'Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent' Enters Open Beta - New Screens

Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent is the only MMORPG of its kind, set in the uniquely creative genre of "steampunk," where 19th century steam-based technology meets fantasy inventions.

In ancient times, all races enjoyed lives of luxury in a world where science and magic harmoniously coexisted. The discovery of the new resource "Neo Steam" spurred the development of advanced technology, but it came at a high price to the balance of the world. One fateful day, a massive earthquake shattered the land. Two new nations arose: the Republic of Rogwel and the Kingdom of Elerd, both of whom fought for control of the precious resource. Do you have the strength, courage and cunning to help lead your chosen nation to power? Customize your avatar's allegiance and class affiliations, and dive into the battle with Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent!

Anyone who registers before June 8 will have an opportunity to jump in for an early glimpse at the game, and to reward players for their dedication, all beta characters will automatically roll over to permanent accounts at the game’s commercial launch. All that hard work and hours spent customizing your character will not be in vain!

“Building a strong, happy community is our priority, and the open beta of Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent is our chance to cater to our members, show them the great progress we’ve made with the game, and continue to take their much-appreciated feedback,” says Tyler Kim, Head of the Online Division, Atlus U.S.A., Inc. “In the remaining weeks before the game’s official launch, we encourage players to take a look at Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent and contribute to the blossoming community.”

The Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent open beta will culminate with an exciting special gift, a pair of steampunk-inspired goggles handmade by an artisan specifically for one lucky fan. Atlus Online, a daily destination for community-focused gaming and interactive entertainment, will also continue to run various promotions beyond commercial launch, giving away prizes and exclusive in-game items.
