Webzen's Asian fantasy MMORPG Asta: The War of Tears and Winds has its first beta test scheduled for this November, and Webzen's got a new-ish trailer -- an earlier one had audio issues -- to hype you up.

It's a lengthy and mostly unrestricted test, too. Starting Nov. 3, all players with a Webzen account will be able to check out the game for around a full month and put it through its paces. Players will be able to try out character creation and the game's talent trees, dungeons, PvP battlegrounds, a varied crafting system, guild battles, and more.

The down side? After the beta, progress and characters will be wiped ("ASTA la vista, baby!") so don't get too attached to your creations. If you're interested or want to learn more, head on over to the ASTA website.
