Good news everyone! Nexon America will launch the official service of Dragon Nest’s North American servers next Wednesday, September 28. Nexon will also perform some big new updates which include a new central town (Saint’s Haven), 10 new danger-filled dungeons, a level cap increase to 32 and over 500 new quests. New skills will be unlocked for all subclasses.
Players will also be able to enjoy a series of celebratory in-game events starting next Wednesday, September 28th. Bonus empowerment points, which award additional EXP, cash item giveaways and more are planned to celebrate the launch.
I haven’t been playing Dragon Nest America or Dragon Nest SEA recently because of my busy schedule. I plan to play in the future though, hopefully becoming active again once September is finally over.
D R A G O N N E S T
It’s not arguable that Dragon Nest has achieved massive success across Asia since it was first launched in Korea in March 2010, accumulating over 60 million registered users and 800,000 concurrent users in just 16 months. Incredible. Now it’s time for the world’s fastest growing action online game to take on the North American market. Nexon America has opened the game’s first three North American servers as of midday on Tuesday, July 26, 2011.
This hasn’t exactly been a smoothly running first day of open beta though as there is a lot of lag currently being experienced by many players, including me. Many players also cannot even get onto the game and some are even having problems patching their closed beta client. Oh well, it IS beta.
There are three servers currently open for North America players, Velskud (Western North America), Argenta (Eastern North America) and Gerrant (Eastern North America). Why there would be more Eastern servers than Western, I don’t know, but I’m sure Nexon knows that they’re doing.
Open Beta Update Notes
The Dragon Nest SEA closed beta has ended. Open beta is coming soon!
DRAGON NEST SEA WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PLAYING FOR ANYONE OUTSIDE OF A REGION WITH A LOCALIZED SERVICE. THEREFORE, ANYONE OUTSIDE OF KOREA, JAPAN, CHINA, TAIWAN, HONG KONG, THAILAND, THE UNITED STATES, CANADA AND AUSTRALIA WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY IT, INCLUDING NEW ZEALAND.
The Dragon Nest SEA closed beta, published by Shanda Games, has entered its closed beta phase on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 6:00AM GMT. It will run until Tuesday, July 19.
The game client is now available for beta testers at the official website which can be viewed at http://dn.cherrycredits.com/.
DN Point Giveaway
Dragon Nest SEA closed beta testers will receive 1,000 DN Points for every day that they log into the closed beta. These DN Points can be used in the game’s cash shop when it opens in open beta.
Heroes of Beta Title
The Heroes of Beta title is a title that will be rewarded to closed beta testers when open beta launches if we meet some requirements. This title adds 2 to each stat and is permanent.
1. Log in everyday from July 13 to July 19.
2. Achieve level 24 in the game. It’s harder than it sounds if you’re comparing it to MapleStory or some other games.
Stand tall and proud CBT players, and take the Dragon Nest SEA Closed Beta Pledge, for your job is crucial and goes a long way to ensure utmost fun to millions of players around the world.
The Closed Beta phase of any game serves to improve and trouble-shoot any existing bugs and/or technical problems in the game or service. As a Dragon Nest SEA Closed Beta player, you pledge to:
- Embrace the objective of seeking out bugs, provide feedback and to stress-test the limitation of the game service during the CBT period.
- Be patient with bugs, technical problems and roll-backs during the CBT period.
- Be understanding when your account is wiped after CBT.
- Be proud of being the pioneer batch of players to experience the game before anyone else.
- Provide feedback and report bugs in our forum.
- Refrain from flaunting your CBT rewards too much in OBT. (It’s not nice to get people too jealous.)
Now, let’s give it your best for Lagendia!
