Ethyrial: Echoes of Yore is hosting a timed playtest of its upcoming MMO as part of Steam Next Fest this week, giving players access to the old-school-inspired MMO from now through February 13th. 

Ethyrial: Echoes of Yore is an upcoming  MMORPG that aims to draw inspiration from the genre's old-school roots. Developer Gellyberry Studios has opened up the playtest server for Steam's Next Fest, giving potential players the chance to check it out ahead of its eventual release, which the team teases players can check out 26 different vocations during the test. 

The developers will be featured on the Steam Next Fest live stream (though it'll be pre-recorded) today at 5pm EST, and on Wednesday at 9pm EST where they will be showing off the demo. 

Ethyrial: Echoes of Yore features a character creator where the developer claims your stats "truly matter," where each "choice and skill mastery is essential to avoiding paths to brutal defeat." There are 26 different vocations to choose from in the build now, giving a dizzying level of customization to your build, as well as how you build your team as you jump into dungeons, fight bosses, and more. Ehyrial also features an extensive crafting system as well as non-instanced housing, giving players the ability to build where they can - and fight over territory in its open PvP system.

You can download the demo now through its Steam page. Be sure to tune into the developer stream tomorrow night at 9pm EST/6pm PST to see the developers putting the demo through its paces.
