Closers-KR-14th-Character-4th-Jobs

The Korean version of Closers has just revealed several exciting news coming to the game in the summer and beyond. Keep in mind that while En Masse’s English version is releasing characters at a good pace with Tina’s release only three days ago, the original Korean version is still more than half a dozen characters ahead with even more coming soon. This is very exciting news and gives Western players even more to look forward to.

Upcoming 14th Character

Closers (KR) as of now has 13 characters and Nexon has revealed that the 14th addition to the roster will be released in July! The class name will be Mystic, but a character name has not been revealed yet. Based on the silhouette below, it’s highly likely that the character is a girl.

Revelation-Online-FR-DE

We’re just a bit over a year into its open beta and now My has applied French and German localization to the Western version of Revelation Online. The game’s interface has been resized to better fit the changes to each language of choice. Why does Revelation Online need to be playable in French and German languages? Beats me. Perhaps the corresponding regions for them have massive presence in the game, but our community reports that population is at a low point for this recently released Chinese port.

Before joining the game’s servers, check to see if you are launching the game in the language you want through the drop down menu in the Game center page. The language options are available on all live servers.
