Lucent Heart Confirms May 12th BFF Beta
Gamania Digital Entertainment announced today that the wait is almost over, the final closed beta for Lucent Heart is confirmed for May 12th. After introducing the community to the land of Acadia during recent sneak peek beta events, Gamania is ready to enter the next phase of testing, inviting players to put Lucent Heart through its paces during the highly anticipated two week Badass Friends Forever (BFF) closed beta.
The team has been hard at work refining the game, incorporating feedback from previous testers, as well as implementing more features. The BFF event will be Lucent Heart’s largest and final closed beta, and will utilize the updated 4.07 client. Both old and new players will experience a streamlined version of the game with many improvements.
Aiming to bring people together by focusing on social interaction, Lucent Heart leverages a rich matchmaking system that pairs up couples for quests and adventures in the fight against evil that’s invading Acadia. With magical Zodiac based abilities at their disposal, along with help from trustworthy pets, friends, and lovers, players will take on hordes of enemies and bosses as they fight their way through thousands of quests, dungeons, and 20 unique zones.
Horoscope System: Each player’s Zodiac sign (determined by their birthday) affects their stats and skills. Not only will they get buffs as a daily horoscope, they gain powerful Zodiac abilities and armor that are specific to their Zodiac sign – affording players a personalized experience while they level up and explore Acadia. Check out the Zodiac powers in action here.
Matchmaking System: “Cupid” will pair up players based on specific matchmaking characteristics. Lucent Heart is a highly social experience and the matchmaking feature is meant to take players beyond the standard grouping systems with which they’re accustomed. Couples are encouraged to go on lighthearted “dates” after being paired, and as they level up and quest together they gain access to specific couple-only buffs, items, and areas which further enhance the gameplay. Couples can even culminate their relationship through in-game marriage. Check out our trailer for the Matchmaking System.
As a special treat for cosplay fans, Vanessa (the official Lucent Heart Star) will be filming a video series at E3 dressed up as the goddess herself, ‘Theia’. ‘Goddess Theia’ will be taking community requests for the videos. You’ll be able to watch her in action at Gamania’s youtube page during E3 as she tours the booths at the request of the players.
Though keys are scarce, OnRPG saved an extra 1,000 keys just for this announcement. Without a key you aren’t guaranteed access to the beta so make sure to grab one here.
