Smilegate Korea is looking to hire QA Game Testers to locally test the leveling, playable jobs, quests, and combat system of Lost Ark Online. It seems like they've been recruiting since January with an application deadline of this month. Just a small news notification to keep ya guys informed on the latest Lost Ark stuff! Maybe they made some major changes to the game or didn't receive much feedback from the previous test? Surprise Open Beta....!? Just kidding, if they follow the traditional testing route in Korean games, the game should be going through a couple more closed betas. Fun fact, when I was in High School my dream job was to become a QA Game Tester, I failed my interview FML.
The Japanese version of SoulWorker Online recently started selling special limited time Valentine's Day outfits for the female characters of the game. Equipping an outfit will enable the player to use cute special emotes shown in the trailer below. Would you like some chocolate senpai!? Not much love for the male characters of the game this time around. Oh, it looks like the Korean version is also getting the outfits. English version? I don't know! Still waiting.
I finally got around to testing the new Fish Island 2 game that was released last week and I must say the game itself has evolved a lot compared to the previous version. It's also so much more MOE or should I say cuter than before. I spent more than six hours testing the game right after downloading it. Fish Island 2 has a lot of new features while retaining some of the older ones from the original. Some of the new notable features are the new 4-player real-time coop raid system, crafting new ships, farming cash gems, cute avatars, costumes, and more.
Nuri Work's Futuristic Sci-Fi PC MMORPG Wild Buster is finally going to launch in South Korea starting next month on March 2nd. The game has been in development for quite some time now, I remember making a post on it awhile back in 2013, lol. Anyhow, the quarter-view MMORPG offers action controls featuring hack & slash melee and some hardcore shoot'em up gameplay. Wild Buster also provides players with a fast-paced leveling system. I should probably test this game out at least once after skipping out the previous betas.
Nexon Korea just started recruiting Closed Beta testers for the Dragon Nest 2 Legend! The upcoming beta is only available for the Android device and Korean users as it requires a cell phone. The Closed Beta schedule hasn't been announced just yet. I've been hearing rumors mentioning that Dragon Nest II is supposed to have improved graphics and gameplay compared to last year's teaser trailer. I'm hoping there is a way for Foreigners who doesn't have Korean contacts to try out the game via APK share.
Tokyo Ghoul is going to get another smartphone game called Tokyo Ghoul :re Invoke which is a casual turn-based RPG with a tap battle combat system. Featuring special limit break attacks from the original Anime and some form of multiplayer! For some reason, I'm getting Destiny Child for Kakao vibe from this game. Anyway, I'll probably check this one out since I did enjoy watching the Anime. If you're interested in trying out the other mobile version, it's called Tokyo Ghoul Carnaval, it's not too shabby.
