Groove Party Opens in Korea
Seoul, Korea – January 8, 2008 – HanbitSoft announced today that online dance game Groove Party (www.grooveparty.co.kr) is having its pre-open beta service started today for Korean market.
Groove Party tested its system and network quality through focus group test last December and it is now ready for the open beta. Groove Party opens its client download site at noon today, to prevent the overflow of the download, and starts its pre open service at four in the evening. Groove Party’s pre open lasts until the game starts official open beta, which will be announced shortly.
Groove Party is currently in open beta service in China, with big supports from Chinese players. Groove Party also advanced into Taiwan last week, and will be distributed to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao.
“It is more than grateful to have Groove Party finally present to Korean gamers,” said Alex Kim, CEO of HanbitSoft, and added “it took us a long way to finally open Groove Party in Korea because we wanted to make sure we have what gamers want. From the help of gamers who have been waiting for Groove Party’s open, we could achieve what we wanted. I hope they will like it.”
HanbitSoft announced that they will announce the date for Groove Party’s open beta service in Korea as soon as they review the systems and network status from pre open beta service.
