Thanks to Bloodaxes, we've got a preview and impressions video from YouTuber "GRM Adrian" who is participating in the Ascent: Infinite Realm open beta in Thailand. While we have no news on this side of the world about when any type of A:IR beta testing will begin, it's a great look at how the game plays spread over 10+ minutes. Check it out and then leave us your thoughts in the comments here or in Bloodaxes' thread! Thanks for the cool find!

    On the fence on this one.  Some of things I seen just scream like cash shop items such as once again limited flying tied to stamina.  If I am on a dragon I would expect it to fly as long as I like but nope have to land because its wings are tired I suppose.  Buy a stamina boost for $5 and fly an extra 10 seconds or buy a bundle for $25.

    It looks more of the same of what is already out there for action based combat. I guess a deeper dive into the systems when english beta happens would have separate it or proclaim it more the same. Not impressed, zero hype, but I'll hold off for now.

    Hahaha, no need to thank me!

    Wasn't sure it was worthy of a thread by you guys (I can delete my thread if you want no problem) else I would have pmed you :P

    As for the game, I'm also a bit sceptical BUT I've been waiting for a new mmorpg to try for so long that if it's even remotely playable I'll be giving it a try. While the gameplay video has some things to be weary about, overall it didn't seem bad (compared to recent mmos at least). I love mechs, it hits my weak spot.

    I think you are mixing publisher and dev... Kakao is publisher of BDO and Pearl Abyss is dev of BDO.

    Also, for anyone who didn't enjoy (like me) that silly jumping animation, apparently you unlock different walking animations and can switch to one you like for your character (atleast that's what the comments said).

    Flying sounds like swimming in GW2 mixed flying in Aion.

    Looks an awful lot like BDO... which is not a bad thing as BDO is a good looking game.

    So... BDO with flying and mechs... OK.

    No English language option in Thailand server? I'd try it you can at least switch to English UI and texts.

    Unity and Unreal 3 - two engines I like but not for MMOs. Just a whole bunch of nope!

    Is this action combat or tab target. I have seen 3 reviews so far and this one is the only one that says it is action combat??

    Found another new first impression @SBFord if you maybe want to tag it in the first post:



    This guy seems to have played the Korean version and said that the Thai version seems to be better overall. He also compares it to Bless online at the start, but do keep in mind it's an early impression so having unreal engine 3 could still (my guess guaranteed) be an issue.

    Is this action combat or tab target. I have seen 3 reviews so far and this one is the only one that says it is action combat??
    This video mentions that he kept hearing people saying it's action combat like you, but he said it's more like Revelations Online where you still need to target enemies. I haven't tried it myself, and my first impression seemed to be similar to Guild Wars 2 but I could be wrong.

    LazyPeon made a first impression reaching further from these two videos (Reached level 30). Showcased more of the world, some story, quests and most important (for me) mech combat.



    All in all, it seems like it could be fun (hoping they don't ruin it with the cash shop) for a pver like myself.
