Gala Network's gPotato has acknowledged that Astrum Nival's highly awaited astral-exploration MMO, Allods Online, has now entered open beta and is free-to-play. That’s right, no more annoying beta keys, no more character wipes, just good ‘ole fashioned MMORPG fun.

According to the press release…
For those who have already played Allods Online in one of its Closed Beta versions, the game client will update automatically and several features from previous phases will be carried over to Open Beta.

Despite the character wipe, characters will still be retrievable on accounts where players have already participated in the closed beta. In addition to this, closed beta testers will receive special in-game items for having participated in the stress test.

For those of you who don’t know, the game revolves around leveling and questing as usual, but with the added story-element of building an astral ship, acquiring a crew (mostly of other players) and venturing the universe to discover new allods. It’s one of the few free-to-play games where it embodies a fantastical look with equally engaging gameplay.

You can download the beta and start playing after the free sign-up over at the Official Website.
