Currently, Priston Tale 2 has only been released outside of beta in Korea. Player response in Korea has been very good, with over 30,000 players online simultaneously on the 1st day of open beta, and 40,000 players online simultaneously as of the 3rd day.[1] The game still maintains popularity and is competing with SP1 and Twelve Skies for market share, with tens of thousands of players online simultaneously at any given time. Yedang Online has contracted with various publishers and localized versions (including North America) will begin beta service in early to mid 2009.[citation needed]
