Here is an overview of the game, via KOG:

KurtzPel is an anime-inspired third-person battle action game created by KOG, the developers of Grand Chase and Elsword Online. Developed through the Unreal Engine 4, KurtzPel boasts bright visuals alongside in-depth character customization that fully utilizes the aesthetics. You can embark upon a larger-than-life, raid style, quest-driven battle system against grandiose beasts or experience two-versus-two player-versus-player queued by a smart, automated match-making system.

KurtzPel takes place in the magical, wondrous world of Erthesia, which becomes plagued by a fanatic nation called Bellatos who brings forth the Purification War in order to eradicate all those who defy their religion. Now you must must take on the role of a hero as a member of the Chase, an organization of KurtzPel fighting to save their world from evil.

You will be able to compete and cooperate with fellow Chasers, fighting to raise your ranks for a shared cause: to defeat the Bellatos Army that threatens Erthesia. In KurtzPel, classic action game dynamics are enabled; characters have two separate “Karmas” that can be used interchangeably so that you are free to switch between various fighting styles, weapons, and classes that suit your needs.
