Jango Games today announced the start of the open beta test for Discovery Online, a MMORPG developed by Northstar and due to be launched in Europe in January 2009. Discovery Online is a sea-voyaging and trading game that encourages the player to be most creative. The game's potential for narration motivates the player to create his legend and to tell his epic story. It proposes an open skill system in which the player can choose his way and his class as the game progresses. Thus, the player evolves according to the circumstances, becoming a hero or a villain in turn. Discovery Online sets the stage for naval combats during which knowing how to navigate and maneuver the vessel is as important as knowing how to fire its cannons. The game client is now locally mirrored.
