Webzen has just announced that the first beta test for ELOA: Elite Lord of Alliance in North America and Europe begins on October 13. This Hack ‘n’ Slash MMORPG is developed by Korean studio NPicsoft and you can sign up for the beta at the official website. The client is already available to download for the players that have signed up for the beta. This beta test will last for roughly one week and all characters and player progress will be wiped when it ends.
The official ELOA website also includes a community forum and further information on the game, such as the system requirements.
ELOA uses a not so common isometric point of view in Diablo style and players can choose one of five playable classes divided in four races, with each class having three very different combat stances between which you can switch mid-combat. Here is the latest trailer to get you in the mood.
