Peria Chronicles Releases Two New Kirana Combat Gameplay Feature Videos Prior To Upcoming Closed Beta In Korea
Nexon has released two new Peria Chronicles feature trailers showcasing the combat style of the Kiranas Triven and Tominia. Kiranas are powerful beings that form contracts with humans to lend them their powers. They come in different shapes and sizes. In the game, some Kiranas are in conflict with humans and others fight alongside them. This is the cornerstone of the combat system in Peria Chronicles. Some Kiranas can be summoned, some can aid players as weapons and some can do both. Watch the two trailers below to see them in action.
The first Korean closed beta for Peria Chronicles is set to launch on May 9th. The beta will last for just four days until May 12th.
