Ascent: Infinite Realm SEA Closed Beta Announced
Playpark, the South East Asian publisher for Bluehole Studio’s upcoming steampunk-themed fantasy MMORPG Ascent: Infinite Realm announced that they will be holding their closed beta for A:IR on April 25th.
While the game will be completely in Thai, interested players can pre-download the client on April 10th in preparation for its April 25th release.
As we’re well aware, A:IR will release as a 100% free to play MMORPG with a fully-functional cash-shop introduced for players to waste money in.
We’re not privy at this point how pay to win that cash shop will end up being, if at all, but we can take solace in knowing that Playpark’s version will incude a cash shop with which to get a gauge ours off of.
This will end up providing us a small glimpse into what we can expect when it launches globally. Invites for the beta are being given out both from fan sites and the official A:IR website itself.
Confirmation on a Western release still eludes us, but a closed beta is hopefully still going to take place this year.
