MAIET has finally announced the open beta date for the third-person shooter GunZ 2. Ok, so we didn’t actually get a date, but we did get a month which is better than nothing right? The shooter which originally launched in Korea back in 2011, will begin open beta testing on Steam sometime in December.

GunZ 2 has already begun closed beta testing in Taiwan and Europe, with plans for at least 1 closed beta test in North America before the open beta launch. The game will launch in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Korean with the option to choose between English and Korean voices.

  1. Nothing will be as good as the old one.. :'( just gotta hope the new one is fun to play..looks like it will be. Still R.I.P GunZ the Duel.

  2. About time! I remember playing this around 2004, back then they were just starting to toy around with a class system. Glad to see this again with better graphics.

    • hackers? Buddy that’s like wishing for unicorns to fart fresh rice krispy squares! This game will, without a doubt, be hacked. There’s always one little bastard punk out there who has the ambition to find a way and then spread it around like a virus.

  3. this is all bullshit i meen all thoice games eu/an versions thay dont have to do that a game can be hostedi n eu and runned world wide so its all jsut bullshit to teaz people ….know what i quit gaming.

    • Ever played a game hosted in EU from across an ocean? It’s not fun at all. It’s not as easy as that, you need to have servers on location to get the game to function properly in certain regions, otherwise you have major latency issues and server overload problems.

  4. I used to love this game, it was one of the first online games that I played for real.
    I remember whoever used the cash shop had mega fire swords of doom and whoever didn’t pay was only there to make the people o pay feel better with themselves…
    Somehow it didn’t bother me backthere…
    Can’t wait to give this one a try!

    • I might look at this one, but the moment I see exploited combat(I’m looking at you butterfly exploit >_>) I’m shelving it xD


  5. I think we all know that a lot of teen-aged boys will be playing the female characters and looking underneath the skirts because from what I saw in the trailer it is possible. But it is a Japanese game so what do you expect?

  6. Omg that first map, is the same of the first Gunz? Damn so many memories, in fact of being raped by ppl with swords jumping like monkeys…good times…Well, looking forward to it!
