The Ragnarok Online 2 Reboot

Here you have the new Ragnarok Online in all its early-stages-glory.

Starting over

As you may or may not know by now GRAVITY Co., the company behind the original Ragnarok Online MMORPG, decided to give up on their old version of Ragnarok Online 2. They are scraping most of the stuff and starting all over. The first Ragnarok Online has a special place in many peoples hearts and the sequal was never as popular and never made to the US and Europe like the first one did.

One of the things I heard people complain about was the look of the characters. They looked like small kids running around.

Sure the sprite based characters of RO1 looked cute and small, but it left a bit to the imagination that it wasn't 10 year olds running around. And it seemed like this part is changed. RO2 was also very different from the original, which is fine and all, but why not take what makes Ragnarok good and keep that. And now they have.

The new game will have lots of the well known classes and features of the original, while hopefully still inovating. It will be free to play and the Korean Closed Beta has started.
