Fractured MMO

Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy. 
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.

ESO: SCALEBREAKER DLC GAME PACK

The Scalebreaker DLC game pack brings two new Season of the Dragon dungeons, expanding upon the events of both Wrathstone and Elsweyr. The Dragons are free from the Halls of Colossus, and now you must deal with the fallout of their release. While these stories are part of the year-long saga, you can enjoy both without having completed either of the year’s earlier content—enjoy!
Lair of Maarselok
For centuries, Maarselok slept deep in the mountains between Elsweyr and Grahtwood. However, upon the opening of the Halls of Colossus, this monstrous Dragon has awoken, and now threatens to spread his corruption into the domain of the Wood Elves. Only with the help of the Warlock Carindon and the forest spirit Selene can you defeat this terrifying new Dragon!

Hunt the great Dragon Maarselok!
Moongrave Fane
Hidden within a fallen Khajiiti temple, the vampires of the Hollowfang prepare to perform a terrible ritual. Joined by the former Dragonguard Grundwulf, they wish to drain the blood from a captured Dragon! You and your team must fight your way into the fallen ruin and put a stop to their plan before it’s too late.
Both dungeons can be attempted in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option available for those looking for a challenge. Brave delvers can discover new rewards up for grabs in both dungeons, too, including new item sets, Achievements, collectibles, and more.
PURCHASE DETAILS
The Scalebreaker DLC game pack is free for all ESO Plus members and available for purchase for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store (listed under DLC).

I am interested, although wary due to how many eastern MMOs have tried and failed to make an appearance and last in the west.

I have some interest in this one as well... My only concern is that it is B2P, and they're asking for $40 minimum for the game.  I hesitate to spend $40 on a game that most reviewers are saying "we've seen this before".  According to most of the reviews from closed beta, they are saying that this game definitely has potential and has some very interesting concepts.  It is certainly possible that it will be a really fun game to play.  However, they usually temper their excitement with comments like:

"Astellia leaves you feeling like you’ve already played this game before…and we really have."
"There is no amount of storytelling that can explain how this makes sense."
"Every new game is fun for at least 3 days, but I don't know if this one will last beyond that."
"It is a very pretty game, but I don't think that is enough anymore."

After Bless Online, I am definitely wary of any Korean -> English conversion MMORPG.  So many titles have been ported over to USA, and so far all of them have fallen short of expectations.  Personally I am interested in Astellia Online, but not enough to drop $40 on it before I play it.  I'll probably wait to see how the reviews are for the first couple of weeks.

See now that is smart... That concept is made for people like me, because if I stick with the game 30-days I would be a lot more likely to buy it and keep playing.   $10 I can bet on a MMORPG.  I bet $10 on Steam games all the time.  If I only play it 10 hours and uninstall, I feel like it was worth my $10 to find out.  I wouldn't feel the same if I had paid $40,  but clearly they wouldn't care because they already had my money.

As the saying does - "Never pass up the chance to walk a mile in someone else's shoes.  That way you are a mile away, and you have their shoes." ;)
