Battle of the Immortals Closed Beta Delayed

The Battle of the Immortals closed beta was scheduled to launch today, but Perfect World Entertainment has decided to delay the launch of the test until mid-April to give players "the cleanest and most polished game experience possible."

According to the blog entry, the team still has a long list of changes that need to be implemented before it can launch the Battle of the Immortals closed beta. You can read all the details after the jump.

As many of you may know, our initial launch date for Battle of the Immortals Closed Beta was planned for February 10th.

Over the past several months, we have been localizing, updating, patching, revising, and testing BoI. Now over the past week, we've been slaving away, working nights, coordinating with the development team, and drinking energy drinks non-stop. We've made a huge amount of progress with our version of BoI, however we're still not satisfied with the results.

We want to provide all Perfect World Entertainment users with the cleanest and most polished game experience possible and as a result we have decided to delay the Closed Beta for BoI until mid-April.

The following is a list of changes that are scheduled to occur prior to this new Closed Beta:
- Support for Windows 7
- Support for 64-bit systems
- Support for higher monitor resolutions
- Fully integrated in-game video tutorial system
- Revised cash shop structure and items
- Revised quest flow for low level players
- Revised monster AI
- Readjusted damage and HP for both players and monsters
- Revised dungeon loot tables

We will continue to slave away between now mid-April in order to ensure we deliver the most polished and unique version of Battle of the Immortals to date.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we release even more information about BoI as well as provide more details about our upcoming revised launch date.
