Neo Steam: The Shattered
Continent Charges Into Open Beta

Full steam ahead! Atlus Online’s
fantasy-steampunk massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Neo Steam: The
Shattered Continent, kicks off its open beta today. Anyone who registers before
June 8 will have an opportunity to jump in for an early glimpse at the game, and
to reward players for their dedication, all beta characters will automatically
roll over to permanent accounts at the game’s commercial launch. All that hard
work and hours spent customizing your character will not be in vain!

“Building a strong, happy community
is our priority, and the open beta of Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent is our
chance to cater to our members, show them the great progress we’ve made with the
game, and continue to take their much-appreciated feedback,” says Tyler Kim,
Head of the Online Division, Atlus U.S.A., Inc. “In the remaining weeks before
the game’s official launch, we encourage players to take a look at Neo Steam:
The Shattered Continent and contribute to the blossoming community.”

The Neo Steam: The Shattered
Continent open beta will culminate with an exciting special gift, a pair of
steampunk-inspired goggles handmade by an artisan specifically for one lucky
fan. Atlus Online, a daily destination for community-focused gaming and
interactive entertainment, will also continue to run various promotions beyond
commercial launch, giving away prizes and exclusive in-game items.

Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent,
Atlus Online’s first MMORPG, transports players to a world where two nations
battle over a precious resource called Neo Steam. From the onset, customization
is key to each player’s experience, where they can choose which nation to join
and select from a number of specialized classes. As players battle to expand
their nation’s resources and protect their borders from invasion, they must
learn to harness steam technology to upgrade their equipment, learn new
abilities, and progress in their chosen class. Adding to the immersive aspect of
the fantasy-steampunk world, the game also features various forms of steam-based
machines and vehicles for faster in-game traveling.
