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.

Players interested in trying out Yulgang 2 for themselves can sign up here.

  1. Lol, SEA beta available to everyone–to LAG. I tried the SEA beta of RO2 when that happened and it was a complete nightmare.

  2. I CANT GET THE GAME TO INSTALL.;
    ITS BEEN 3 DAYS I’M SO MAD
    IVE DOWNLOADED THE TORRENT AND EACH OF THE FILES PARTS BUT ITS STILL SAYS A FILE IS CORRUPT.!?!?!?!
    SUCH A WASTE OF TIME

    • Yeah, one that started development after Blade and Soul yet made it through translation and open beta release before NCsoft even care to give us a point in the right direction.
      This one wins one a count of….We get to play it -_-

  3. The trailer has kind of a Dynasty Warriors vibe. Switch the orchestral score to a symphonic rock piece and it wouldn’t be entirely out of place in that series.

  4. Been playing today, have a lvl 23(or was it 24…) healer currently. I honestly dunno how many English speakers there are on my server. Most the chat I see isn’t in English.

    • I also started all mine at once, it’s telling me I have about an hour left. I’m also downloading/installing two other games. If your net speed or PC isn’t handling it well, I would try to just start all at once and find something to do afk. I know how that is, but naps are a thing 😉
