[CYP] Chinese Service of Cyphers Enters Open Beta on October 24
Nearly a year after the agreement for the publishing of action online game Cyphers in the massive Chinese market was announced, the game will enter open beta. Nexon’s longtime partner Tiancity (KartRider, Vindictus, Mabinogi, etc.) is handling the publishing.
Cyphers, which was first launched in Korea in 2011, was developed by Neople, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nexon and the developer of Dungeon&Fighter. Cyphers is a 3D MOACTION game that features dynamic battles and unique characters with groundbreaking superpowers. Cyphers’ Open Beta will offer a uniquely localized map, “The Bright Golden City,” based off of the theme of “The Forbidden City.”
“Cyphers is a reflection of Neople’s superior development expertise, and its exciting action and the fresh new play modes have been well-received by users in the Final Test which started on October 17. We expect that the game’s Open Beta will also be well-received,” said Mr. Cao Nian Bao, President of Tiancity.
“We are excited to continue moving forward with the development of Cyphers for China and our successful partnership with Tiancity,” said Seungwoo Choi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nexon Co., Ltd. “Cyphers has already been well-received in Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong and we are confident its momentum will continue in China.”
Cyphers is currently open in Korea (Nexon) and Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau (Gamania). I continue to lobby for its service in the West.
