I’ve waited until now to announce the 2Moons Open Beta in my Blog because I think the store is an important addition.
Acclaim keeps adding new features, and itâ€™s really quite exciting to watch this game taking off. We’ve had over 500,000 people download it and the servers are filled with people playing it 24/7.
Hey, it’s already a hit MMORPG!
I’ve got a GM account, so I’ve taken a Level 150 Bagi Warrior with everything, and cruise around to chat. It’s fun to see just how high you can go in the game. It reminds me when I started to play World of Warcraft and I first saw someone on a mount go by, it was really inspiring to press on and see if you can achieve that status in the game.
One of the reasons I chose to work on this title was seeing how the artists and programmers were really working hard to make the character growth really really visual. They’ve done a great job on that aspect and so when level 150 characters fight, it’s like a light show, with blood flying. The mounts we have are also really cool, but you really need to work your way up there.
Iâ€™ve been playing as a GM for a while, itâ€™s fun to teleport to the Gold Farmers and toss them into jail. Or stripping them naked and throwing them into a PvP area.
The most important part is that the game remains free. For now weâ€™re also running without in-game advertising, so dive on in and give it a try.
I hope to see you in there, make sure to say HI.
Here’s some images from the game:
