Scarlet Blade, the over-the-top mature themed MMORPG from Aeria Games has officially gone into closed beta today. Like in the past, Aeria Games continues to use the term “Closed Beta” while disregarding what the word closed actually implies. The beta is available now for everyone to download and play without the need for a key.
I managed to jump into the game for a couple of hours last night and I was impressed…..Impressed that an MMORPG managed to so quickly surpass TERA in the “how can we make this as sexual as possible and get away with it” department. Heck, I’d say it surpasses it with just the first load screen before you even get a chance to make your character! The game literally takes every opportunity to zoom in on a character’s exposed chest and butt. It certainly knows what demographic it’s shooting for and it is not ashamed.
Aeria Games is offering Scarlet Blade Founder’s Packs for players interested in getting a few extra items, as well as the usual exclusive mounts and costumes. Speaking of items, there is apparently an item in the cash shop that allows you to see everyone naked. I imagine those that buy this are the same individuals who /bow to create sexual innuendo poses with their avatars.
