Chang You, the up and coming free to play MMO publisher, is letting their newest title enter open beta in the middle of this month. October 13th marks the day that Zentia enters open beta, but for those that are in the closed beta there is new content that is being rolled out as well.
I was lucky enough to have played some of the closed Beta when it first came out right after E3 and was pretty impressed with the game. As free to play MMO’s go Zentia just seemed entirely more willing to make fun of itself and more willing have a rather light heart about the entire experience than other free-to-play games.
The Press Release follows:
ChangYou.com (US) Inc., today announced that Zentia Open Beta will begin on Oct 13th. With the launch of Open Beta, ChangYou invites all players worldwide to join in and fully experience the excitement of a rich, charmingly hardcore, 3D free-to-play MMORPG.
“Open Beta will have some great new content that will please both new players and veterans alike,” says David Markowitz, Zentia’s Associate Producer. “The visuals in some of these new features, like the Serene City Night instance, Mt. Fairy, and the Netherworld, are perfectly dark and creepy!”
The Zentia Open Beta features four new characters were inspired by both western and eastern cultures: The New Guy, The BFF, The Maiden Fair, and The Divine Child. Players can choose any of the twenty-four characters with any of eight unrestricted classes to begin their journey through Zentia.
Developed by Pixel Soft, Zentia Open Beta will provide new high level content and zones such as Mt. Fairy and the Netherworld, a new mini-game called “Colored Ball Matrix”, and exciting new events for all levels.
In addition to new features and characters, the game offers multi-person combat mounts in both PvE (Player vs Environment) and PvP (Player vs Player), including ones that can even carry 10 people, an elaborate pet and mount capture system, and a unique, humorous design. Zentia is a world where players can experience a fun, exciting, challenging, and immersive game experience for hours on end.
