Rappelz, the free fantasy MMORPG enters Closed Beta in Turkey this Wednesday 27th May

Gala Networks Europe, the leading online game publisher that operates the gPotato.eu game portal is proud to announce that Rappelz, our first fully localised Turkish language game enters Closed Beta this week. Between Wednesday 27th May and Wednesday 3rd June, players across the world will be able to join over two and a half million players who have played Rappelz with fully localised Turkish content and community features, backed up by the Turkish customer support team.

During the Closed Beta week, players who win the level 20 challenge will be able to keep their friends lists as well as getting an exclusive item pack for the OBT containing the Red Lydian mount for 30 days, an Adventurer Cloak and two stamina savers. Creatures who hit level 20 will also be kept at the start of the OBT but reset back to level 1. There will be a wipe of player data and friend lists for everyone who does not reach level 20, and guilds will also be erased.

Available to download from the fully localised Turkish website at http://tr.rappelz.gpotato.eu , Rappelz takes place in a fantasy world and allows players to tame a wide variety of terrible creatures and lead them into battle against thousands of other players. Lucky beta key holders will be able to experience this brand new world on the 27th of May, and those without a beta key will can still enter the lottery to participate by pre-registering at http://tr.rappelz.gpotato.eu/Ad/?TYPE=PREREG .
