Mu Legend Open Beta Live Now!

Open beta for Webzen's free to play isometric action MMORPG Mu Legend officially began today. As with almost every open beta, there won't be any more character wipes going forward. While the game is in open beta now, Webzen has already indicated that they're working to add more content to the game. As is players on the global version of Mu Legend can play as 4 classes - The Dark Lord, Whisperer, Blader, and War Mage. The South Korean version of the game already has a fifth class called the "Emphasizer" (odd name), which should hopefully be launching on the global version soon.

The game is off to a remarkable start with every single one of the game's 3 servers packed. It took me 27 minutes to log in thanks to a 1600 person queue a day after it officially entered open beta.

Check out the game's new open beta trailer below:

Mu Legend plays a bit like Path of Exile and Diablo 3, except it features a persistent world and more MMORPG elements. I'm actually a bit excited for this one as I had fun playing it during the closed beta. While it's not exactly a revolutionary title, it's a solid isometric MMORPG. Plus it's a tad bit like Lineage Eternal and Lost Ark and may attract some of the people hyped for those games.
