Perfect World announced today the launch of the closed beta testing phase for Rusty Hearts , its highly anticipated hack and slash MMORPG. The game is based on cel-shaded graphics, fast paced combo attacks and dungeon exploration and with thousands of new registrations on launch day itself, Rusty Hearts gives Perfect World Entertainment its largest day one closed beta turnout to date.
Mark Hill, Game Producer for Rusty Hearts said:
“Within a few hours after launch, our servers reached max capacity and we had to scale up the servers in order to accommodate the flood of players. It was an exciting day to see the overwhelming response of players dedicated to Rusty Hearts. Now, we will strongly take into consideration player feedback to ensure that the game is fully ready for its wide release.”
During the closed beta period, players will be immediately ushered into an epic battle against an army of vampires and monsters. Players will also get to explore content up to level twenty, immerse themselves in two of the game world hubs, raid dungeons in parties of up to four players, and collect over 3,500 rare items and unique loot from hundreds of quests. Once players progress their favorite character to level ten, they are free to engage in five epic PvP modes.
To celebrate the launch of closed beta, all players that log into Rusty Hearts any time before August 3 will automatically be entered into a giveaway to win one of two Astro A40 headsets and backpacks, customized exclusively for Rusty Hearts.
