Were you looking forward to trying out the Ragnarok Online 2 open beta this week? If you don’t live in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand or Vietnam, you’re going to have to wait a little longer.


A day before the Ragnarok Online 2 open beta kicks off, the game’s publisher in South East Asia, Asiasoft Online, have revealed that their licensing agreement with developer, Gravity Co., limits their game service to the aforementioned locales.


“These aforementioned licence terms will take full effect from the start of OBT tomorrow and we deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused to players,” Asiasoft Online posted to the game’s Facebook page this morning.


Ragnarok Online 2 will be made available in other countries, such as North America and the Philippines, later this year, however. Gravity have plans to make the game available in these territories in the first half of 2013, so U.S. players may not have long to wait.
