RaiderZ, the highly anticipated action combat MMORPG, opened up its closed beta test yesterday afternoon. Perfect World Entertainment announced that the beta would run from August 9th till August 29th. Players must have a closed beta key in order to join the beta.

Perfect World did hold a closed alpha test for RaideZ earlier this year. A few new things have been added to the closed beta since then starting with a level cap increase to 30, a new zone to explore, and new social features which allow you to craft guitars which you can then use to buff allies or smash "rock star style" on your enemies heads.

Do you feel it's been worth the wait? Tell us about your beta impressions in the comments below!

The game is as awsome as I imagined. I liked the graphics, the combos the questing and specially the fighting. I felt like playing a little bit of Rogue Galaxy, Final Fantasy XII (ps2) and Kingdoms of Amalur. Reckoning (ps3) all games that I really enjoyed. Of course there should be more content on it, like a bow and a dual dagger/sword user class but as nothing is perfect this game I may take serious.

Hey again mmobombers i have something interesting to say about the game well to start i was getting that error "cannot conect to server"for ages and when i finaly got into the game and was abble to play for the first 6 hours i take a break and when im going to logg again i cant :) error something about double loggin and as if that wasnt enough i was now going to try again and the antivirus thing just give me this message"error code 380 file may has been altered by virus or hacking tool" and now i ask you what am i supose to do :)?

I enjoyed the few hours played however I'm a bit disappointed at the graphics and the combat speed. The way the mobs lock on to you remind me of Aion and thats not a good thing. Too robot like. I'm hoping that since this is only a beta a higher graphical setting will be available when its fully released. I'm also hoping the devs can speed up the combat a bit. The game certainly has potential, but I don't think its quite there yet.

You've got a lot of European fans and subscribers. Cheers!

Downloaded fine for me, less than an hour. Played for a few hours, ran smooth at all settings for me. Seemed a little slow, not really what I am used to I guess, seemed kind of annoying to me as well having to use the keyboard so much to do everything like talking to NPC's, looting mobs, etc. Prefer to use my mouse for most operations. Combat was pretty good, visuals are decent, overall the graphics are not the greatest but better than alot of other f2P games. I probably won't play this game anymore though, just couldn't really get into it, I'll be spending most of my time in GW2.

Yo Magicman!! Well i agree with you for the most part. The combat in Tera has a better feeling to it. As i said in my last post i think "so far" RaiderZ questing is more entertaining then Tera by a long shot, I like that fact that Raiderz add some spice to there quests Like being able to pick up another weapon or a cannon and blow up pirates. In Tera it is nothing but a all day all night grind fest. I agree on the crafting ill give that to Tera for now. Pvp so far i can say but Tera will not be hard to beat there. So all around i think RaiderZ has the lead just for the fact is free, Yes Tera has some very nice stuff and i still play it and pay for it but the up sides to it are not worth $15 a month over RaiderZ Free to play. Thats my side of it Magicman.

Ok Ok so we have a lot of ppl bitching and crying about stupid stuff on this game...I guess thats all ppl are good at.. Yes the download was slow but you also have to understand the amount of ppl that were downloading this game A LOT !! mmobomb, had what 20,000 beta keys and i have the list of all the other websites that got beta keys and WOW!!! so yea ill deal with a slow download... The game could look better yes ill agree on that but after playing all night and seeing the quests and how smooth the game is on max i have to say it's a lot better then 98% of the crap coming out right now.
And to the guy that said this is worse then Tera, I have been playing Tera, since day 1 and Tera, looks amazing yes but pvp and quests might just be the worse shit ever. Tera, is way wore at questing then WOW, i fell asleep questing in Tera, and it's P2P!!! So as far as free games go this game is worth the wait and time!! It's the only game i like from PW so thats saying something.

Yo Magicman whats up how have ya been?

Well Frogster is holding RaiderZ too, O downloaded the game in like an hour, installed and will play later tonight, but comparing publishers I'll keep on frogster, even the website is way much better.
