Nexon has revealed the first information about its forthcoming Riders of Icarus, a forthcoming free-to-play MMO that will allow players participate in aerial combat. Players will be able to fly on mounts as diverse as bears to fire-breathing dragons. Combat will take place on land and in the air.
In Riders of Icarus, players will explore a vast, majestic and ever-expanding world where they can collect and train hundreds of different wild beasts, taming them to become rideable mounts with unique special abilities. As a legendary Rider, with renowned combat abilities, players will coordinate with other heroes both in the air and on the ground to engage in theatrical boss battles utilizing the game’s frenetic action-oriented melee combo system. With hundreds of ground and aerial mounts to collect, the sky is no longer the limit for the Riders of Icarus, who fight to protect mankind from an ancient invading evil.
The best news is that the first round of closed beta testing is scheduled to begin on Thursday, January 28th and will run through Tuesday, February 2nd in both North America and Mexico. At a later date, Europe, Australia and New Zealand will be added to CBT activities.
