New F2P MMORPG Astellia Royal Bears Resemblance To Its B2P Predecessor
Astelia Online might not be free-to-play, but now it's got a spin-off game that is, and that appears to carry over many of the same elements of its predecessor. Astellia Royal launched last week and is a free-to-play MMORPG developed by Studio 8, a subsidiary of Barunson E&A, and being published by Way2Bit, the same team that brought Astellia into the world.
As in the original, you'll have Astels -- little chibi-style angelic creatures -- to aid you in a variety of ways. There are 35 Astels in all, each offering unique skills and providing tactical choices in battle. Apart from that twist, Astellia Royal offers all the usual content you'd expect from an MMORPG, include PvE, PvP, open world, crafting, dungeons, and more.
Judging by the website, there's not much to distinguish Astellia Royal from Astellia, so it's possible that the second game is more of a duplicate of the first than a spin-off. If you've played Astellia, give Astellia Royal a look and tell us what you think about the similarities and differences between the two!
