Nexon and WeMade Entertainment are adding a new game to their free-to-play lineup. Riders of Icarus is a new MMORPG featuring aerial combat using flying mounts.
Riders of Icarus is designed by WeMade to make aerial combat the focus of the game while allowing players to collect a wide variety of flying mounts. WeMade Producer Seok Hoon stated in a press release that the company wants “to bring an all-new element to MMORPGs: aerial combat.” He goes on to say:
“There are many games with dragons and other flying mounts, but they hardly ever impact battles in a meaningful and entertaining way. In Riders of Icarus, mounts truly add another level of challenge and excitement, delivering expansive vertical gameplay in addition to action-oriented ground mount combat.”
Mounts include, but are definitely not limited to, dragons, pegasi, owls, bears, and more.
Those interested in checking the game out can sign up for a local server beta test (North America and Mexico) -- which will run from Thursday, Jan 28 to Tuesday, Feb 2. A larger closed beta test for North America, Mexico, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand will be announced at a later time.
