Aeria Games is taking Echo of Soul to the next stage of development, pushing the MMORPG into open beta, following what the company deems a “successful closed beta period,” in which players spent 860,000 hours in the game and completed 21 million quests. After handing out all those quest rewards, I think the NPCs deserve a break, don’t you?

Nope! Back to handing out loot for you!

You can hop into Echo of Soul right now by downloading the game from its website, and enjoy the new trailer, with music by “modern-nature-pop” band Fahrenhaidt. While you’re downloading, check out our First Look of the game, and leave a comment below to let us know what you plan to do once you’re in-game!

    This game is a big fail, it’s sad…
    ;
    Game could be fun, but it’s got way too many issues to count to make it fun.

    What’s wrong with Aeria Games? Idk so much about publisher

  3. anip on June 1, 2015

    blah, they didn’t do anything with OBT at all…

    not gonna play the game.

    gonna go back and play some other game while waiting for Black Desert, Blade and Soul, and possibly Revelation

    a closed beta that didn’t last 2 weeks ? because it’s a failier
    i tried the game and it’s as crappy as hell
    why would i keep playing a game looks so old with nothing special if i already have better one
    Tera if i want action based or Rift if i want point and click based ?

      Actually a week after CB they sent emails saying that CB wont need keys anymore, that anyone could get into the CB… (whats the point on the word “Close” anyway, lol).
      Agreed with Tera and Rift, those are the best F2P games at the moment, Action Combat and tab targeting respectively.

    All MMOS will die when blade & soul comes out. And will be dominate over any mmo that comes out until Black Deseret comes out or better. Why did they even bother developing this old generic garbage?

    • Luis Zaragoza on May 29, 2015

      this guy said all game will die when blade and souls comes out nigga please it beens 5 years its a copy of tera lol

      • Lynxy on June 1, 2015

        To be honest, BnS came out WAY before Tera, it had a step back on launching west 4 years ago almost at the same time when tera got its F2P release in EU/NA.

      Blade and Soul is very overrated and quite dated already. Try it on the private servers, you will see what I mean. You’re right about this game though.

      Black Desert will be the next big thing depending on how they monetize it.

      • Trumbles on May 30, 2015

        Just hope that Black Desert comes to NA/EU in a more timely manner than Blade & Soul..

        Hopefully it’s not obsolete by the time it gets released here.

        I maxed on the CH servers its not that bad but after spoiling it I’m like….whatever….
        PSO2 is still fun to this day

    860.000 hours played ……………can’t rly blame them tbh this year was a total flop for mmo’s nothing good being released. and next year will be the same with BDO not having anything worthwhile to do luring players in with pruuuuteeeeey greaphuuuuucs.

    • Merkadis on May 29, 2015

      Pruuutey graphuuucs is the most important shiz in the universe, didn’t ya know? xD As long as it looks pruuutey no matter how much of a gigantic pile of shit everything else is it’s officially – AMAZING BADASS GAME.

      • Merkadis on May 29, 2015

        Besides, this one is Aeria hosted.
        Everything hosted by that company is walked right past by self-respecting, experienced gamers.

      • hovsep56 on May 30, 2015

        lol that was pretty funny xD

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
