The Mega Man Network reports that Rockman Online, the Korean based MMO from NeoWiz Games and Capcom, will soon be entering a closed beta testing phase. An advertisement for beta testing is apparently being handed out, which features some spiffy new artwork. Check it out:
The source of this news, Korean based fan RockMaster, believes Rockman Online could be released as soon as this year with beta testing beginning shortly. Screens and videos of the game in action will likely surface around that time.
Hopefully, we'll be getting some more concrete info on the beta (and how to participate) soon. Till then, please do admire the lovely new teaser image!
Even though I no longer care much for the X series in general thanks to its bat[censored] insane fanbase, I’ll still try to participate in this.ReplyDelete
After all, I do have some experience playing Korean MMOs, and I also have quite a few friends playing KMS (Korean MapleStory) that are intrested in trying Rockman Online as well.
Of course, now that I think about it, there is ONE thing that might stop the majority of us from participating in this.
It is common for Korean MMOs to not restrict access to their game through IP blocking (as in, you won’t need a proxy to play). However, they usually use something that is far, FAR harder to circumvent – the requirement to already have a KSSN (Korean Social Security Number).
If there is anyone else here who is interested in playing the closed beta (despite the language barrier, but I doubt that stopped many of us before), and they ask you for a KSSN, well, good luck.
Kick ass pic. I want this in the US!ReplyDelete
- Nice. I belive the game will follow Rockman X Command Mission model. I'm unsure about the "online" thing. Is about online multiplayer?ReplyDelete
I've searched EVERYWHERE on the net for this image. Without a proper source, how do we know RockMaster isn't pulling our legs?ReplyDelete
Getting a BN vibe there, X.ReplyDelete
Alilatias: Yeah, the KSSN is going to be a problem. Hell, you can't even play the Korean version of StarCraft 2 w/o a KSSN.ReplyDelete
Hopefully, they'll be willing to show some footage soon. I'm just itching to see some gameplay.ReplyDelete
You see that picture of X? You see his FACE?ReplyDelete
...he is not amused with the morons that compose the Mega Man fanbase.
@BN vibe Anon: That's what I thought exactly.ReplyDelete
That's a pretty kick-ass artwork there =DReplyDelete
Mega Man Xtreme Online. Plug-in, X! Fight against the Sigma Virus! XDReplyDelete
KSSN's arent that hard to get, tbh. My friends already got one for Digimon Online/Battle, whatever you wanna call it.ReplyDelete
ITT: Damn, X is as badass as it gets. He might even beat Zero on the badass-dar
I´d like to know a way to ASSKICK some pokeman traitors trying to pose around this game when it gets released (via internet protocol). Maybe some korean pal could give me a hand.ReplyDelete
I don't know why but I can't shake the look of X as a NetNavi in that artwork. Like he went digital!ReplyDelete
THe Digimon MMO was made by the same company, and it was made back in 2003, and did not release outside of Asia until early 2010ReplyDelete
I'm not waiting THAT long for this MMO to come out here
MAJOR UPDATE: Rockman online will be available everywhere in the world except America.ReplyDelete
thanks to you.. Connard
If you want to see Mega Man Online make it to America, then you should all join me in this petition to make it happen!ReplyDelete
