Publisher Gameforge has announced that the Hack and Slash MMORPG Guardians of Ember, which was delisted last year from Steam, has now returned in Open Beta via the game's official website.
Developed by Taiwanese studio Runewaker (the creators of Runes of Magic), the 2019 re-launch of Guardians of Ember in Beta already features numerous quality of life improvements — to gameplay, missions, character customizations, UI optimization, and more — as well as expanded regional localization support and additional languages.
We saw a considerable number of players joining Guardians of Ember from several countries when we announced the new local servers, and so we have put a lot of effort in making the game available in their native languages so that they can enjoy the same immersive experience as other players do in their own language. Guardians of Ember has been available in English, Spanish, and German throughout the Closed Beta. Starting today, the game will also be available in French, Italian, Turkish, and Polish.
Guardians of Ember combines the Hack and Slash and MMORPG genres into an action-oriented multiplayer online game, creating a pulse-pounding combination accessible to hardcore fans of and newcomers to either genre. Players choose from among four races and six different character classes and optimize their skillsets with endless options. Combat is brutal, tasking players with calculating their attacks for optimal damage in order to tear the opposition to shreds. Featuring fifty-eight different regions, over sixty randomized and challenging dungeons, and foes from all planes of existence, Guardians’ world of Olyndale is vast and filled with challenges. Those who join the crusade to reclaim the holy ember — alone or with friends — are in for an epic adventure where they’ll enact righteous fury against evil.
Players who had purchased the game on Steam while it was under publisher Insel Games have been taken care of by the Veterans’ Reward program, which provides many valuable items at no cost for them when they return to the game. Multiple free items are also currently available for all Guardians of Ember players in the newly opened Premium Shop — from valuable resurrection spells, stat boosters, and more.
