Not every English translation of a game lands in the western world first. Back in October, we announced Korean-based publisher Mgame had struck a deal with SEA publisher Cubizone to publish the first English translation of the non-target action MMORPG Yulgang 2 in SEA regions. Cubizone initially intended to release the MMORPG last year, but elected to delay the closed beta till late in December, pushing the open beta release to today.
Although the servers are based in SEA, the English release of Yulgang 2 is a global one. Players can access the servers from practically anywhere without fear of an IP block. Having tested the connection from the United States, we found the game perfectly playable, with little visible delay. Having said that, the current localization version leaves much to be desired. The original Yulgang actually had an official release in the west, but under the name Scions of Fate. Both are based on a popular Korean Manga called “Ruler of the Land” written in the mid nineties.
