The Chinese giant NetEase is constantly climbing up the food chain in the world of videogames. NetEase covers practically all the bases, from releasing hits like Rules of Survival to working side by side with Blizzard (in fact, they’re the ones in charge of developing Diablo Immortal). In this case, their new game for mobile devices is an action adventure with MMORPG gameplay called Dawn of Isles. For now, it’s still in its tester phase. Its enormous production values, along with its style and setting that inevitably reminds us of the cell shading installments of the saga The Legend of Zelda, make it a diamond in the rough. Currently, you can access its test servers.

It’s not yet clear how long this test phase will last. The previous one took place for Taiwan and was open for one week, but in this case, there’s no hint of a cut-off date on its Facebook page or its official website. Even so, since we clearly see “test server” when we start the game, we’d prefer not to bite our tongues if and when our progress is wiped clean when the beta ends, and it’s officially released.

The game is beautiful, hands down. After choose from four character profiles, you’ll be immersed in a tropical adventure that mixes gameplay from RPG, crafting, and MMO in terms of social interaction. The combats in the game take place in real time using a virtual joystick, but the majority of the adventure is based on exploration and crafting materials. You can cut trees, grow food, build your house, break rocks to get minerals, or domesticate animals, along with other tasks.

Many of the game’s mechanics are enhanced through synergies with elements from the environment. So, mixing water, earth, fire, or air together will help give you original special skills and interactions with environment. Without a doubt, this all is incredibly reminiscent of Breath of the Wild. The references are clear.

You can already pre-register for the game through Google Play, in addition to subscribing on the official website to get rewards when it’s released globally. That said, the beta (which already includes English as a language option) can be downloaded via XAPK without any geographic restrictions, although you will need a compatible package installer, like our official app.
