MU Online activates exclusive server while MU Legend hauls out the PvP

Here’s a two-for-one update on what’s going on with the MU universe of games. First up is MU Online, which just activated a new Eldorado server that offers exclusive access to a special city and the wealth of upgrades tucked inside.

The free-to-play MMO also rolled out Season 12: Part 2, a patch that contains 4th class quests and skill enhance trees, master skill tree renewal, a Deep Dungeon zone, and a handy quest guide. The studio is offering a free character boost for any players who clock at least an hour a day of playtime during a two-week window.

Over at MU Legend, the mobile MMO added 3v3 PvP to the game a month following the title’s open beta launch. The update also comes with cross-server functionality, which allows for a greater range of matches. Webzen said that this PvP update will help prepare the community for the upcoming guild wars, which will arrive at some point down the line.

Perfect Ten: 10 MMORPGs with playable fairies

Probably my greatest and most constant gripe about fantasy MMORPGs is that for all of the freedom and imagination that this genre supposedly boasts, game designers keep going to the same boring well of tropes and limit themselves instead of exploring possibilities.

Nowhere do you see this more than in races. Dwarves and Elves? We’ve got bushels and barrels of them, all on sale at discount prices. There are regular humans, of course, and Slightly Bigger Humans, and Half-Sized Humans, and Blue Humans. But what about getting outside of this been-there-played-that cookie cutter design to offer some interesting playable choices?

Like fairies, perhaps?

I could never understand why we don’t see fairies more in MMOs. They are widely recognized in the fantasy genre, they seem to have popularity, and they even share some cross-over with Elves. But the poor fae have been unrepresented, so much so that it took a lot of digging to come up with a mere 10 MMOs that allow you to play as one, whether it be as a race or class. Let’s take a look!

MU Legend kicks off second CBT while MU Origin opens a PvP server arena

Webzen’s been quite busy building its expanded MU universe up in its bedroom while its mom keeps calling it down to dinner. “Not now, Mom, I’ve got a beta test to roll out!” floats down the stairs.

Indeed, the second closed beta test for MU Online’s sequel, MU Legend, revved up today. The CBT will run from February 21st through the 28th and includes several new localization languages, including French, German, Brazilian-Portuguese, Spanish, and Polish. Over 200,000 players pre-registered to be part of the first closed beta, and any of those that participate in CBT2 will find that their character data has not been wiped.

Meanwhile, Webzen’s mobile spin-off, MU Origin, is getting busy with its 1.6 update. This patch opens up a PvP server arena, expands the journal, introduces the Guardian Soul, and adds more character progression with Muren’s Book and a specialty system. Check out trailers for both after the break!

Grab a CBT2 key for Webzen’s dark fantasy action MMO MU Legend

Feb 7: Webzen has let know that the first batch of keys it sent us wasn’t working and sent us a new batch. If your key was busted, grab a new one below.

Webzen is kicking off the second round of its closed beta for the global version of MU Legend later this month — on February 21st, in fact. MU Legend is the hack-n-slash “dark fantasy action MMORPG” sequel/prequel to the original Mu Online, which itself launched in the golden age of MMOs back in 2003.

“It features fluid and stunning hack ‘n’ slash combat, content that caters to both solo and party play, and a deep and intriguing world that will satisfy new players and fans alike. Players can choose from four distinct classes – Dark Lord, Whisperer, Blader, and War Mage – and engage in the endless battle between the races in the world of MU. MU Legend offers spectacular visuals that will run on lower-end systems and boasts detailed art design with stunning effects.”

If you’d like to hop in and check it out for yourself when CBT2 begins, then get yourself a key! We’ve got 5000 keys for just that, courtesy of Webzen. Do note that if you picked up a key for the first round last fall, you’re already in. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) for a key!
