ASTA’s open beta has officially kicked off and the launcher is available for download. In addition to making the launcher available to players, Webzen has also implemented an automated system for players to reset their account’s secondary password.

Now that open beta has launched, players will not have to worry any more about character wipes, although they are warned to expect bugs and asked to report them.

For those who participated in the free-to-play game’s initial beta test, Webzen is offering a coupon code that will grant a special title when entered. Note that the code will not work if your account was not used to access ASTA in November of 2015.

For details on the Open Beta and launch events — including weekend giveaways — check out the official announcement on the ASTA site.

    Please try it before judging, and if you do not like it, put in mind that many others do, so just leave it to be if you have nothing constructive to say…Amazing.

    Korean recycling game. Dies in the Asian market comes back for the US and EUROPEAN market just to cash in for the last time and then dies again after i would say 6 months or maybe a year…. Plz Korea stop flood ouer market with shitty games like this. We dont like them, we dont play them, we hate them. They are boring, stupid and 99% of them are braindead grindfests the western market dont needs. Keep them burn them do what ever you like with them but dont bring them over to us.
    Japan should start to bring the good shit over Like Monsterhunter Online or PHANTASY STAR ONLINE 2 or DRAGON DOGMA ONLINE and we would pay them like crazy and they would swim in money…. but they are to Xenophobic and they hate us to much to bring this games over…..

      It was shut down by Hangame, because they wanted to invest in the mobile market alone, get your facts straight before spreading rumors. The game was doing well there and there were many players that played it and everyone in Korea that played the game is now complaining that the game was shut down.

        But it really is a generic MMORPG. There’s nothing unique about it that would draw a large and lasting playerbase.

          Who says that generic MMOs can`t draw someone`s attention? Generic is more rare than innovative these days in the MMO genre. I long for an old school game 🙂

          Just like WOW is generic by today’s standard and for some stupid reason people still play it.

    Ok played for 5 hrs now!
    It is OK game! Noting New but OK! i really did like maps design and animations, random events on maps remind me on rifts in RIFT, gameplay reminds me on jade dynasty mixed with wow, English voices are meeeh i liked korean ones better.Leveling is quest based.
    So overall i had some fun with that map events and dungeons are ok too.
    Client optimatization is not really done well for the low end pc since there is little options.
    7/10 For me 🙂

    Shut down in 3….2…… ok fine.. 1 week.

    • LAMBDA471 on March 2, 2016

      The game is really awesome, I don’t know what are you talking about. It’s better than many other games.

      • Curst on March 2, 2016

        It’s already closed in Korea though. Which scares the $#!7 out of me whenever I want to try it. Don’t want to invest time into a game that might close down soon. Nothing seems to last lately. This has to be some kind of phobia. >_<

        • Meh on March 2, 2016

          It was actually shut down for a whole different reason, not because the game was bad or doing badly, publisher simply decided to switch to mobile gaming, but still i just can’t find anything new or exciting here, it’s same tab target combat with average graphics and worst part published by Webzen, so i just know they gona get too greedy at some point and start ruining the game and turn it p2w.

        • Peter on March 4, 2016

          Actually ASTA is not the only game that was closed in KR by hangame. Hell, they even closed TERA which is doing fine in US/EU!

      • idgaf on March 3, 2016

        Can you give me the same drugs you had???? Would be great to smoke some and then start to think shit games are ok… Bruhhhh!!!

          What am I supposed to do? Follow the herd into Blade & Soul – a game with ugly animal-like children, oversexualized female character with thighs as huge as a house, where there isn’t even body gear, except the so-called “soul shields and costumes”?

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
