Back in December Asiasoft Online announced they would be publishing Ragnarok Online 2 for English Audiences. Soon after it was discovered that while the game was to be released for English speaking areas, the fine print dictated that these areas would be limited to Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. So while the game is -to my knowledge- still accessible through Asiasoft, the new-new official English version is gettings its first beta weekend starting tomorrow.
Ragnarok Online 2 will be officially published in North America by WarpPortal best known for publishing ROSE Online and Maestia along with the original version of Ragnarok. WarpPortal’s first RO2 beta weekend is set to begin tomorrow April 18th and last through Monday April 22nd. During the beta weekend WarpPortal plans to host several giveaways, contests and GM-run events.
This version of RO2 will most likely be the same as Asiasoft’s release with -hopefully- none of the rubber-banding lag issues players experienced while using specific class abilities.
