Nexon has announced that it plans to start beta testing for its massively multiplayer RPG on August 1. There are a couple of new features included in the beta, such as a novice area where elements of gameplay are explained by non-player characters wandering around the area and all items and skills are low level. The magic system has also been changed to include spirit weapons and armor, and spells now have distinct strengths and weaknesses. Beta testers will also find new quests to undertake.
There is currently no word on the final retail release of Elemental Saga. For more information on the game, take a look at our previous coverage .
