Korean MMORPG Astellia is set to launch on the Steam platform on January 30th. The buy-to-play game is already downloadable and playable from the web-based service. Players form both the web-based service and Steam platform will be on the same regional servers.
On October 8th, Astellia Online‘s latest update introduced the new Class Evolution system which gives players the ability to “evolve” into one of three specializations. Additional experience points can now be earned by Level 50 players towards advancing their Star ranks in their chosen specializations.
Fantasy MMORPG Astellia is now set to officially launch in the West on September 27th. Astellia’s English version will be fully available as a buy-to-play game with a number of differences to the free-to-play Asian version.
Several classes that are gender-locked in Korea will not be gender-locked in the English version. Developer and publisher Barunson E&A promises to provide free one time gender swap vouchers when they launch alternative genders for the classes that do not get gender-unlocked during the launch.
