9Dragons: Awaken Enters Closed Beta


9Dragons has had its fair share of troubles. The game was initially published by Acclaim alongside The Chronicles of Spellborn before being shut down. It was later reopened by GamesCampus. Now, it is one of three titles that are to be published in the West by a new company called RedFox Games. Tonight at 6 PM PST, it also has the honor of being the first RedFox title to enter Closed Beta.

9Dragons: Awaken is a renewed version of the aging title. A large number of changes and additions have been made, including the new "Wanted and Jail System" that allows players to mark other players that kill them as "wanted" for a fee. If the player continues to rack up wanted status, they can even be sent to jail for one real, logged-in hour before being put on probation for 24 hours. The full list of changes can be found here.

For the time being, you can still sign up for the Closed Beta on the official website. The exact length of the test has yet to be announced, but it has been confirmed that a wipe will occur once the Closed Beta has concluded.

  • Why is RedFox games publishing this oldie....? It wasn't terrible during its prime, but it's just..... old now.

    LOL...this was the first mmorpg that i played! I start playing it like in...2007, maybe? I don't know. But i quit for a long couple of years. In 2015-2016 i wished to play again. The thin thtat i noticed was the desert that this game have become. Almost no f...anyone play it! And now, after not log-in in 1 or 2 mounths they close my account, I tried to call the support to reactivate my account and to put my character with the status that i had it, but they dont gave a shit! And that have put aside my mood to continue play the game! I guess this game dont changed a lot since its release, where the new clans? That's nothing very good added in this game, and i guess that why this game is nowadays almost a desert, with almost no one playing it.
