|Gravity Interactive Launches Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion|
MARINA DEL REY, Calif., May 4, 2004 - Gravity Interactive's Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion, an anime-style, massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG), is now available in the United States.
Ragnarok Online is one of the world's largest MMORPG communities -- more than 25 million players globally, 780 000 concurrent users, representing 130 countries. Inspired by the fantasy graphic novel of the same name and written by Korean author Myung-Jin Lee, players can be anything they desire -- from a strong and vengeful fighter to a swift thief, caring healer, or an intelligent mage.
Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion adds job classes, maps, monsters and skills. The graphics have also been enhanced, providing more visual detail for characters and objects. The most notable addition, other than the floating city itself, is the new job classes. Players can now become Crusaders, Dancers, Alchemists, Sages, Bards, Monks or Rogues. Each new class incorporates new skills previously unavailable in the Ragnarok world.
"With so many elements added and upgraded, Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion is a totally new game experience," said Peter Kang, senior director, Gravity Interactive.
Ragnarok's success has been fuelled by the ease of gameplay that appeals to players who traditionally shy away from MMORPG's. The title is easy to play for even the novice MMOG player.
Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion maintains a non-technical design, but advances the game and worlds to explore to the next level.
Ragnarok Online: Juno Expansion also features charming characters and activities that appeal to a wide audience. In Ragnarok Online's world, players can own pets, make friends, own guild castles, sell products as well as slay monsters.
Players can download the game and play free for 15 days at http://iro.ragnarokonline.com. Unlimited gameplay is available for $12 a month or 30-hour sessions can be purchased for $7.99.
