KOG Games is the company that’s produced MMORPGs like Elsword and Grand Chase. They’re preparing to launch their third MMO, called KurtzPel — much like Grand Chase before it, it’s a third-person action title with anime visuals. KOG has been putting the game through several closed and public beta tests over the last few months, but at last they feel the game is ready….well, almost.
A nearly complete version of KurtzPel is now available on Steam Early Access. The game is free to play, and supports itself with DLC packs. The Early Access version has launched with two, called Founder’s Packs. They include Steam Exclusive Costume sets, the “Vanguard Combat Suit” set, and two DLCs, Diabolic Witch and Blazing Fist, which activate missions you must play to unlock weapons, additional content and rewards.
In KurtzPel, classic action game dynamics are enabled when players outfit their characters with 2, separate jobs (called Karma) that can be swapped out and utilized interchangeably, mid-combat.
Players can enjoy various 2v2 PvP Modes; queued up by a smart, automated match-making system, player created 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 Custom Missions. Or, players can embark upon a larger-than-life, raid style, quest-driven battle system against big, bad boss monsters.
The finalized version of KurtzPel will launch worldwide this summer. Keep an eye on www.kurtzpel.com.
