Luthiel Is the New MMORPG from AION Director and It Looks Pretty Like AION
Ex-AION director and lead designer Jee Yongchan is currently working on a new mobile MMORPG called Luthiel (KR official site: http://luthiel.ilovegame.co.kr/) for South Korean studio Entermate. The game will start closed beta in Korea on April 25 and it just looks like AION. Watch the trailer now.
Surprisingly in Luthiel, the 2 playable races are called Elyos and Asmodian, just exactly the same as AION's. Players, as Devas, can fly across the world and fight in the air. Basically the game brings over AION's world setting.
Players can have their own fortress where they can receive special rewards by completing fortress quests such as constructing and delivering goods. It seems that the game focuses on fortress battles.
It's interesting to see how NCsoft react to this project since they are also working on the mobile version of AION called AION: Legions.
