WEBZEN has announced that the open beta for its anime-inspired “triple-action” hack-‘n’-slash MMORPG ELOA: Elite Lord of Alliance will start on November 17th.
You can pre-download the open beta client on the ELOA website as long as you have a WEBZEN account. Once you start playing, you’re encouraged to leave feedback and bug reports on the game’s official forums.
In ELOA, you’ll be able to choose between five playable classes among four races, with each class having access to three combat stances – hence the “triple-action” feature.
Each of these three stances offer a different play style and you’ll need to switch between them as you fight through different enemies in order to overcome them effectively.
As you fight through the game and experience its story you’ll eventually be reborn as a legendary “Elite Lord,” awakening your character’s real power. There’s another story line that continues once you’re an Elite Lord, in which you fight new enemies, and guide the continent of Epheia towards peace and stability.
