Allods Online official launch "very soon"

Beta coming to an end.

Free Russian fantasy space massively multiplayer online game Allods Online will come out of beta and launch officially "very soon", Gala Networks said today.

The free-to-play MMO has been in beta for ages, and even seen the addition of three expansions.

The launch of the next expansion, Volume 4, goes live some time during the spring for all European servers. It adds two new zones and increases the level cap to 47.

Allods Online breaks with the Asian tradition of free-to-play MMOs with a Western flavour, and boasts striking artwork and flying ship battles as well as owing a clear debt to genre titan World of Warcraft.
