'Elyon' 2nd Closed Beta Planned Next Month, Accepting Sign-ups, Pre-Orders Available - Trailer

by Rainier on July 26, 2021 @ 11:55 a.m. PDT

Set in a world of magical technology and unlimited potential, Elyon is an MMORPG that has you compete in fierce faction wars, take on challenging group combat and features advanced character build options.

Elyon takes place in a high fantasy steampunk world where machines and magic rule and everyone is dependent on flight to explore, travel, and conquer. In search of a new home, adventurers take to the skies using a wide selection of airships, vehicles, and flying mounts to traverse Elyon’s open, highly vertical world.

Vehicles and mounts in Elyon serve more than just the purpose of transportation; they will also provide adventurers with the ultimate battle experience― Elyon’s Realm vs Realm PvP mode. In RvR, factions fight for fame and glory, taking turns to lead offensive and defensive efforts using all kinds of flying vehicles. Players can also join the fight from the ground with mechs and anti-air artillery to fight airborne threats―or initiate ground based aerial attacks depending on the map and strategy. Various strategic weapons such as cannons, mines, and attack buffs are at each faction’s disposal to tip the balance in their favour. The combination of ground-based and aerial combat makes each fight challenging and dynamic.

Most of Elyon’s content is highly customizable, allowing players to tailor detailed aspects of their play experience and unleash their creativity. An airship, for instance, can have its type, appearance, color, and performance modified. Players can even create their own quests, alter their hunting grounds, and change the difficulty when battling monsters in dungeons or hunting areas.

Kakao Games announced that the 2nd Closed Beta (CBT2) play period for Elyon will run from August 18th to the 23rd across North America, Europe, and Oceania. 

Applications for CBT2 are now open to the public until August 11th, with pre-orders also going live today.

A substantially higher number of applicants will be accepted to participate in this second testing event, which will occur from August 18th to the 23rd. Those selected to join the Elyon CBT2 will be informed of their invitation via email.

CBT2 will offer a version significantly closer to that of the Korean build, with features including:

  • The addition of the Slayer Class
  • Class balance adjustments and updated Mana Awakening skills
  • Players can enjoy a variety of challenging battle experiences in new dimensional portals
  • Dungeons are now divided into solo and party dungeons
  • Easier leveling via increased XP for killing monsters at a certain power level
  • Events specifically for CBT2 participants
  • Improved game service platform and infrastructure for Western market players
  • Localization in English, French, Spanish and German

Those who pre-order Elyon will enjoy exclusive pre-order rewards, guaranteed CBT2 access and a 24-hour head start on release. By purchasing Additional Packages users will be able to secure up to a 72-hour head start, an exclusive weapon, and an exclusive armor set.

Key Features:

  • Extensive character customization: Create your own unique character with extensive customization tools and detail-oriented options. Want to go the extra mile? Take your look to the next level with the Equipment Dye system.
  • Deep skill customization: Modify the way your skills and character respond with Skill Attributes, Rune Attributes, and Mana Awakening.
  • Realm vs Realm battles: Engage in large scale Realm vs Realm battles with the assistance of heavy artillery, mechas, and dragons!
  • Clan Wars: Compete with other clans and establish yourself as the best of the best. Top clans get to control Dimensional Portals and collect taxes from any player that enters them.
  • Gather, craft, and trade: Make your own high grade equipment and other consumables that will aid you in battle. Have unused materials? You can sell them via Trading and make a profit!
  • Open-world PvP: Players of opposing Realms can attack each other anywhere in the world. When in conflict zones, players can claim Laurel Wreaths of Greed, allowing them to attack any player be it enemy or ally - but the use of such power comes with dire risks.
  • Dungeons, Arenas and Dimensional Portals: Enjoy a variety of PvP and PvE content, from classic 1vs1 to Free For All arenas, to dungeons filled with clever mechanics. Dimensional Portals will lead you to planes of rich resources that will help you become stronger.

Elyon is coming to PC (Steam) in Fall 2021.
