burda:ic, a leading publisher of online games worldwide, today announced that its newest MMORPG, ARGO Online, has officially completed the final phase of Closed Beta Testing. During this phase, a variety of data and feedback was gathered in preparation for the game’s upcoming Open Beta, which will officially go live with an enormous variety of never-before-seen content on April 7.
Interesting facts gathered from the Closed Beta Test include:
Number of Monsters killed: Nearly 5,000,000
Number of quests finished: Nearly 55,000
Player Distribution Between Noblian - Floresslah Factions: 51:49
Most popular classes: Explorer (1st Place), Warrior (2nd Place), Druid (3rd Place)
“It’s fascinating gathering all this information from our Closed Beta,” said Achim Kaspers, Managing Director of burda:ic. “What we enjoyed the most, however, was the feedback from our players. We received a ton of valuable information, suggestions and tips from our community, and we are excited to implement what we can from their comments to make ARGO Online the best experience possible.”
Once the Open Beta begins, all players will be able to join and play ARGO Online immediately, gaining access to new classes and dungeons which were not available during Closed Beta Testing. The level cap will be raised to 40, and all 16 in-game classes will be open. Those new classes, along with those already available, will have access to ten new dungeons, an entirely new stage of occupation growth, and plenty of additional weapons, armor, mounts, and more.
