WEBZEN, a global developer and publisher of free-to-play games, has announced the first global closed beta for its upcoming hack ‘n’ slash MMO MU LEGEND. The first global CBT is set to begin in fall 2016.
MU LEGEND, a dark-fantasy action MMORPG, is the highly anticipated follow-up to MU Online. It features fluid and stunning hack ‘n’ slash combat, content that caters to both solo and party play, and a deep and intriguing world that will satisfy new players and fans alike. Utilizing Unreal Engine 3, MU LEGEND displays spectacular visuals, detailed art design and stunning effects that will run even on lower-end systems.
Additionally, WEBZEN has today opened MU LEGEND’s global Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/MULegendGlobal/, providing players with an official source of information regarding the global release. The page will also share impressions and insights regarding the second Korean CBT which began today, such as livestreams with English commentary and updates on the overall Korean development progress. WEBZEN encourages interested players to like the MU LEGEND Facebook page in order to stay updated on any important news, such as pre-registration information or details about release dates.
While WEBZEN plans to run a second global test in early 2017, it has also confirmed plans to work on additional localizations of the game (French, German, Brazilian-Portuguese, Spanish and Polish) in order to satisfy the high expectations of its global communities after the two global tests.
Richard Moon, Head of Global Business at WEBZEN, commented: “We are very excited to share today’s news with our players worldwide!” He continued: “Our players have been patiently waiting for a worthy new client-based MU game. We’re sure that most of our loyal communities still remember the first bits and pieces of information that were released (when it was still being referred to as MU2!), and we certainly remember the degree of excitement and commitment that we received in response. That’s what makes today so special to us. Not only are we able to give back, we’re able to express our gratitude and respect towards our players by fulfilling their wishes and announcing multiple languages for the game!”
