If you’ve been dying to jump into Nexon’s free-to-play MMORPG Riders of Icarus but didn’t want to splurge on the Founder’s Pack, well today ends your wait. Riders of Icarus launches its open beta today at 11 AM Eastern US time, you can download Nexon’s Launcher here, or head on over to Steam (you’ll have to wait until 11 AM Eastern for the “Free” button though) and download it if you haven’t already.

Nexon is hosting a number of events to celebrate the open beta launch, as well. These include free Dragon Fire Shoulder Ravens for all players that login, a dungeon running event, a daily login bonus for the opening month, and more. You can check out all the events and changes made to the game in the open beta patch notes.

Don’t forget to put on your special cape if you took part in at least one closed beta phase, and make sure to stop by our Riders of Icarus Community Livestream later this month!

    Those graphics are absolutely unacceptable for a mid-2016 release.

    Just another Korean mass-produced game.
