Ragnarok Online Launch New Event
Gravity Interactive, publishers of a variety of popular MMORPG titles, have just announced the start of a new event for Ragnarok Online, one of the longest running MMO titles available. Turning to a free to play model two years ago, Ragnarok has enjoyed a boom in player numbers and has recently added Classic Servers, a highly requested feature that allows Ragnarok Online players the unique opportunity to return to the original Ragnarok, an era filled to the brim with fond memories and nostalgia.
Show Me The Money! Eerie, unrecognizable sounds have been heard within the Guild Halls. Thus, Rune-Midgard scientists were dispatched to investigate the curious noises. Their findings rocked the foundation of the world – literally! The discovery of dimensional cracks leading to an alternative dimension deep within the ancient castle was an unexpected boon. Quickly, Cat-Hand agents offered to help maintain the dimensional cracks, which have been established as leading to an area now nicknamed Hall of Abyss.
But Rune-Midgard wasn’t ready to give up their coveted prize so easily! Finally, after heated debate between the Rune-Midgard Kingdom and Cat-Hand agents, it was decided to leave ownership of the Abyss in the hands of the guilds.for a price!
“Players will now compete rigorously to own the Hall of Abyss, even temporarily, but in this war might doesn’t make right,” said Jason Heimdallr Koerperich, Ragnarok Online Producer at Gravity Interactive. “Instead, the War of Emperium will be an economic battle, where the highest bidders will lay claim to the new zone!”
Castle Investments will be available for a short period of time per game date, and total investments will be updated every five hours. Cat-Hand agents will be scattered throughout the castle to collect funds. Players can invest the minimum of 10,000 zeny (the in-game currency of Ragnarok Online) up to a maximum of 2,000,000 zeny. Each realm will have their individual totals tallied separately, so guilds compete among known enemies to hold control of the new coveted territory.
The Halls of Abyss is aimed at players 135 or up, and provides both solo and group content. Players can learn more, see the latest screen shots of Abyss, and much more at the official Ragnarok Online Facebook and share their experiences and strategies with fellow players!
It’s so impressive to see a game almost a decade old still pumping out fresh ideas and events. Ragnarok Online has a special place in the heart of many MMO fans and we hope these events are a sign of things to come.
