There’s one more Korean MMORPG coming our way – ASTA: The War of Tears and Winds, developed by Polygon games and soon to be published in North America and Europe by Webzen. While this game has seen better days in Asian territories (the South Korean server should be about to close), this game is often compared to World of Warcraft and is a decent experience overall that deserves some attention.

The game world in ASTA is inspired by Asian culture and it definitely features some crazy big monsters and vibrant colors. There’s the usual PvP and guild battles, as well as crafting and a player-driven economy. The soundtrack was composed by Yang Bang-ean, also responsible for the Aion soundtrack. There’s no date yet for the beta test, but it should happen before the end of the year.

If you want to learn about ASTA right away, all you have to do is watch our first impressions on the Korean version below.
