Tree of Savior, Ragnarok Online spiritual successor, gets Greenlit

Tree of Savior's chugging along toward an international release. First stop: Steam Greenlight.

There is no other MMORPG I want to play as badly as Tree of Savior. Any old Ragnarok Online player knows that want, and hype levels are reaching new heights as the game's interntional closed beta is slated to begin May 29th.

Closed beta is right around the corner, but imcGAMES doesn't want to wait: Tree of Savior was placed on Steam Greenlight this morning. I would tell you to go give it your approval, but..

.. apparently the community doesn't want to wait either, because Tree of Savior was Greenlit less than twelve hours after being posted.

Tree of Savior not only has that Ragnarok Online feeling, but boasts non-linear questing and progression alongside a number of unique systems to keep players engaged and keep things interesting. Not only that, but there are around 80 classes total, each of which with a totally unique playstyle.

All of the above combined with a pseudo-ARPG movement and combat style has me super hype. I miss the old days of Ragnarok Online and that feeling of adventure -- a feeling most of today's MMORPGs just can't hack. Hopefully Tree of Savior will give me just that, but until then all I (and everyone else waiting) can do is keep read up on the Korean version's progress and hope we get an international open beta sometime this year.

If you're as hyped as I am, make sure to keep tabs on the Tree of Savior International Community site to see what's going on and make sure you apply for betas when you can.

Ogryns are good lads. Simple as. Anyway, I'm basically a human tornado and I love jank. Also simple as.

    RO was the first ever online game I played and have easily put in 500+ hours in that game. It was one of the RPGs that felt worth buying items with real money for.

    Oh god I hope they don't screw this up, and I hope it's F2P as well.

    ToS just looks so much cleaner than Ragnarok. RO didn't do it for me at all, but this is very much piquing my interest.

    also do you know anything about possible NDAs?

    No idea about NDA, and it is the international CBT.
