**UPDATE**: The original article was incorrect about the location of ASTA’s live status. This news was actually for the South American version of the game published by AXeso5. We apologized for the confusion.

ASTA, a free-to-play MMORPG published by WEBZEN, has achieved gold status and is officially live as of today. A press release announced the launch and the end of the Open Beta period earlier in the day.

As part of the launch, several new features have been added to the game — including an update titled “The Berserker Awakening”, which introduces more levels, maps, missions, and even a new tribe (Rakshasa), and a new Berserker class. It also includes additional dungeons and raids.

To reward those who participated in the Beta test, the developer is granting them a special “Founder” status. Those who join now will be given an exclusive pet.

    congratulations on the confusing post.
    the news is about the south american version but then it somehow turned into a post about the webzen version.
    dont know if this is an old post or whatever but it says its going live TODAY and OPEN BETA even though its been for a few months

    Played it and is a worse copy of Aion with 0 players. Ever wondered how it feels to play an MMORPG and have all the world to yourself? This is the game for you.

    Just play Aion, far better.

    as long as this game still got the issue with the NVIDIA graphic cards, i won’t be playing it! I’ve been expecting a fix for 3 months now and nothing happend! Bullshit developer, worst publisher on the planet (Webzen)!

          Asta have many publishers. Webzen handles Europe and North America, Axeso5 South America, Qeon handles Indonesia. We already officialy launched over a month ago, together with Berserker update, Axeso5 just did the same.

          So as Webzen, we would like to congratulate our colleagues a successful launch.
