Astellia Teaser Astellia Teaser - Classical MMORPG. Astellia is a Classical MMORPG. Join us on an adventure through dungeons, epic battlefields, and write your story amongst the stars. Just found out about this game today; Korean MMO that is PvP and PvE, that seems to have a pretty cool companion system. The will be having the typical Triad class system (tank, heal, dps), and will have 5 classes at launch. PvE is your classic MMORPG style, but sounds like they will be having a 3 realm system for PvP which could be interesting. Following is a YouTube video (from Cryy) that has a list of what to expect in Astellia (the list shows up at 2:45 in the video): The most interesting thing that may set it apart from other MMOs is the companion system. At launch you will have 30 different Astell (their name for your companion) that you can collect. At this time in Korea they might be able to buy Astell packs from marketplace that gives random Astell, but the producers say for NA version you will be able to earn all that in game (will cover marketplace more later). As you get and use the Astell you can level them up and if you get duplicates you can merge them into your existing to help power them up. You use the Astell similar to pets in that they will help hunt, and they have different types of Astell so you can change out as you need for situations. You can also keep one out free of cost, or summon up to 3 total with the more you have out the faster your yellow bar depletes; so you can summon a couple extra to help in a tight situation and then put them away before your yellow bar fully depletes. Some other notes on the game that I’ve seen so far: The game has been in development for 7 years The game is on UE3 and I’ve seen at leaast one video where there was some big FPS drop in super crowded area The game will be B2P so far The game will have microtransactions, but publisher is saying it will be cosmetics only (heard that a time or two so far) Group size is 4 (but each person can have their Astell out so technically From what I can tell PvP takes place in Pvp zones so no forced PvP The dungeons will have various difficulty levels; including solo, with the more difficult getting the better loot Publisher is saying that the dungeons shouldn’t take more than ~a hour Game is coming to NA Summer of 2019; publisher said they should have a couple of beta tests prior to that. Right now classes are gender locked, but publisher is saying for NA they want to get rid of gender lock. They also admit that might not happen before launch for all classes, but if they are when they unlock the genders they will offer free character change when they are brought in (basically if you want a female warrior at launch but can only make male, go ahead and start playing the male warrior and as soon as they unlock genders you will be able to change to female for free if you still want). They were recently at Pax South and did a Twitch Stream: Astellia Online Panel - Pax South 2019 Not sure if much other interest out there, but something going to keep my eye on.
