"We're excited to be able to invite more players to experience RaiderZ in the upcoming Closed Beta," said Senior Producer Mark Hill. "With its skill-based combat, classless character system, and impressive bosses that will throw, eat, or even smash players into the ground, RaiderZ represents a truly unique MMORPG experience. Players who already got a chance to try RaiderZ during the Alpha Test phase can also look forward to striving towards a new level cap of 30, exploring the Makot Village, and much more."
In RaiderZ, players must hunt together or die alone as they pursue the most dangerous and vicious creatures in the land of Rendel.
