Seoul, Korea– May 21, 2009– Lizard Interactive announced that XtraVision Entertainment, strategic partner in Taiwan, officially started service of the globally played fantasy MMORPG title Cronous for Taiwan last May 20, 2009. The decision to start official service came only after five days of Open Beta Testing and no Closed Beta Testing. Cronous is already serviced in many major countries and stable, so CBT was deemed unnecessary. OBT started on May 15 and the number of concurrent users quickly climbed to over 5,000. With a major Taiwan holiday coming up, it was decided to start official service on May 20 with special opening celebration events.
Lizard CEO Sang Wook Lee stated that the successful launch was in main part due to the detailed market studies and major promotional campaigns by XtraVision in all the major media platforms.
Cronous is a long running fantasy MMORPG title developed by Lizard Interactive using its own proprietary 3D game engine. As with other Lizard Interactive MMORPGs, Cronous is constantly updated and renewed to meet the needs of today’s gamers.
XtraVision Entertainment is a Taiwanese publisher of such popular titles as RAN Online, MoonShake Online and Secret Adventure Online.
