    Default Gunz 2: The Second Duel Open Beta US Release This February

    Status Update 2014-01-29

    28 January - MAIET Games

    Hello everyone,

    First of all, we’re sorry about late update. As we finished our Early Access program preparation last week, we have been waiting for completion of Valve’s game review process. We did not expect this to take this long. We’re currently working with Valve to finish the review process and set a release date for GunZ 2. However, we had to postpone it to February because of the Lunar New Year’s day holiday (1/30~2/1) in Korea, where MAIET office is located.

    Again, we apologize about the delay but we promise to launch the game soon in early February.

    Yup. I played a bit of the Euro beta. It was pretty fun.

    My only issue is the game is lacking content. Only 3 characters with a small set of weapons, skills, costumes, and maps. It's great in small doses though. I plan to play it casually.

    The PvE mode sold me well since theres an actual story and its actually really fun. Definitely excited to play without the lag the EU beta had.

    I'll give it a shot when it comes out, the skill ceiling looks pathetically low compared to Gunz though, my gunz 1 inner fanboy will probably force me into hating it.

    I've been browsing the steam page like a hawk, waiting for the day I can play. I hope the launch happens really soon.

    I played it and it's pretty bad. Doesn't hold a candle to the first Gunz

    They added a 4th character earlier. It's the night stalker or some crap.. Either way, the game is definitely more streamlined than the 1st one. All it really has for it is the name. :x

    Waiting for:

    Chronicles of Elyria (PC)

    Unless there were some major changes since I played, this game isn't really worth anyone's time.

    It's definitely worth a look for anyone that can get past the fact that it's not GunZ 1 in HD.

    Movement takes a bit of getting used to, but feels great when you learn how handle the game's momentum. Gameplay is now more balanced around team play rather than solo performance, although it is still very possible to hold your own in solo situations. Plus it has plenty of its own little quirks in the core gameplay that players are starting to pick on and starting to develop new techs for the game. Only major difference is that these techs are nowhere near as game-breaking as the ones in GunZ 1.

    Only real issues I have with the game is the lack of overall content and the ground mobility options are pointless compared to moving around using walls (unless you're playing as a Shield Trooper.) They really need to reintroduce tumbling and add a slide mechanic to make ground battles more exciting.

    GunZ(1) sucked hard.
    They let a glitch define the combat. There was no anti hack.
    I also think the game was NEVER updated outside of cash shop cosmetics.

    Which is why GunZ(1) was shut down 2 years before it's successor was released.

    Did they ever even add the large swords to the retail server? I don't recall them ever being put in. Kind of sad that the private servers for the first GunZ game progressed much farther and faster than the retail servers ever did.

    Loved me some Gunz 1, though hackers generally ruined most DM games but learning how to k-style was a blast

    What do you mean? They've been posting all the updates on the greenlight page, a US server has been confirmed since before the EU server.

    Is this going to have a quest mode like the first Gunz? I thought quest mode was a blast.

    From what I remember from early videos there is a much improved PVE mode including giants bosses that you have to have to climb and ***** slap.

    Anyone know if I can play International from Korea?

    Korea has its own servers and I can normally play games using my ID number but Netmarble is one of the only companies that foreign ID numbers don't work with.

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry about keeping you all wait for such a long time. We apologize about the delays and promise that we’ll repay your patience and support with better gameplay experience.

    Waiting is over. We have received green light signal from Valve and fixed the release schedule right away.
    GunZ 2 will be released as an Early Access status at 5 PM PST Feb 17 2014.
    All the game features including auto-matching PvP mode, co-op PvE mode, and premium item will be open. However, the game service will be in beta mode meaning service stability is not fully secured. We will maintain the beta tag for several weeks or months depending on the service status.

    Again, thank you all for the constant support over the past few months or even for a few years for some of you. We are very excited to finally open the game to all of you. Let me wrap this up by quoting Venister, MAIET CEO’s own words, “I am very excited to introduce the sequel title right when GunZ the Duel is having its 10th anniversary. Though we’re nervous and excited to release and operate online game service on our own for the first time, it meant a great deal to us to prepare game service on Steam, one of world’s biggest game publishing platform.”

    Thank you
    GunZ Team
    Release date confirmed.
