MMORPG Tree of Savior Aims for Summer CBT


A highly anticipated MMORPG <Tree of Savior> has released its recent update of schedules.

IMC Games has released on the 30th via its developer blog (http://blog.treeofsavior.co.kr/) its recent update for <Tree of Savior>’s launch schedule.  Additionally, they have also answered a few of the most asked questions, including specific game contents, systems, and future test schedules.


First, <Tree of Savior> is being developed as a traditional MMORPG.  Most of the field and dungeons will be played out like a typical MMO games, and to emphasize action most controls will be done via the keyboard.  Gamepad support is also being developed and tested.

There will be a total of 4 basic classes: Warrior, Magician, Archer, and Priest.  These 4 classes will be able to advance into various upper rank classes specific to their basic class.  However, it will also be possible to opt out of advancement in order to retrain the basic class.


For example, magicians will be able to advance into either the Pyromancer or the Cryomancer, while having the third option to retrain into Magician 2nd Circle.  In this case, magicians will be able to attain higher skill levels than they were able to in the first circle or learn new high rank magician skills.

Ultimately when the Magician attains enough levels as the 2nd Circle to be eligible for another class advancement, they will have the 3rd Circle Magician, Pyromancer, and Cyromancer to choose from, on top of the 3rd rank classes Linker and Psycochino.


While their previous game <Ragnorok Online> had the gender of the character determined by the player’s social security number, <Tree of Savior> will give players the freedom to choose.  Characters will receive class specific costumes upon advancing into another class, allowing players to customize the appearances of their characters.

IMC Games has adjusted their testing schedules after the previous FGT in February, and now aims for the first CBT to be within this summer.  As for the system requirements, they plan to have it set to the level that the current Ultrabook Notebooks in sale can run at optimal speed.20140430212057_716720140430212058_827320140430212053_4136
