Grand Chase: Europe Begins Closed Beta

Irvine, Calif. – Feb. 2, 2011 ­– SG Interactive is bringing true player-versus-player (PVP) action to the European Union with the closed beta launch of free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), Grand Chase: Europe. During closed beta, Gamers will be able to choose from three different characters, each with its own style, abilities and special attacks, to test their skills in intense PVP battlegrounds or complete dungeon challenges. Optimized for European players, the Grand Chase: Europe closed beta is available now to players that register for free on the official website.

Grand Chase: Europe features:

  • Fine-tuned Arcade Controls – Simple to learn but challenging to master, Grand Chase Europe uses a control scheme which allows players to execute combo skills and chain attacks with a strong emphasis on accuracy and timing.
  • Multiple Fight Modes – Players will be able to challenge each other to mano-a-mano duels, band together in the strategic Team Play mode or duke it out in Survival PVP mode, an all-action slugfest for up to six players. 
  • Character Customization – As players increase their levels and skills they will unlock new weapons, armor and accessories to custom-tailor their individual battle style and dramatically change their character’s look.
 

With early access to the game, players will embark on the Grand Chase: Europe Day Mission for a chance to win a unique European Union signboard, which can be permanently showcased above their character. Players can earn special item rewards every time they reach specific levels, and for the exceptionally competitive, the first player to take each character to the max level will be honored during open beta with a statue in the game’s central hub.
