Dublin, Ireland – June 10th, 2013 – Webzen Inc, a global, pioneering free-to-play developer and publisher, is delighted to announce that Age of Wulin, the upcoming free-to-play martial arts MMORPG, will enter Closed Beta Testing the 17th of June 2013.
On that day, Webzen Inc. plans to initially launch the European English server for Age of Wulin. German and French servers will follow at a later stage.
“We’re pleased that after an epic production phase, we’re finally able to open the game in European English”, said Webzen Producer Alexis Guariguata. “We’re still working on the German and French translations, and will release more information as soon as we’re able to.”
“We are very happy to finally see the hard development work of many years between Webzen and our developer partner SnailGames now entering its most exciting phase so far: the final sprint until the game’s launch. We want to design this phase and the launch to be as convenient and smooth for players as possible, and we would like to thank all Age of Wulin fans who have been following the game over the past years for their support. We’re very much looking forward to seeing them in game from the 17th onwards!”
During the Closed Beta Testing phase on the European English server, starting with the loyal fans who have supported the game during pre-production for many months, players will be granted continuous and free access to the game.
Beta key distribution has already started through various channels and will be extended soon. All keys will grant early and free access to the closed public beta testing on the European English servers.

Age of Wulin is an epic free to play MMORPG set in Imperial China, which revolves around the lore and practice of Chinese martial arts within the Wuxia universe. Gamers can join eight different factions (martial arts schools), each with their own unique style of combat, and experience deep character development. Players will not be bound by a traditional levelling system, instead they will have the freedom to choose how they want to master their character by acquiring skills through school quests, and spying/stealing them from other characters or schools. Freedom of choice is a theme that runs throughout Age of Wulin as players can choose from a wide array of professions and align themselves with good or evil through their actions. The choices made will ultimately determine many different outcomes and provide for a personalized story, which is unique for every player. Age of Wulin will offer a unique MMORPG experience in a gigantic open world, including mass-scale PvP and PvE features such as guild warfare and battles for up to 1,300 players simultaneously.
Age of Wulin will be available in English in 2013 from the gPotato.eu portal, with the closed beta test starting on the European English server on June 17th, 2013.
