Closed Beta 2 is officially a go in Legends of Aria. Servers have been wiped and everyone is off to a new start as they explore new territory, the new map system, the updated graphics and much more. Testers will be integral in providing feedback "to prioritize [developers'] efforts in Open Beta". The goal is to bring about Open Beta testing towards the end of August or in early September. In the meantime, "thousands of trial keys" will be provided to help stress test servers.
Beyond open beta, and once devs "have worked out the major stability and performance issues, [they] will do the final wipe of servers. This begins Early Access launch".

The final step is to put Legends of Aria on Steam. We’re still hoping for this year, but it all depends on what you have to tell us during these last rounds of testing. And of course, we have to finish the major content patch planned for that launch….
I personally have never been more excited about the future for Legends of Aria and I hope you all feel the same. Thank you all for being a part of this journey with us. Your feedback is absolutely vital to us as we steer the ship towards our Early Access and final wipe.
On Friday, July 13th at 5:00 pm Pacific / 8:00 pm Eastern, the Legends of Aria team will be on hand via its Twitch channel to answer viewer questions and will simultaneously be live at the Valus Theatre in game.
