ESTsoft's Highly-Anticipated Howling Sword Enters Open Beta Testing

Seoul, Korea, February 17, 2010 - ESTsoft, a Seoul-based software and game publisher, announced an open beta testing (OBT) for its second free-to-play role-playing game (RPG) Howling Sword. The OBT begins at 2 pm on February 22nd.

ESTsoft begins its OBT earlier than planned after two successful closed beta tests (CBT) last January. User feedbacks from two CBTs are all positive about optimized test environment and stable service.

Howling Sword promises a non-stop fun till you can take no more. "We are confident enough to move up the OBT," said Young Hwan Min at ESTsoft. "We will deliver as we did with our first RPG game, Cabal Online."

Howling Sword already entered a publishing agreement in Japan even before the OBT.
