Upcoming Korean MMORPG Astellia for the West is having its first CBT test later today, and the start times have been revealed. For those in the east coast, players can expect to hop into game at 3am in the morning. While the timing is unusual, developers Studio 8 are based in Korea, and there are other reasons too.
