chance to join a battle of epic proportions. Based in Nevareth, a world depleted by war and the mythical natural forces, CABAL Online offers users a fast-paced and action packed experience, now for the first time with no costs attached.

With the removal of a monthly fee, a brand new item shop has been implemented to the game, providing items for sale, ranging from hi-tech flying boards to in-game potions. Games-Masters.com state that this service will offer convenience without ruining the economy of the game.
