In news that sort of snuck up on everyone, DK Online, yet another new MMORPG from Aeria Games, has moved into closed beta today.
DK Online, has been touted as a PvP oriented MMO, with huge PvP battles, and castle siege warfare, where you assault enemy castles to claim them and their respective territory for your guild. These battles can involve up to 25 attacking guilds against 5 defending guilds, and can last up to an hour and a half before a victor is declared. That is some pretty intense PKing.
DK Online seems to be using the same closed-but-not-really beta style used for Born to Fire, whereby anyone and everyone can join the closed beta without a beta key. This may be due to the industry becoming accustomed to calling the “release” phase of a game an open beta. So while DK Online is open to the public, it’s subject to wipes and closing at any time. Great Scott I think I’ve got it!
You can try out DK Online by heading over to the official site now.
