MU Legend Open Beta Kicks Off

One of the earliest MMOs of last decade comes back in revolutionized fashion. MU Legend is a new hack ‘n’ slash online action RPG game that expands the lore and world of its predecessor, MU Online. The MU Legend open beta launch started last Tuesday, allowing players to choose from five unique classes. Players can engage the game through solo and party play in different maps and battlefields across the MU world and Pandemonium.

To assure players that the action RPG would be fully working, the game went through a two closed beta tests and one stress test. Webzen‘s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Dennis Cyzbulka noted to the players:

Now, the fun starts for the fans, and our attention is focused entirely on making their game experience the most unforgettable yet. We’re excited for players to experience first-hand the passion that we’ve put into MU Legend and look forward to seeing them all in-game

All the in-game data gathered from the open data will be retained, such as characters, purchases, and equipment. Moreover, Webzen developers are planning to deploy updates and extensions like combat features before the year ends.
