On June 30th Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), the OBT of C9 will begin, following the Early Access Event which has been ongoing since June 27th. Up to this day, WEBZEN focused on content development, localization, and various events to meet the player’s feedback to create a player-oriented game. For this, C9 had three previous beta tests, and the ‘C9 Championship’ finals that was successfully held during ‘E3 2012’ in Los Angeles.
C9 is a highly anticipated Action RPG game featuring but not limited to diverse PVP combat, endless skill combos, precise controls, and ultimate fury skill. With the start of the OBT, the classes available to play are Fighter, Hunter, Shaman, and Witchblade. Witchblade is one of the most anticipated classes in C9 that was added from the OBT that can specialize in either ranged frozen magic or splendid aerial combos.
Additionally, C9 has been chosen as an official title for ‘Game and Game World Championship (GNGWC) 2012’ global tournament event annually hosted by KOCCA (Korea Creative Contents Agency). This tournament will commence Europe region’s Finals in August, 2012 at ‘Gamescom’, Germany along with America finals in October.
