Nexon’s mounted combat MMO called Dragon Hound, previously only known as ‘Project DH’ will be making an appearance in this year’s G-Star event. G-Star 2018 is a large game show convention in South Korea that takes place every year. Dragon Hound was first introduced two years ago in G-Star 2016.

KOG Games has revealed that a closed beta testing phase is coming up for the PvP-focused anime action MMO KurtzPel. Sign ups for the closed beta is already open via a Google form.

If this is your first time hearing about KurtzPel, the anime MMO consists mainly of PvP activities with small-scale PvE like 2-man co-op dungeons as part of its progression. While a story with animated cut-scenes will exist, we do not know how that will integrate with the game’s content.
Published by Nexon, the mobile MMORPG ‘Spiritwish‘ has entered closed beta testing in South Korea. The isometric mobile RPG shares a lot of gameplay and graphical aspects with Tree of Savior. If you are a fan of ToS or Ragnarok Online, this game is one to keep an eye out for. Dungeon bosses, quests, cut-scenes, NPCs and world-design act and look almost identical to Tree of Savior. There is also an auto-combat mode.
One main difference is that players create their own team of up to 3 controllable characters. There is no official word on whether an English version is planned for Spiritwish yet. Watch the official teaser below to see the gameplay. Beta testing will begin in Korea later in 2018.
