Closed Beta contest
Our closed beta contest has two tiers, with prize criteria that can cater to everyones playstyle. Everyone has a chance to win!
Everyone who has achieved level 40 or above will get 5 hours early access to the Open Beta. Eligible players will be able to start playing at 6:00 pm Pacific Time on March 16th. The early access will allow players to reserve their usernames, setup clans with their friends, and get a head start in the game. The early access will end at 11 pm on March 16th. All character information will be saved and be available when the servers relaunch.
The contests second tier prize is an exclusive pet: the Katsune Kid*. The Katsune Kid is a humanoid pet that resembles a white fox with a large tail. It cannot be tamable, and it currently even cannot be found in the wild. There are two ways you can win this one-of-a-kind pet:
-The first 25 people to achieve level 65
-An additional 75 players will be chosen at random. Players must have spent at least 10 hours in the game are eligible.
Winners will be contacted via emails on instructions how to receive their pet.
