Elyon was delayed earlier this morning, moving into late October, but it wasn't the only announcement Kakao made regarding the MMORPG. The game is now free-to-play, and it's something that Nick thinks will benefit not only the Korean MMO, but its rival, New World.
Amazon's New World Open Beta is in full swing, and the dev team has created its own interactive map of Aeternum to help players better familiarize themselves with the world during the test this weekend.
While Lost Ark is free-to-play, this doesn't mean Amazon and Smilegate won't want players to crack open their wallets and consume. As a result, the developers broke down the different Founder's Packs players can grab for the upcoming MMOARPG when it hits Western shores in the Fall.
Amazon's Scot Lane, game director on New World, has taken to the MMO's forums to discuss server instability and ensuring worlds are available during the MMO's closed beta.

While the issue seems more hardware-based than the game itself, Amazon did take to their forums to detail some steps players could take in order to ensure that their GPUs would remain unaffected.
