Did you know, Asta is coming back, again, for the 3rd time.
Don’t let that disappoint you. Asta Online was a fantastic PC MMORPG game.
It was not heavily promoted at all, the first time was a flop, 2nd time was due to greed and exploits.
I believe we can make it a success the third time around. After all 3rd time the charm right.
PlayDapp has been in negotiating with ASTA IP Holder SuperTree since late 2020 and it has been official as of today.
You can read the source details here.
I have been in constant communication since Late 2020 regarding the title ASTA.
This was one of my all time favourite games and I would love to see it be revive and maintained properly.
I was luckily enough to speak to one of the Staff who is taking care of the project.
I can confirm the following news for everyone.
Right now, they are looking for Developers to join their team, if you think you have what it takes, go ahead and apply for the suitable position.
They are exploring either a Mobile Version or another PC Version.
Let them know your thoughts. Join the Discord today and let them know you want either PC or Mobile Version.
The following images are from the 1st & 2nd Launch.

I loved the aspect of PVP, it was super fun. Asta provided just that, both PVE and PVP content with Open World PVP and Instanced PVP along with Dungeons and Raids for PVE.
As you can see, Fayie is a big Battleground PVPer.
What’s more fun than walking around slaughtering everything in sight ? Isn’t that the definition of fun? Right haha, maybe not for other players.
So let’s go back on topic, Asta online had a very unique system. It wasn’t just about gearing up your standard Weapons and Armours. It had something called Divine Spirits. Those Spirits comes in grades just like Gear but gives both stats and you can only equip so many with so many different kinds to choose and farm from.
Below is an example of the UI and the stats given.
Another thing ASTA has done well was stat breakdowns, unlike the more popular MMOs nowdays such as Black Desert with these stats completely hidden.
Asta was very transparent with stats. Check out Fayie’s Character back on the Steam Version.
Not just that, there was lots of events going on back then. Hopefully PlayDapp will do the same and keep the player base happy with constant content and engagements.
Another thing ASTA has is Mounts, there always a collector in a guild, and there always collectors in MMORPGS.
Just look how successful WoW Mount Collecting is.
Shesh, they have so much mounts it’s ridiculous.
ASTA may not have that many, but they have pretty mounts for everyone to collect.
Here are a few examples~
All in All, I want to give a shout out to PlayDapp_Ryan Chown #4135
On Discord for keeping me updated constantly and PlayDapp for picking up ASTA and letting us relive our memories.
What people don’t understand, it’s never just the publisher who makes the game a success, the playerbase has to help too.
Once ASTA is launched, I’m going to play it once again !
