Throne and Liberty (PC, PS5) is an upcoming MMORPG that is scheduled for release later this year. The developers recently announced that the final test is running – with 100 participants.
Throne and Liberty is being developed by the NCSoft studio and is intended to be a great AAA game that wants to convince with action-packed battles.
In addition, the weather system in the MMORPG should play a very special role and not only influence the game environment, but also your character. Monsters, dungeons and your skills change depending on the weather and time of day.
Originally the game was called Lineage Eternal, but in 2017 it was completely redesigned and given a new title. After years of development, Throne and Liberty is now scheduled for release within the next few months, in the first half of 2023.
Here’s a trailer for Throne and Liberty:
The final test with more than 100 people
Recently there was news regarding the final testing phase of the game.
On twitter a post was made via the official account on February 20, 2023, in which the game makers announced:
“The final test of the MMORPG #ThroneandLiberty with no less than 100 players will start soon and last until February 22nd.
In addition, a media test will take place on February 23rd. Some information will be released in the next few days.”
Why is that strange? Given that Throne and Liberty is currently a huge hope for MMORPG fans, where a rush of up to several hundred thousand players would be quite conceivable, the relatively small number of testers at 100 is somewhat surprising – especially since they are still like that is very emphasized.
That doesn’t seem to be enough even to see how the game is supposed to work with a single full server, like to see:
- How crowded are starting areas when people pour in?
- Exchange the first problems when several hundred people are attached to a quest at the same time
- Not to mention: How does the game perform under full load?
Experience has shown that problems that the development team could not foresee only arise when there are large numbers of players. And the release of Throne and Liberty is coming up.
According to the The Korea Times website Choi Moon-young, NC Soft’s Chief Development Manager, explained: The final test serves to check the quality of the game and to be able to respond directly to users’ questions.
At Throne and Liberty there was already a beta test in advance, the highlights of which were in one YouTube video be shown – However, this took place internally.
What about the server structure? Throne and Liberty will provide multiple servers per region. They should then have space for 3,000-5,000 players. This places the game between New Word (2,000) and Lost Ark (about 20,000).
When is Throne and Liberty released? An exact date has not yet been announced. However, the release should still take place in the first half of 2023.
