Here is information that will delight the whole community, the first closed beta of Elyon is announced!! Here is the translation of the official page.
First closed beta test (CBT1)
In recent years, Elyon (known as A:IR previously) has undergone extensive changes in many parts of the in-game experience and various adjustments in the combat system. As developers continually work to make Eylon a fun MMORPG, at kakogames, we're getting ever more intensely for a Western release of the game.
Today, we are pleased to finally announce the first closed beta test of Elyon in Europe and North America as well as in Oceania. We know the wait has been long and we hope nevertheless that you are still happy to test the content that Elyon has to offer and help us make the necessary changes for the Western version.

Version of the game
The version of the game will match that of January 27 in Korea, with some adjustments to the visual content and the game that are no longer relevant (in-game accessories, event quests, etc.)
Why will we play on an older version?
Due to the heavy work to be done for the translation of the game, it was decided to focus on a version of the game for CBT1 in order to work on the translation of the future content, so we can offer you the test period a little earlier and give our teams more time to work on the feedback that will be made. We are aware that some parts of the content have changed since then, and we will take this into account when beta testers return.
Do you expect to launch this version at launch in the West?
No, the cbT1 version is quite far from the version that will be set up for western release. Our goal is to launch the Game Eylon on a version as close as possible to the Korean version, translation speed is the deciding factor. When Elyon launches, we'll be a little behind in terms of the content of the game, but our goal is to catch up as quickly as possible between the Korean and Western versions.
For CBT1, the game will be available only in English. At CBT2 and beyond, the following languages will be available: English, German, French and Spanish.
There will be two regions available: Europe and North America.
Only for CBT1, each region will start with a single server. Additional servers can be opened if necessary.
Each server will have a number of channels.
Will it be possible to change servers freely with your character?
No. Swapping or transferring characters is not possible. If an additional server opens during CBT1, you will have to start zero again if the server changes.
The Rubi store will not be available during CBT1. To give an overview of the items in the shop, a florilège will be offered through an event NPC or via in-game mail if necessary.
Why will the store be turned off?
The cash shop is always being reviewed as well as the items offered in the game, and we are not ready to show you the content. Some items will be available for 1 gold coin at an NPC and we hope that misconceptions about in-game monetization can be avoided.
Maintenance will be possible during CBT1 to ensure server stability and resolve technical issues. A notification will be made should this happen.
The breakthrough in play
The advance in play will be postponed to 0 after the end of CBT1.
