Koreans invade Europe
Game Network adapts Korean massively multiplayer role-playing game for west
Despite its relatively small size, Korea has one of the biggest online gaming populations in the world, with millions of people playing both locally developed games and foreign hits like Diablo and Starcraft. Recently some of Korea's games have been starting to seep out into the west, and the latest to emerge in Europe is Legend of Mir, a massively multiplayer role-playing game with more than a passing resemblance to Diablo.
Although it has only just been officially announced, a public beta of the European version of the game has apparently been available from Game Network for the last week, weighing in at a hefty 210Mb. Despite the lack of publicity though, the company is already claiming that thousands of people are playing the game across Europe. The beta test is expected to continue until the game's commercial launch in September, so if you want to see what the fuss is about, download the latest beta at LegendOfMir.net.
