CABAL 2 Wants Hardcore Beta Testers to Sign Up Now

It's been a long time coming. In some parts of the world the original Cabal Online came out a little less than 10 years ago. Not too many years after that, fans were screaming for a sequel and have been ever since. I remember chatting to MMOBombers about CABAL 2 and the rumors surrounding it when I first joined this site almost 5 years ago.

Fast forward to today and ESTGames has announced that CABAL 2 is just around the corner and needs some "gamers who long for the days of MMOs with deep, immersive RPG elements, epic skill-based battles and in-game communities that defined the word 'massive'" to sign up to not only take part in the upcoming closed beta, but to also have a chance to play as early as next week in a special focus test that starts on December 19th.

“The launch of the beta program and focus testing for CABAL 2 is the first step toward delivering the smooth, strategic and social MMO experience our passionate community deserves,” said Steve Pae, executive vice president of ESTSoft Inc. “With beta signups and the launch of our new forums, it’s finally time for the CABAL 2 community to officially come together, and we’ll reward a lucky few with the chance to be the first to experience the game through our focus group testing next week.”

If you've been waiting for CABAL 2, you can head over to the site now and sign up for both the Beta and the Focus tests.

Will CABAL 2 capture the more "hardcore" crowd of MMO players yearning for a more in-depth experience? We won't have to wait too long as CABAL 2 will be launching sometime in 2015.

The first Cabal wasn't anything that special to be honest. A lot of its so-called "action" came from overly long flashy skill animations. It really wasn't actual action..it was a tab target game, and a bland one at that. Generic, one might say. Though I did enjoy some music tracks from it.

So what should one expect from a sequel? Unless it literally changes everything about its own formula (effectively making it nothing like the original), I should say it will be another flash over substance affair. I hope they prove me wrong and make me eat crow, but I doubt it thus far.

I have mixed feelings for this game being a huge fan of Cabal Online the idea of a sequel excites me but I'm skeptical if it's even gonna be worth while it's already lost points from me being gender locked oh well we will see

This game would have been amazing like 7 years ago when it was first announced. The development time took so long that the MMO industry is currently in a completely different fad than point and click. The big thing right now is that weird psuedo-TPS action mmo thing (Guild Wars, Wildstar, Tera, Raiderz, Bless and I think EIN will be as well) and most point and clicks are being swept under the rug. Who knows though, /maybe/ it will be good and maybe it will revive the more traditional MMORPG.
