8 year old MMORPG will close in July, but there is still hope

echo of soul the blue – titel 1-01

The Echo of Soul game could come to an end on July 15, 2022 as the agreement between publisher Gamigo and developer Nvius expires. Players are hoping for a new publisher to take over the MMORPG.

The Free2Play MMORPG Echo of Soul was first released in September 2013 in South Korea, followed shortly thereafter by China. The western servers started in 2015, initially with their own client and later also with a Steam version.

Hope for a new publisher

Gamigo published a statement on their website about the imminent end of the MMORPG. Nevertheless, they speak of the possibility of taking over the anonymous game information from another publisher at a later date, if someone should be found. There is currently none.

They therefore advise players to regularly check the website and their e-mails for news. In their statement, they do not reveal why Gamigo themselves do not want to continue to take over Echo of Soul (via EchoOfSoul).

As the game is taking its final steps for now, the publisher has already disabled the real money currency Aeria Points. According to Gamigo, if a player still has points left, they will be retained if the game is continued.

Players probably don’t have to start all over again

Echo of Soul has existed in several versions. The MMORPG existed on Steam from 2015 to 2020. When the Steam version ended, the saves were not transferred. Players should create a new account and thus lost all their progress.

However, this fate should not befall the current players of Echo of Soul. Scores could be retained and handed over to the future publisher.

What is this game anyway? Echo of Soul is a classic theme park MMORPG that offers a mix of PvP and PvE. You quest and go through raids, dungeons, arena battles and guild battles.

The special feature of the game is the soul system. In battle you get souls and can use them to customize your character.
