After Nexon closed it down last year, we thought it the end for Dungeon Fighter Online, a side-scrolling online multiplayer arcade-style beat-em-up in the vein of classics like Double Dragon. Not so, says developer Neople. There is now an alpha test running from the original developers themselves, and you can get in on it.
If you’re desperately searching for the link to sign up, head here. However, for those still here, keep reading. Neople have been quick to point out that while this is an alpha test, there’s no guarantee the game is coming back for good and that we can’t take this as any sign of an “official re-open(ing)”. An Alpha test though sounds like something might be very much on the cards for a possible full return, though.
Dungeon Fighter Online lets players select a character, such as Male Gunners, Slayers, Priests and more and then head them into staged battles to beat the tarnation out of all sorts of bad guys. These characters can level up and then advance in classes to become more specialized and powerful, while also decking themselves out in epicly fine gear. You can also try your hand against a fellow human player in player-versus-player.
Dungeon Fighter Online is having its alpha test right now on PC. You can get it here.
