Aeria Games Begins Grand Fantasia Closed Beta
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – November 17, 2009 – Aeria Games has announced the start of Closed Beta for its eagerly anticipated title Grand Fantasia. Players will get their first chance to play the game starting on Wednesday, November 18.

Grand Fantasia is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that has enjoyed great success in other territories. It is currently being prepped for the English language release later this year by US-based publisher Aeria Games.

Set in an expansive and carefully crafted fantasy world, Grand Fantasia offers players a variety of engaging features, including: branching class trees, innovative pet customization and crafting systems, incredible mounts, and auction houses. Players looking for more of an action-oriented experience can also participate in player-versus-player (PvP) combat, team-based battlefields, and challenging dungeons.

“Closed Beta is a crucial step in bringing Grand Fantasia to players, “ said Brian DeSanti, Associate Producer on Grand Fantasia. “We are excited to launch an MMORPG that seamlessly blends an anime aesthetic with Western-style gameplay.”

Players who take part in the early test period will be eligible to receive special in-game items and beta rewards.
