Elyon (the MMORPG formerly known as Ascent: Infinite Realm) is ramping up its communication with its Western fans as it preps for its upcoming closed beta test. This week the Elyon team is doing an AMA on the MMORPG Subreddit.
Elyon will be hosted by the official r/MMORPG page, though it looks to be happening during day-time hours in Korea. The Elyon AMA will take place on April 14th at 10pm PDT/April 15th 1am EDT so you'll need to be up late to catch it in real time it seems. However, the AMA will see the MMO's community manager Yukimura answer community questions about the Korean MMORPG.
Elyon is ramping up its Western marketing lately as it is getting ready for its upcoming Closed Beta test here in the West. Last week the team took to a fan-run Elyon discord to answer some questions the team is getting from fans eager for more information, including the business model in the West and more. The team is still planning on a buy-to-play business model with microtransactions, just like it is currently. However, the team was also asked about the old Steampunk airship combat first shown off when the MMO was revealed as Ascent: Infinite Realm.
While we don't yet know a release date for the MMO in the West, or even an exact date for the upcoming Closed Beta test, but account registrations are available on the official website. If you want to see the MMO in action, you can check out footage from last year's GStar showing off some dungeon content, or even check out the game on Twitch.
