Itâ€™s been a long time coming. In some parts of the world the original Cabal Online came out a little less than 10 years ago. Not too many years after that, fans were screaming for a sequel and have been ever since. I remember chatting to MMOBombers about CABAL 2 and the rumors surrounding it when I first joined this site almost 5 years ago.
Fast forward to today and ESTGames has announced that CABAL 2 is just around the corner and needs some â€œgamers who long for the days of MMOs with deep, immersive RPG elements, epic skill-based battles and in-game communities that defined the word â€˜massiveâ€™â€ to sign up to not only take part in the upcoming closed beta, but to also have a chance to play as early as next week in a special focus test that starts on December 19th.
â€œThe launch of the beta program and focus testing for CABAL 2 is the first step toward delivering the smooth, strategic and social MMO experience our passionate community deserves,â€ said Steve Pae, executive vice president of ESTSoft Inc. â€œWith beta signups and the launch of our new forums, itâ€™s finally time for the CABAL 2 community to officially come together, and weâ€™ll reward a lucky few with the chance to be the first to experience the game through our focus group testing next week.â€
If youâ€™ve been waiting for CABAL 2, you can head over to the site now and sign up for both the Beta and the Focus tests.
Will CABAL 2 capture the more â€œhardcoreâ€ crowd of MMO players yearning for a more in-depth experience? We wonâ€™t have to wait too long as CABAL 2 will be launching sometime in 2015.
