We've written a lot about Diablo 3's cash shop lately, but that's not the only game that will feature real currency exchange for virtual goods. Nexon's Dragon Nest, a free-to-play MMO currently in beta, has just opened The Dragon Vault, a fully functional game bazaar that allow players to make purchases with all major payment options. Nexon has also added an exclusive dungeon encounter for high level players, the Minotaur’s Nest.
In order for players to enjoy these and other game features, Nexon is extending the open beta, which will keep rolling until the game officially launches. This means players will retain all of the characters, items and other enhancements they’ve made since they started playing the beta.
“The response from players to the open beta test has been overwhelmingly positive. We want to make Dragon Nest as enjoyable as possible, so we’re extending the open beta period to continue to test the game’s features and listen to player feedback,” said Davy Garaix, Dragon Nest producer at Nexon America. “Players love the game’s combat system, the colorful art style and all of the social features, and there is still more to come when we launch, such as PVP combat.”
On Monday, August 15, you can tune in to catch the debut of the official Dragon Nest launch trailer on X-Play at 6:30 p.m. ET and PT. If you miss it, we'll have the trailer online at 7 p.m.
