RaiderZ Closed Beta Dates Announced

With the success of Tera, the true-action combat system is being implemented in a new slew of MMOs. I was fortunate to check out Tera during its beta, and while it was fun there were more than a few things I felt it lacked. During this year’s E3 event Perfect World Entertainment showed off some sweet footage of yet another new MMO that’s running under their belt, and this one as well will be free-to-play. The game is called RaiderZ, and it puts true-action combat to the test.

RaiderZ is an MMORPG set in a fantastic realm. The world is bright and vivid, always providing something nice to look at. Players will be able to choose their class from a variety of choices that remind us of old-school Dungeons & Dragons. You can be a fighter, a cleric, or a mage and play the game your way. With the game’s use of the true-action combat system, players will need to stay on their toes in order to bring down some of the large and menacing monsters roaming the land. One of the best things about the game is the fact that, since it’s being published by Perfect World, it’s very user-friendly. The quests are easy to see, you don’t feel a sense of loss, and though most of the quests can be repetitive the gameplay is tailored well enough to keep things interesting.

The game hasn’t yet released, though an announcement coming from Perfect World reveals closed beta dates. Players who signed up and registered will start getting invites and the closed beta itself will start on August 8th. Participating in the closed beta will offer players a special chance to win an all-inclusive trip for two to PAX Prime, the video game show from Penny Arcade that’s already sold out. The event will take place from August 31st to September 2nd in Seattle, Washington.

You can learn more about the game and sign up for the beta on the RaiderZ official site. You’ll get to play the game and earn a chance to go to PAX Prime? There’s no reason for you to miss this!
