Nexon just announced the open beta date for Navy Field 2, the upcoming free-to-play real-time strategy MMO. The beta begins on April 18th.
Navy Field 2 includes a more user friendly tutorial, allowing players to fully understand the Navy Field 2 experience, interface changes to enable a more MMO experience and scaling the game to make it even larger than before.
In Navy Field 2, players will experience impressive naval action with large-scale warfare with up to 64 players in 32 vs. 32 in PvP battles. Players will build their ships to fight for one of four nations, which are Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan. With over 170 ships that can be remodeled into 456 different styles; including destroyers, battle cruisers, aircraft carriers, and submarines, the level of customization has been tremendously evolved compared to Navy Field 1. Yet, building a ship with the most fire power will not guarantee to win a battle in Navy Field 2.
In the Open Beta Test, players can experience missions like Dover, Midway and the Solomon-Isles by using historically accurate fleets to capture the atmosphere of the time. There will be two game modes such as Total War (Deathmatch) where players earn points with every ship they destroy, and Base Occupation where players have to occupy the Strongholds of their enemies.
