Trion Worlds today published a new producer’s letter including the details surrounding the first public Closed Beta event for the upcoming launch of the fiendish MMORGP game, Devilian. The Closed Beta testing event is scheduled to take place starting 10am PDT on October 22nd and continuing through until October 26th at the same time. Players with previous access to Alpha testing will be able to participate in the Closed Beta event, although the Alpha servers will remain online throughout – barring any weekly maintenance periods.

The developers hope to introduce the MMO audience to a new approach to online gaming, forgoing the traditional high fantasy style for a more devilish experience as frantic action RPG joins thrilling features such as crafting, trading, mounts, pets, guilds, wars and dungeons.

Players can take up arms as rampaging Berserkers, harness destructive magic as mystical Evokers, wield heavy weapons as keen-eyed Cannoneers, or stalk their enemies as Shadowhunters brandishing bladed chains. Each Class hides a unique Devil Form with infernal powers they can master and unleash against their foes. Additionally players will take part in epic and chaotic 20 vs. 20 PvP battles, lose themselves in crafting and quests, explore fully-fledged cities, form guilds with friends, and join multi-guild alliances.Trion Worlds
