2nd GodsWar Alpha Test to Begin Tomorrow, Jan. 8

Instead of moving GodsWar Online into closed beta, IGG has decided to undergo a second alpha test first. The second alpha is set to begin tomorrow, Jan. 8, at 9 p.m. EST. If you're planning on playing, you can download the new client today right here.

With more brand-new content, game version 1.85 will be adopted in this test. For example, we have improved the guild system and guild quests, added a suit system, and beautified special gear effects.

IGG will not be deleting players' data after this alpha test is complete, so now's a good time to jump into GodsWar Online if you're interested in playing. To obtain an activation code, all you need to do is ask in this thread and have a post count of more than five.

New Video Shows Priest Class Skills

IGG has released a new trailer for GodsWar Online, its first foray into 3D MMORPGs. This video focuses on the class skills of the priest. Here's some information on priests straight from an IGG press release:

Priests are holy men who have the powers of Heal, Area Heal, Mana Shield, Dripstone, Holy Light and Stalagmite Skills. As the envoys of the Gods, they can heal injured friends as well as releasing teammates from bad effects, thus priests play a key role in a team. Likewise, even though they may be in considerable danger when venturing by themselves, they can also easily defeat enemies with their water element force.

You can download the video here. If you'd like to learn more about priests, warriors, champions or mages, you can check out the class introduction page here.

GodsWar Alpha Extended; Exchange Gifts Tonight

IGG has decided to extend the alpha test period of GodsWar Online, its first free-to-play 3D MMORPG, until Dec. 28.

With the arrival of Christmas, we have decided to prolong the Alpha Test for 10 days, so this test will continue until 8 p.m. Dec. 28. As a result, players who haven't yet joined the game will have another chance to experience it and existing testers will have more time to level up and enjoy the game.

If you're in the alpha, you can exchange gifts with GMs tonight from 8:30-10 p.m. EST as part of a Christmas event.

New Zones Open this Weekend in GodsWar Alpha

If you're interested in trying out any of these zones, they will each be open on different mornings between Dec. 12-14. Keep reading after the jump for the full list of times.
