Open Beta for 4story online has started last October 20, 2008. Since I already have an account during the closed beta test I dont need to create a new account for this but Unfortunately, the closed beta characters I had before were already wiped out. So, its a fresh start for everyone.
According to their official newsletter which was sent out to all beta testers several changes were implemented on the Open Beta client which includes :
- Updates of Early Tutorial Quests
- Addition of Letter Quests in early stages
- Modification of images of Named Boss Monsters
- Correction and Revision of English in Quests
- Changes in image of some Items
- Correction of Bugs in Movement of Monsters
- Correction of Problems in the Map
- Improvement of Skill Use with correction of bugs
Another thing is if you only have an average Internet DSL speed and you are located in the Philippines its better to play the game early morning. MOst of the time International games like 4story runs smoothly in the morning.
I was not able to participate in the first closed beta testing for the game 4story which ended last July 20, 2008. However, ZEMI INTERACTIVE INC. did had a second closed beta which started August 8 and will end on August 12, 2008.
The First Glance
Let’s talk about the game 4story. The game is a 3D MMORPG. The first time I saw the web advertisement it immediately catches my attention because the graphics is just wonderful. This made me download the 4story’s installer and waited for the second open beta. When I finally went through the character creation I told myself I will be putting more game hours to the game.
The Characters and Races
4story has 3 races Human, Werebeast and Fairy. Each race has 6 character classes namely Warrior, Priest, Assassin, Archer, Wizard and Summoner. I think 4story is one of those MMORPG has a complete character classes. The character movement and game keys were just standard and normal.
After spending an hour or two playing and exploring the game and I can say the game somehow has a lot of Quest as I was already finished several of it in a short time. Since the game is new I still need to explore more and probably will do a second post about this.
