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.

Mobile MMO roundup: PUBG’s mobile version, Pokemon Go’s Ho-Oh, Mu Legends’ PvP, and Tera M’s launch

Welcome back to another mobile MMO roundup!

First up: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which has yet to actually formally launch on PC, is already getting a mobile game. Tencent and Bluehole will combine forces to deliver the mini version and promise more details soon, though as GIbiz points out, expect some tweaking to fit the Chinese political space. And this is all in addition to Tencent’s other debuting battle royal game, Europa, which is not a mobile game.

Niantic is teasing the addition of Ho-Oh in Pokemon Go’s raid battles for the next two weeks. Rural players continue to be annoyed by the way these new toys are being doled out and the way raids are being adjusted.

Grab a MU Legend starter pack key from Webzen and Massively OP!

Have you checked out MU Legend’s open beta yet? Apparently you’re in a quickly dwindling group. Webzen announced today that it’s had so many downloads that it’s “opened additional servers dedicated to EU, US and SEA regions in order to provide space for everyone to play the game.” In fact, Webzen has granted Massively OP starter pack keys to get even more people in and playing. The starter pack includes three days of Platinum Service, a three-day Type A Costume, a set of three-day Constellation wings, and 10 Holy recovery potions.

MU Legend heads into soft launch today

Today’s a big day for MU Legend as it moves from the official realm of testing to the realm of launch. Sure, the game is calling today its open beta, but there will be no further wipes before the official launch and everyone can jump in right now. Plus, you can spend money on the game. So that’s a soft launch, and we’d like to welcome the title to launchville.

It’s a real place. We promise.

More new features like a 3v3 combat mode are slated to arrive in the game before the end of the year, and further features like territory wars are on the docket as well (although considering how much of the year is left, you will probably need to wait until 2018 for that). Check out the open beta trailer just below, or if you’re at home (or in a particularly relaxed workplace) you can just download the game and start playing. And then check back this afternoon, as we’ll be streaming the game on OPTV!

Mobile MMO Roundup: Flyff Legacy, Ragnarok Journey, MU Legend, Project B, and Archlord Awake

Whether it makes you want to seek shelter or embrace the winds of change, the era of mobile MMOs and spin-offs is upon us. Let’s check in with what’s going on with three of them today!

Flyff Legacy, a successor to the cute online RPG, launched on September 26th for iOS and Android. In this flying-empowered MMO, players can take on the role of a Mercenary, Acrobat, or Magician and learn how to zoom around on a broom, conquer dungeons, collect pets, fight other players, and enjoy the “whimsical style” that is a hallmark of the series.

Another recent launch was Ragnarok Journey, the latest in the long-running Ragnarok Online series. The gameplay should be familiar to Ragnarok veterans, although the studio said that this version has upgraded graphics and offers a “fresh experience.” Players who jump into the launch period will be given a gift pack with a few helpful goodies to send them on their way.

MU Legend’s new site, stress test, and open beta date

After a delay or two, MU Legend is confirmed to be coming our way this fall: November 7th, to be exact. The hack-and-slash MMO sequel finally “committed” to an open beta test release date this week now that quality assurance and localization has been wrangled.

You won’t have to wait until then to get a taste of what MU Legend has to offer, however. Webzen is planning a stress test for this Saturday, September 23rd. The team hopes that by jamming a ton of people into the game, it can generate enough “precious technical data” to help with the OBT launch.

The studio even makes this test sound somewhat awesome: “We cannot adequately test all worst-case scenarios virtually, so we will need the cooperation of our fans to push our server to breaking point.”

There’s a new official website to check out while you’re waiting, and you can also watch the stress test trailer after the break!

Mu Legend delays open beta from September to November

Those who are eagerly awaiting the open beta test for MU Legend got hit with some bad news with the announcement that the game’s open testing/soft launch is being delayed from September until November. The announcement explains that while the closed beta version was ready to go, the current live version in Korea has already gotten feedback from players and brought certain vital issues to light, leading to the conclusion that the release roadmap needs adjustment and refinement to produce the best possible version of the game.

Could the team just release the current beta version? Technically, yes, but you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and between testing, balancing, and localization, it would result in a sub-par rollout for the title. Instead, everyone is just going to have to wait for a couple more months before the open testing period commences. We’re sure you’ll manage all right just the same, though; it’s only a little more time to wait.
